Hi Paul. Welcome to Just Answer. Are you able to post a photo of the ceiling box, with all wires shown?
Thank you for posting the photos. Would it be okay with you if I look it over tomorrow evening, and get back with you then?
Have you identified the constantly hot live wire yet? There should be at least one in the box. It may be spliced to other wires.
Thank you for the additional information. I only got one photo, of the ceiling box. If you are open to it, I suggest changing the format of our conversation to a phone consultation. I think we'll resolve the issue much faster that way. I work full time away from this site, but I will have time to work with you over the phone tomorrow evening. There is a slight price increase for phone consultation, but I think you'll be happy with it. Please let me know your thoughts about it. Thank you.
Hello again. I apologize for the delay in getting back with you. Yesterday evening was crazy busy for me... multiple medical appointments, etc. Anyway, is there any way you can meet me here on the site while you are at the house, with a volt meter handy for testing?
