I just moved home and one of the ceiling lights downstairs is not working . There are 2 single black wires going to 2 different terminals and 2 red wires joined together and going to one terminal . What should I be connecting the love and neutral plastic pedant light fitting wires to . Any help would be appreciated

:dunno: You say a light is not working, then you say which wires should you connect the light to.
I will guess you have taken a light fitting down and are putting up a new one? If so connect the lights live to one black and the lights neutral to the other black. Leave the reds alone.

Thanks for the reply. That's what I thought but it doesn't seem to be working . Should the red wires be connected to something at all .

Only each other in their own connector block.
