    Default installing flushmount fixture

    I am installing a flush mount fixture, but the house wiring has only three wires while the light fixture has four--a black, white, copper and yellow (see photo). I'm wondering if I should cap off the extra or ground it. Any ideas?

    What does the installation instructions say about that wire ?

    A green stripped wire could indicate a ground but without knowning what the fixture is and what that 4th wire is for ---- can't say for sure.

    The instructions say nothing and I haven't been able to find anything ****** either. The manufacturer is Forecast Lighting.

    If you have an ohm meter you might check to see where there is continuity to that wire on the fixture.
