Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to answer any of your electrical questions.
You want to connect them all together.
what do I connect the aluminum ground to?
All the grounds go together.
Use a wire nut to put them together.
Ok. So non of them connect to the ground nut on the fixture?
yes, in addition to the ground wires, there's a green nut on the fixture bracket, which I presume is to be used for something
I see what you are saying. Yes you can connect it to the ground nut as well. They will all be bonded together. The screws from the metal bracket connect it to the box. Go ahead and connect it to the bracket. They are all inter connected.
now your really confusing me. Is it a case of either or? Basically I can use a the wire nut and connect them all (assume you mean one of those plastic caps) OR simply connect them each to the green nut on the bracket?
When I say green nut I actually mean a metal screw with a "Nut" head. Not sure what the name of that type of screw is
or maybe its a green bolt head. I trust you get what I'm saying
Only one wire to the bracket, green screw. The other to the ground wire in the box.
Ok. This is gonna be my plan. Please confirm its satisfactory.
Attach the wire in the box to the aluminum wire on the fixture with the wire nut
then attach the copper wire on the fixture to the green screw nut on the fixture
No problem. Have a great night
Please rate. Thank you for your time
