    1. Learn how lighting circuits work and how ceiling roses are wired:

    2. Turn off the power and check for dead with a proper 2-pole tester, not a neon screwdriver or volt stick.
    3. Remove the old light - before disconnecting mark cables and make a careful note of what goes where. If you don't, and you get them mixed up, you'll be in a world of pain.
    4. See what repair work is needed to the ceiling, if any, either for cosmetic reasons or to allow a rose to be physically fixed, and do it.
    5. Install and connect the new rose.
    6. Carry out circuit tests for insulation resistance, cpc continuity and fault loop resistance.
