I am replacing a hanging light fixture. The wires from the box are one black, one white, and one ground (all makes sense). The problem I am having is that the new light fixture only has one black, and one black&white wire. There does not appear to be any ground wire. How do I wire this fixture?. The light fixture is new and the house is only 5 yrs old. I do not have any directions because I bought the display fixture from the store.

Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

If the ceiling outlet-box is metal, then the bare Gnd.-wire is "bonded" to the box, usualy with a 10/32" machine-screw into a tap in the box.

If the box is plastic, drill a hole is the fixture-frame and N&B the Gnd-wire to the frame.

Good Luck & Enjoy the experience!!!!!!!!!!!!!
