Switching light fixtures..
My old light fixture stopped working (the fixture was quite and replacing the bulb didn't work), so I decided to buy a new fixture at Costco to replace it. I swapped the fixture and it didn't work, so I've added two photos to this post:
1) The wires from my fixture's junction box
2) The wires connected to my existing light switch
The switch was installed prior to moving in. From reading online the red wire is typically used for three-way switches, except I'm not aware of any other switch that's connected to the same fixture. The red wire is currently connected to the "lead", black to the "line", and white to the "neutral", however it doesn't seem correct according to the switch's manual (attached photo).
My light switch has a black/white/copper wire. I had connected them to the red/white/green wire in the fixture photo but it didn't work.
I think at this point I have two options:
1) Rewire the light switch (although it worked with the previous fixture. maybe the previous owner wired it incorrectly
2) Attempt a different combination of attaching the light fixture to the junction box wires
