    Default Electrical lighting problem - extension light is always on....?

    I have just changed the ceiling rose of 2 lights - one of which is an extension off the other. I am fairly certain the master is wired correctly, but the spur light now stays on all the time. The other light works fine i.e. every time I turn on and off the switch, that light goes on and off. Any electrical experts point me to where the problem might be please.

    The light that stays on all the time is obviously not wired correctly. My suspicion is that you've got a hot feeder in the box with the switch leg for the light and you've connected the light to the feeder instead of the switch.

    As the previous poster said, a meter will tell you what is hot and what is not and also find the switch leg for you.
