    Simply match the wires from the ceiling to the fixture. Make sure to turn the power off at the breaker box. If you are unsure, hire a professional to take care of it for you.

    Hi Kevin,

    I'm sorry that you haven't gotten answer yet. I was hoping someone with electrical experience would answer you. I haven't ever had your experience so I tried to look it up and learn something new. The only thing I learned is that the red wire from the ceiling is the "hot" wire. Check your fixture directions if it tells you which wire should be connected to the "hot" wire that should help. Be sure breakers are turned off and be sure to cap the wires. You can find caps in a hardware store. As I stated I haven't done this, so if you're not sure and what I typed doesn't help, please call a professional electrician. It's not worth doing it wrong and causing a fire or blowing out your new fixture. Wishing you the best.

      Thank You, I was thinking that was it but usually you have a black and white wire. Thank you again.
