While there might be numerous reasons behind this light installation problem, poor connection in the circuit tops the list. Remember to narrow down the issue properly by observing when and where the light is flickering.
- Bright lights and dim lights

How to Replace Light Fixtures in Singapore
While you should always engage the service of trusted electrician when replacing light fixtures, some people with experience and are familiar with electrical services can often try carrying it out too.
Steps on How to Replace Light Fixtures in Singapore
Prepare the tools needed and switch off the power supply
- Lay out and prepare all the necessary tools and safety instruments needed for the replacement of light fixtures. Make sure that you have the following tools before you start working:
- Mounting hardware
- Wire cutters
- Voltage detector
- Short copper wires for joining
- Wire connectors
- Electricity tester
- One of the first few steps before starting any kind of light replacement of repair is to switch off the power supply from the main point of the building. This will always remain an important precautionary measure to ensure the safety of the electrician handling the task. However, the electrician also needs to know beforehand exactly which switch is directly linked to the specific light fixture to be replaced. It is better to mark that specific switch in order to correctly identify the electrical wirings connected to the power supply point.
Removing the old light fixture
- In light fixtures, the assembly of wirings is usually hidden from sight as it is covered by a canopy. Hence, you should open up this round canopy by removing the screws holding it together. The canopy is commonly found in all light fixture types, which this matter easy for electricians to handle.
- You will see a set of black, red, and green cables after opening up the canopy Unscrew all of these three main existing electric wires installed on your wall or ceiling. Make sure that these three wires are completely disconnected from old light fixtures before connecting it to the new one. But don’t fret, because a good electrician in Singapore is fully experienced in handling this procedure when replacing all electric fixtures.
- Remove the old light fixture from the ceiling or wall when the wires are fully disconnected. It then remains a crucial part of any light repair and replacement works in Singapore as the rest of the screws are removed to take out the fixture. Have a heavy or a more sophisticated type of fixture? Hire a professional electrician to avoid any accidents as they are mostly trained to handle all types of light fixtures in the ceiling.
Connect new wirings and install the new light fixture
- Ensure that the bracket or the electrical box are tightly screwed onto the ceiling. Use a single baseplate as the mounting structure on the ceiling if needed. Some light fixtures types come with their own mounting base and in such cases, the electrician does not need to use his own metallic mounting bar for this purpose.
- With the help of new wire connectors, connect the electrical wirings of the new light fixture to the wirings in the ceiling. The black wire of the new fixture is supposed to be connected to the existing black wire of the ceiling. On the other hand, the white cable should be connected to the existing white wire only. Wrap the copper or the green wire around the green screw on the mounting bar. Otherwise, you can also directly connect it to the copper wire of the ceiling.
- Fit the new light fixture to the ceiling. Do note that some ceiling light fixtures may come with a chain, the length of which should be adjusted for perfect installation. Carefully hide the chain carefully inside the canopy. Securely fit the entire fixture by tightening the screws on it.
- Finally, don’t forget to test the newly replaced light fixture. Do this by switching on the power supply to check if the light fixture is working well. Any loose connections between the black or white cables will prevent the light fixture from working at the optimal level.
