Question about Electric Door Light Switch
I want to add the switch to a lone fluroscent fixture in my shop.
I put one lead to the white and the other to the black.
The fixture turns on but when I pull it off I blow the circuit??
Instead of hooking up in that manner try this! I presume you Have a 14-2 or 12-2 wire either will work depends on cir. At Lt you should have wires for the fixture actually coming from fixture, A feed Hot and Nuetral(white), and the switch loop you added. Take the White from feed and tie to white from fixture. Your Done with those wire wirenut them together. Take the White From Switch loop and Tie it with the Black From feed ( This white is not a Nuetral but now a Hot)Tie together with wirenut. This send hot down to switch, Now Take Black From Switch Loop And connect to Black from Fixture. This completes the circuit, And sends Electric back to Lt. Put switch on the white and black. Your circuit blew becuase your mixed the nuetral with the Hot. I Hope this is clear let me know if you need more help

Blue (Light to Hot) Blue to Black (optional)
Black (Fan to Hot) Black to Black
Green (Ground to Ground) Green to Green
If you do not have a green lead you might see a green screw to attach the ground wire from the house power. The fan has the optional light fixture future connect the blue wire to the black hot wire. If you have the optional light fixture you may want to connect it to a separate switch power.
