Going from a ceiling fan to a chandelier
I am changing out a ceiling fan in a bedroom to a chandelier. Inside the light box is a black wire, a white wire, a red wire, & a grounding wire.
Excuse my lack of correct terminology --
On the chandelier (bought from CL) is a cord that resembles a regular plug-in cord, though the casing is stripped off & the wires are hanging out about an inch. There is also a grounding wire on the chandelier.
I've tried connecting that wire one at a time to each of the wires in the box, while plugging the un-used wires. When I turn the electricity on, I am not getting any light. I thought it would be as simple as that. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance for any advice!
