The pull switch can be wired in line at the required position by removing the outer insulation on the cable sufficiently to allow for the intended live conductor to be cut and one end connected the switch in terminal and the other to the out terminal.

Make sure that the cable is not live or connected to the supply in any way while you are working on Please remember to rate this solution.it.

Wiring a 2 gang light switch


Okaaay, but which is the permanent live from the lighting circuit, which is the switched live back to the ceiling light, which is the neutral from the lighting circuit?
You may need to open the ceiling rose to see how the red/yellow/blue are wired.
On the switch the terminals are usually diagonal, ie L on the top matches with L1 and L2 on the bottom. L1 and L2 on the top match with L on the bottom.
So you want permanent live from the lighting circuit to go to L and a short piece of wire linking that to the other L.
One of the L1 is switched live back to the lighting circuit.
Other L1 is switched live to the cabinet light. (Red?)
Presumably you also need to connect the neutral from the lighting circuit to the neutral to the cabinet light. (Black?)

I thought I put the wires from the old switch to the new switch correctly but now the fan does not work. The lights come on but no fan.


The pull chain for fan and the pull chain for lights are wired separately.
If you are talking about a wall switch, add a comment with clear description of old switch and new switch, screw colors on each switch, and color of each wire for possible help.

Open following link possible illustration of your pull-chain fan switch.

Wiring is not fully described: Location of hot wire and neutral wire from breaker box are unknown.
If Hot wire arrives in ceiling box first, the switch box will not have white neutral wires that are twisted together and covered with wire nut. Neutrals will be in ceiling box.

What is known: You are replacing single pole switch attached to one 14-2 wire going to light.
You are replacing light with a fan-light and replacing switch with a 3-pole TM8111 switch.
You have replaced 14-2 wire with 12-3 wire.

TM8111 wiring shows following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/TM8111-switch-wiring-500.jpg
Fan pull-chain wiring shows following link:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Fan-motor-1-344.jpg
Assume neutrals in ceiling box.
Assume Hot wire in ceiling box: Connect 12-3 black wire to black Hot wire. Connect 12-3 white wire to black wire on light. Connect 12-3 red to red wire on fan.
White neutral from fan and white neutral form light connect to other white neutral wires and covered with wire nut.
Wiring at switch:
Black Hot wire from ceiling box connects to A COM terminal.
White wire to ceiling light connects to A SP2
Red wire to fan connects to A SP1

I want to use a TM8111 swithch to control 3 devices. A ceiling fan/light combo, night light and a vanity light. How do I hook it up?


Following image has basic wiring plan.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/TM8111-switch-wiring-500.jpg

Each Load (light-or-fan) has to have separate wire running to switch box.
If night light is plugged into wall outlet, then a new wire will have to be added going to switch box.
Most night lights have built in photo eye, and on-off switch.

Add a comment for more help and include specific wiring and what you have tried so far.

The correct why to wire up a cieling fan


The usuall wiring for a ceiling fan is black to black, white to white , and red house wire to the other fan wire, sometimes blue. If you only have two wires from the ceiling, then it is still white to white and black to black, but add the other fan wire to the black wires ..

The problem is that you need to understand that the red and black wires may not be power and return. The main red line is broken at a point and a new cable run to the light ( red + black) or (blue+ brown) this is merely the switch circuit fore that light. So if you mistake the two points it may be that what you have is red+red to your globe. ( Is that clear?) you would need to find the common black + the red to take power to the Red+black to your new ceiling rose, but breaking the now new red wire somewhere and joining in a new red_+ black that goes down to the switch


Use a power checking device as sometimes in some roses where multiple circuitsw feed fom Black and Black can be live

Ceiling rose nt working


Look for the manufacturer's wiring on line or if the product is still available ask a merchant to permit you to copy the schematic from a similar product as yours. If they want future or continued service to you they will most likely accommodate you.
If that does not work, have a certified electrician look at it to sort out the three black and four earth wires.

Downstairs toilet light switch needs rewiring


Yes, run a black wire from connector (a) to one terminal of your new light fitting if you are installing a metal fitting you will need to connect an earth wire also.

If you are reusing the same pull switch and it is still connected as you describe then the floating end near the light is probably the switched live conductor, so you could connect this to the live terminal of the new light. but be careful it may be live.

Caution always disconnect the power before working on electrical wiring.
