Hi all

 

I replaced one of these that worked fine until the spouse hosed the house down

The new one does not seem to work out of the box and I followed instructions precisely. It does not activate despite any adjustment or light level. Any tips on where one can go wrong with this e.g. wires crossed over?

In and out reversed would cause that. Don't rely on the colors being the same as the old one as red or brown can be either on them.

Yes. That is experience.

Also check that the wires in their side of the chocolate block connector are actually screwed onto the conductor and not insulation.

Sorted thanks. In and Out was reversed. Traced the live wire with multimeter.
