Question about Pass & Seymour #696LAGCC6 15A Almond 3WY Switch

1 Answer

Where is the breakoff tab. Is it between the black and brass screws

I am replacing a separate dual lite switch that has a 1-way and 3-way attached to it. It looks like 2 modular units on the same bar.

SOURCE: I am changing a 3way switch in the garage. I have

If you are replacing a three way switch with a three way switch, you should only use the wires that were connected to the old switch. (Unfortunately the color coding of these wires is not universal.) Assuming you have only 2 switches, that means you only need to connect 3 wires to the switch (in addition to the ground). One wire (to be connected alone on either side of the top or bottom of the switch) either comes from the electric panel or goes to the light fixture. The other two wires (both at the top or bottom of the switch) are the "travelers" and go directly to the other switch. You can examine the other switch (the one you aren't working on) to confirm which two wires are your travelers. I hope this helps. Good luck!

Thank you for the clear description of your P&S device.
You need to test your wires.
We are looking for the Hot, Neutral and Load wires.

Your old switch has two wires.
One of these wires is the Hot (I suspect 100% that the wire that comes from the other wires that are twisted together is the Hot)
The other is Load

Separate the old switch wires and turn on power.
Use ordinary tester.
Test each wire to metal box and see if the box is grounded.
Tester will light up on Hot wire.
You can also test each of the old switch wires to the other wires in the box.

1) Hot: Once you determine the Hot wire, this wire will connect to the P&S device:
Hot connects to the brass screws on right side, just as you said ... and these screws are on opposite side from silver screw.

2) Load: The wire to Load connects to brass screw on top left, which is on same side of device as silver screw. This screw sits opposite the P&S switch.

The last wire is the Neutral.
Test your Hot wire to all other wires in the box.
When the tester lights up, that is the Neutral

3) Neutral connects to silver screw which will complete the circuit to the P&S receptacle.

SOURCE: I am attempting to replace

Connect a black and red from the same _cable_ (pick a set, it doesn't matter which cable as long as both wires are from the same cable.), to the top two screws, again,it doesn't matter which wires are connected to which screw, as long as both are connected to the top screws. Connect the other black and red from the remaining _cable_ to the two bottom screws, again, it doesn't matter which wire goes to which screw, as long as they are from the _same_ cable_. There should be two white wires in that box also, one from each cable. Just twist the two white wires together with a wire nut.

Testimonial: "Very helpful - thank you for your quick response!"

SOURCE: Have switch 691-WCC6.

Question is posted under switch, but asks about outlet.
Outlet is where you plug extension cord for example.

Usually screws are color-coded.
Outlets have brass and silver screws.
Without testing wires, trying hooking wires to same color screw they came from.
If breaker blows, then take off one wire and try again, or test wires to see what each is connected to.
As general rule with newer wiring inside outlet box, code says Black wires are Hot and go to brass screws, White wires are neutral and go to silver screws.
Older wiring could be very different especially if wiring was not done by code.
Use cheap circuit analyzer from home center to help diagnose outlet problems.

Add a comment with photo of your old wiring device, plus wiring.

I need to replace the oil sending unit on my 2008 Pontiac G6 as it is leaking oil, but am having trouble determining the right part #. Is there an oil sending switch AND a separate oil sending unit?


there should be a sender unit with one wire attached that is connected to the oil light or gauge and there possible is a oil pressure sensor switch with 2 or more wires attached that reports to the ECM unit that shuts the motor down when the oil pressure is insufficient
take it to a service center and have it identified

1 brake light doesn't work... good bulb and fuse


Lights are usually on a dual circuit! Left and right have separate fuses, check all fuses or check the fuse diagram on fuse cover or manual to identify correct fuse!

My cyclops only shows 1/2 the beam the rest is dark area


That's normal, its high and low. Just like your car headlights dual filimanets avoid the need for 2 separate bulbs/lights. As long as one comes on/off separate and then the unit turns off its working fine unless the manual says they are supposed to turn on at the same time but I doubt it.

Hi there, we have replaced dual infinite switch on our jennair range and cannot figure out the correct wiring for the new 12002125 switch....can you help...???


Follow the instructions below from partselect:

Attach the black wire(s) from the old switch (terminal 2) to the new switch terminal P1. Also attach the jumper cable to P1 and "jump" it to S1.

Attach the orange wire (old switch terminal 5) to S2
Attach the yellow wire (old switch terminal 4) to 4a
Attach the tan/(white?) wire (old switch terminal 3) to terminal 4 on the new switch
Attach the single red wire from the right front element to terminal 2 on the new switch.
Attach the 'compound' red wires (the ones that come from the left rear/outlet connection and is also attached to the right rear switch) to terminal P2 on the new switch.
There is no need to separate the compound red wires.

Ice maker won't shut off when full


check the Shutoff Arm:

An arm extends away from the ice maker over the ice cube bin. During each ice making cycle, the arm rises up and then drops back down after the new ice is dumped into the ice cube bin. As ice accumulates in the bin it prevents the arm from dropping back down. When the arm is high enough, the ice maker shuts off and no more ice is made until the ice level in the bin drops.
The ice maker can also be turned off manually by lifting the arm all the way up into a locked position (shown belowef280e4.jpg

The arm is supported at one or both ends. One end extends into the back of the front support (see photo above). If it is not securely in place, it could cause the ice maker to malfunction. Confirm that the arm is securely in place.
For proper operation, confirm that arm is in the lowered position and that nothing is blocking it from normal movement.
To test the shutoff function, lift the arm up into the manual shutoff position. Recheck the unit later to confirm that no ice is being made.
If unit continues making ice even when the shutoff arm is in the up (off) position, refer to the diagnostic table or for a modular ice maker, replace the control module.

check the Shutoff Switch:

Before testing the shutoff switch, unplug the refrigerator to avoid an electrical shock hazard.
There are two types of ice makers, those in which all of the parts can be individually replaced and those in which some of the parts are clustered together into a control module. To determine which model you have remove the outer face plate. If there is knob, pull it off first, then pry off the face plate with a small screwdriver.

Modular units have holes in the module's face plate for test probes. If you see several holes, each marked with a letter, it is a modular unit. Component units (like the one shown below) usually have exposed gears and don't have holes for test probes.
Modular units do not use a separate shutoff switch. Instead follow this link to view instructions for checking the shut off arm.

Here is what you need. The regular phone has a small (1 inch by 1/4 inch) plug, under the plastic base. That Serial connection will plug directly into the botton of the expansion unit you need to attach. The regular phone runs off of 2 wires (Normally white blue, blue white) And then the buttons will need to be proammed within the system.
