New outlet assistance, In the house my boyfriend and I just purchased I noticed a light fixture needed to be added but I'm not sure what to do.  The ceiling is to low for a fan so a light is all we can install.  Can someone please let me know what I need to get the light fixture installed.  The instructions didn't cover new installation hole., Electrical
Wiring lights for porch and garage, I have a switch in my kitchen and one in my garage that controls the garage lights and the porch light, I can cut the lights on or off from either switch. people did the roof and messed up the pipe the wires was in didn't know till way after job was done when the wires got wet and the power went out to the garage. I ran new piping and wire I tried to mar wires as best as possible.  Wen the power acted crazy I unhooked the switches and the plug / electrical socket. I'm trig to hook it back together.

HELP!!!!!

Thank You!!, Electrical
Replacing Lights with Textured Ceiling- Covering Holes, We are renovating our kitchen. The kitchen has a fluorescent light we are taking down. We are putting in can lights but we need to find a solution to cover the hole after the fluorescent light comes down. We can't fill the hole with a can light since the upstairs floor joist is directly above the hole. The ceiling is textured (not popcorn) and can't be patched easily. Does anyone have any suggestions of what we can do to cover this hole?, Electrical
Lighting up Moroccan Lanterns, I have a series of empty Moroccan lanterns hanging from the ceiling in my living room. I would like to be able to turn them all on in one step (flipping a switch or plugging something in.)  Does anyone know of a product that would give the look of real candles and allow me to space the lights as needed?  As you can see from the pictures, the space between lanterns is more than the standard distance than most strings of lights have.  Thanks!, Electrical
Too many wires?, After I called in help, my electrician noted that the lite switch install would be easy and I still haven't figured it out. Can't figure out how I ended up with 5 black wire for two fixtures- sink lite and exhaust fan, Electrical
Installing track lighting, I am attempting to install a track lighting system in place of an old track lighting system which broke.  I think I have followed all of the instructions, everything seems to be wired properly and I have checked and there is power running at the box, along the entire track and at the switch.  I have tried two different lights in case one was broken and neither will turn on when I flip the switch.  One worry I have is whether or not the ground wire is installed properly and I don't know if this would affect the system.  But my worry is because there is an extra wire coming out of the ceiling box which is just copper (no green on it), so I attached the green ground to that and attached the wire cap.  So the ground coming from the lighting system seems to be properly connected but I am not positive.  I have tried to take the right pictures and have attached them but any help would be greatly appreciated., Electrical
