Thanks in advance for helping out an electrical novice.
I recently needed to take town a 5-arm chandelier in order to repaint. When reinstalling I replaced some clear appliance wire with new 18/2 lamp wire, but nothing works when the circuit is back on.
When using a continuity tester on the bare ends of the new lamp wire I get a faint glow but certainly not as bright as when battery-testing the continuity tester itself.
I'm certain I do not have the wires crossed, but maybe to I need a larger gauge wire?
Also, there is a bare ground inside the chandelier that I was not sure if it would be affected because of the paint (standard Rustoleum metal spray paint).
