You would get power to your switch from another light switch. They would be all on the same circuit. Run more wire from another light switch to your new switch.

Installed light fixture & Now No Light


It would be helpful to know which timer you have. But from what you mention, there is another switch involved. Was this on a three-way circuit? That is, was this light controlled by two separate switches? In that case, you need to know which wire goes to the live and which to the light. Not easy without a tester.

Other than that, send us the switch make and model number and we can look at the wiring diagram. Cheers.

My house fuse box is fitted with a master RCD. A feed off a lounge socket goes threw the wall and feeds an external weather proof RCD box which when switched supplies my garden lights. If a garden light...


Appears the main box RCD is just as fast as the secondary RCD and it sensed the same fault that triggered the outside unit and it didn't wait around to see if that outside unit did the job.

Light switch wiring


Yes.
The code is maximum 12 boxes per circuit breaker.
You can connect a 12-2 NM W/G cable to one of the outlets. Black-to-black and white-to-white and ground-to-ground. Black is hot, white is neutral, and ground is ground. And bring that cable into a hollow-wall box you install 50" high on the wall. Then run the 12-2 cable up to your light fixture.

http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-switches.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/OWB1.html

You can also replace one of the outlets with a combo switch-outlet. The run singe 12-2 cable up to light.
This wiring diagram shows half way down how-to-wire-switches page.
Outlets have wide blade on neutral side, and narrow blade on hot side.
The black hot wires from old outlet connect to side of combo device with narrow blade.
The white neutrals from old outlet, and new wire going to switch, all connect to silver screw on wide-blade side of new combo device.
The black wire going to new light connects to screw next to switch located on wide-blade side of device.

Im trying to install a a new ljy260 in may fan but I dont know which wire fo where


The black is the hot line, white is neutral, and blue is for the light. If the fan and the light are on separate switches at the wall, the black goes to the hot lead from the on/off switch and the blue goes to the hot lead from the light switch. If you are using the pull chains to operate the fan and the light once the wall switch is "ON", then the black (fan) and the blue (light kit) wires are connected together and tied to the hot from the wall switch.
Hope that this helps you.

Best regards, --W/D--

I need a diagram to install a Westinghouse 3-way light switch (#77052) on a lighting fixture on the bottom of a ceiling fan. I did not do the removal of the light fixture so I don't know how it was wired...


If by a 3-way switch, you mean a switch with 4 steps of brilliance: off, low, medium, and high when used with a 3-way bulb. The black wire of the switch is connected to incoming power wiring hot wire. Most often also black. The red switch wire connects to the center contact of the lamp socket. The blue wire connects to the small pin connection that is physically between the center connection and the screw shell of the lamp socket. The screw shell is connected to the incoming white wire of the house wiring.

I want to fit a light and switch into my new workshop. I have a garage type consummer unit fitted and am not sure how to wire in the light.


I answer questions for free.
I know electric wiring.
However I might not understand your problem.
If I do not understand your problem, add a comment with more information and I will respond.

If I understand correctly you want to add a new switch and a new light in your garage.
And you are starting from scratch with no knowledge.
You are starting with a blank wall.

I do not know what a consummer unit is.
Is that a type of light?

Here's a sketch of the project:
We need an electrical receptacle or wall-plug so we can get electricity.
We need to run a cable from the electrical wall-plug to the switch.
This will bring electricity to your switch.
And then we need to run a cable to the light.

Let's talk about how you get electricity from the wall-plug.
The wall plug has a black and white wire connected to each side.
Your cable has a black and white wire.
You connect your black wire with the black side.
Connect white to the white side.

Now run the cable to your switch.
The cable arrives at the switch.
The cable has a black and white wire.
The switch is wired differently than the wall-plug.
On the switch you connect one black wire.
But the white is not connected to switch.

Now we're ready for the cable going to the light.
The cable to the light has a black and white wire.
Connect the black to the switch.
So now you have 2 black wires connected to the switch.
The black wires are on different screws.
And then connect the two white wires together.

So the switch is wired.
Run the cable to your light.
The cable arrives at the light.
The cable still has a black and a white wire.
Your light will have wires -or- it will have screws.

If light has black and white wires, then connect black to black and white to white.

If your switch has screws, then connect black to brass-screw and white to silver-screw.

I have three house wires supplied- white, red, and


make sure power is off before working on the fan wiring ..(trip circuit breaker)

here is what the house wires are
1. black is hot (power) all the time .. its normally connected to the black wire of the fans speed control switch .. that is normally operated by a pull chain ..

2. red is the same power as black except it comes from a wall switch .. this would be connected to the blue wire in the fan (that goes to its light) .. that will allow you to turn the light on an off from the wall switch ..

3. white is neutral .. it connects to both white wires inside the fan .. one goes to the fan the other goes to the light. .. if there is more than one light bulb then there will be more white wires .. hook them all together and to the white house wiring ..

4 then there is safety ground .. usually green or bare copper ... that is connnected to either a green wire inside the fan or bolted to the metal of the fan (often a green bolt is provided) .. the green wire is not required for the fan to run but is required as a safety to make sure no one gets shocked on the fans metal parts ..

after you wire the fan ..then turn on the wall switch .. if the light doesnt light then pull its pull chain until it does .. you can then tie up or remove that chain to prevent anyone from changing that position since you can now control the light from the wall switch you dont need that chain anymore .. the fan should come on slow med and high then off .. each time you pull its chain ..

Should a twoway room fixture actually be a three way ?!?!


The leviton 5603 switch described in the header is a three way wall switch.
I think what you are asking about is what electricians refer to as a "three way switch"
This is basically one outlet or device connected to two wall switches. 1) switch, 2) outlet or light fixture, and 3) another wall switch, three components, thus a three way switch. Installing or converting a fixture or outlet from standard to three way is something i would recommend contracting out to a licensed electrician. Unless you are really comfortable with electrical work.
It is a possibility that your wall outlets are already set up to be a three way switch. A lot of houses have this feature especially at the top and bottom of a stairway, depending on when your house was built. If it is not already configured it could mean stringing new wire behind the drywall which most often means tearing some of the drywall out so that it can be stapled to the studs and meet required building codes.
If, before the changes were made, you were able to turn on the light from either of the wall switches then you will only need to connect the wiring correctly at each of the components.
If you google 3-way switch you will find a ton of great info and wiring diagrams that will help you see exactly what goes into making them work, since they can be wired more than one way. It could help you decide whether or not it is a job you want to tackle on your own or if you want to hire a contractor.
Let me know if I didn't explain something clearly.

Trip the breaker and verify that the fan/light will not operate. If tripping the breaker kills the circuit and flipping the wall switch would not, the switch is probably bypassed. Place the wall switch to "off" with the breaker tripped to the "off" position as well. Gain access to your wiring connections at the fan. Look for a single (black) wire that is not connected. This should be your hot return from the wall switch Make your fan/light connections to this wire. (Are you sure that the ground wire that you connected is a ground? If it is, it should be bare copper with no insulation). Your white (neutral) connection to the three white wires should be fine. If you don't find a single wire in the ceiling box, call on an electrician. Regards --WoobieDog--
