Lighting Help


I took a ceiling fan down and put up a five light Chandalier. The Chandalier works, but the wall switches will not turn it off or on. PLEASE HELP

You wired it wrong.
If you want more info then that you will need provide us with more info. Did the switches operate the fan before? or the lights only on the fan? How was the fan/light hooked up? How did you hook up the new light fixture?

My guess is that you have a three way set up. Sounds like you crossed a wire.
