Shut off the circuit breaker before proceeding. Do not rely on the wall switch to remove power.

Cap off the black wire from the ceiling. Make sure it is electrically isolated, since it is hot.

Connect the new fixture's two black wires to the red wire from the ceiling. Connect the fixture's two white wires to the white wire from the ceiling. Connect the grounding wire from the fixture to the grounding wire from the ceiling.
