Red, Black and White Wires
Hello, everyone. I sure hope someone can help me!
I am replacing a ca 1980 wall sconce in a 1922 house. I took the old sconce off and it has a white and a black wire, and no ground. The box has a red wire and a white and black pair that have been very firmed attached to each other. Someone put a lot of work into twining those copper ends together. The black wire from the fixture was attached to the red wire in the wall. The white wire from the fixture was attached to the twinned black/white wire in the wall. There is no ground to be seen.
My new fixture has a black, white, and bare wire (for the ground). How should I hook this light up to the box?
