In Response To: Halogen Lamp Change (M. Jenkins)

No. If your house is fairly new, the wires will be color-coded white (neutral,) black (live) and bare copper or green for grounding. Cut off the power to the lamp, remove the halogen lamp, and reconnect the new lamp. Follow the wiring instruction. The terminal of most fluorescent lights are polarized. You have to connect the black wire to the black wire and the white wire to the white wire. Light fixtures for fluorescent lights must also be grounded otherwise the light may not start. Ungrounded polarized light fixtures may cause an electrical fire.
