As you will probably have noticed, it's been pretty hot recently, so I've bought a ceiling fan under the assumption that I'd somehow be able to blunder through and attach it without killing myself or blowing anything up.
After removing the old light and staring at it for a bit, it's become evident that I've got no idea what I'm doing, so if anyone can tell me what goes where, that would be great.
Diag 1. The existing ceiling wiring:
I've got as far as working out that I've got a loop in pair and a loop out pair, and another pair of wires that go to the switch (as identified by the red-sleeved black wire), and obviously the earth. The live and neutral wires from the old light went into the holes at either extreme of this block.
Diag 2. The terminal block for the ceiling fan
Er, stuff goes in here somehow.
It looks like I've going to have to take down the existing block to fit the fan, so I'm going to be left with all the free wiring from diagram 1 to stick somewhere. From what I can see, I might need another block to pass the loop wiring through, but apart from changing bulbs and fitting a new light switch this is dangerously new territory for me so I could do with some guidance from someone that knows what they're talking about.
