I am trying to install a new dining room chandelier. The old one was working fine, until it died. I can't say exactly what the cause was for the old fixture to fail.
I have installed the new fixture and can't get it to work. There are two switches feeding the fixture, one is a dimmer and one is a toggle. The fixture has two brown wires, and one copper wire. I attached the copper wire to the green screw on the ferrule crossbar. One brown wire is connected to black in the ceiling box, the other brown wire is attached to white in the ceiling box. In the ceiling box are two red wires connected to each other. I have not done anything with the red wires.
I have verified 120V to the white and black wires, and the fixture does not light. When the switch to the fixture is turned off, there is still 60-62 Volts across the black and white wires. Is this normal?
I have verified continuity between one brown wire and the bulb holder female base, and continuity between the other brown wire and the male tang at the bottom of the bulb holder.
There are no breakers out of position at the panel. I reset the relevant breaker back and forth, just to be sure.
What are my next steps to diagnose this? Can one of the switches be bad, even if I am reading 120V at the black and white wires? Thanks for any input.
