Hi everyone, I want to change my under kitchen cupboard lights. the old ones work, but aren't that bright. However when I wire in the new ones, they don't work.
The new light is definitly working (I tested it from another power source), and the little switch on the new fitting is in the on position.
When I replaced the old fitting it works, Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh!
