Step 1 of 4

Identify ground & neutral wires


Your ground wire will be either green or bare copper; you may have more than one in the junction box.

Your neutral wire will be white and you will likely have more than one in the junction box.

Step 2 of 4

Flip switch to the "off" position



Step 3 of 4

Turn the power on


Identify the appropriate circuit breaker at your panel and flip it to the on position.

Step 4 of 4

Identify "live" wire


Using a non-contact voltage tester, touch each wire to identify the "live" wire; this is your hot-in. The remaining wire is your load.
