How do I wire three led down lights from an existing ceiling rose? And you are probably aware they are not low voltage.
Is this a light kit that is intended for a ceiling fan? Also what are the voltage requirements of the LED lights? What kind of connections do the LED's have?
The type of fitting is a GU10 lamp holder; it also can be wired for low voltage. I do not want low voltage halogen because I think they have a very short life. That is the reason I decided to go for LEDs. The fitting has three terminals; live neutral and earth. The bulb I am using is a PAR16 GU10 240v led lamp.
This is not a fan kit. I just want to replace an old ceiling rose with three of these LEDs.
Is your existing ceiling fan on a 120 volt circuit?
I have seen a few of these lamps and most are rated for 100-240 volts.
Also what brand is this lamp?
The actual LED bulb is aurora
All you will have to do is connect the live and the white to the 2 live hot wires on the ceiling fan. There may or may not be a place to connect the ground. The 240 volt confused me for a second until I saw that you where from the UK.
If there is a white wire coming from the ceiling fan, connect it to the white on the GU10 base.
I do not have a ceiling fan. Can I distribute the power that is at the ceiling rose of the existing light, via a junction box to the three 240v LEDs?
Yes you should be able to do that.
Welcome to JustAnswer! You can add the 3 pendants to the existing source. Connecting the new lights to the existing wire that is in the ceiling from the switch, is now to the ceiling rose.
