Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX X'X here to answer any of your electrical questions.
You would connect the white to white, black to black, and your ground wire (bare wire) you would connect to your metal box.

Again NO no voltage test. but since I just blew a few I guess there is power
Never mind I will get a professional to do the work. Text does not work when trying to do electric
