Single pole switch, one black wire, one white wire and a ground controls two the bottom half of two different outlets. I replaced the old recepticals and didn't,t pay attention to how they were wired


It doesn't matter how the receptacles are wired it is AC, The switch should just be in the line between the source and the outlet and when turned off open the circuit. Use a voltage tester to see if power is coming into the switch. If power is coming in and not going out then you have a faulty switch.Recheck the wires going to the receptials and make sure one has not come loose.

DISCLAIMER:Attempting to work on house electrical systems without proper training is DANGEROUS and you stand the risk of dying.


The Cooper 7729w is a three pole single throw switch with a common (connected) hot wire that supplies it. What you had before was two separate single pole single throw switches and one single pole double throw switch that is used as a three way. The short answer is NO that replacement will not work UNLESS you don't want the other switch on the other side of the room to work.


Personally, I think that if you really need to ask this question you need to seek the advice of a professional electrician.

Wiring is suspect.
Black hot wire connects to dark screws.
Break off tab should be intact.
White neutral wire connects to silver screw.
Wire going to switch load connects to brass screw.

No it means you have a short somewhere in the wireing. disconnect the power unhook the switches and use an ohm meter to test the wires to see if you have contact between the wires, black to white and black to bare ground wire. if it's a three way wire test all of them, if you used tsaoles to hold it in place check where you put the staples in you may find you have a staple ran threw two wires. Or if you pulled the wire and pulled it around a hard corner you may have pulled the insolation off somewhere the above test will confirm this. This is assumeming you are testing line voltage without a step down transformer or any other device in the circut

I have a live 2-wire line that used to be connected to a light with a switch built into the light fixture. I removed the fixture and put wire nuts on the live wire. What I'm trying to do is to wire the 2...


As I understand it you have a live circuit going to a light fixture that had a switch built into it. You have removed the fixture and now you want to run this wire to another location and install a switch in the circuit.

You will be extinding these two wires (white and black + ground) to the new location. No problem ... Somewhere between where you start and where you finish, you will break the black wire and install a single pole switch. All connecctions must happen inside a electrical box.

So, install the new wire in the box where you will start your extension. Run to the new switch box. You dont even have to cut the white wire. You will wrap the green or ground around the ground screw on the switch, Cut the black wire . put one end under one side screw, put the other end under the other side screw. From this box run your wire to the next box where you will install your fixture.

If you are using metal boxes, they must be grounded to the circuit. You can use pig tails for this, Best deal is to use plastic boxes that dont require grounding.

I hope this answers your question

Hooking up a combination switch with outlet and another switch


ok, i think what you mean is a 3-way switch- meaning two different switches that control one light and a single (pole) switch that only controls one light. you can't do that with the above switch. You need a combination 3-way and single pole switch.
