The battery operated switch sends a wireless signal to the "box with wires," which takes the place of an ordinary light switch.
Turn off power, remove existing wall switch, and wire as follows:
Using wire nuts, connect "O--O", "A--A", "B--B". Both 'wireless' and 'receiver' now act as 3-way switches.

House wireing red,white,black. how do i hook up a cealingfan with light kit pull chain on.


For starters, look at the wall switch. Are there two switches? If so, connect the black wire from the ceiling box to the black wire from the fan. Connect the red wire from the ceiling box to the blue wire from the fan. Connect white to white. At the fan, usually the black wire goes to the fan and the blue wire goes the the light.

If there is only one wall switch, you may or may not want to install a double switch so the fan and light can be controlled separately. If there is only one wall switch, most people just connect the wire connected to that switch (usually the black) to both the black and blue from the fan, not using the red at all. In that scenario both the light and the fan are switch at the fan as needed after the wall switch is operated.

Installing the extra red wire is not usual practice, someone actually was planning for future use and convenience.

Adam05@telus.netI have wired the 4-way switch with a 3-way switch at either end of the cct as noted on the instructions but the lights only operate from either if the 3-way switches. once the 4-way switch...


You've got your connections mixed up somehow. It happens. The neutral seems to be OK, otherwise the lights would not work at all.

Here's what you want to double check: At the 3-way switch box that contains the source, the hot (black) wire from the source is connected to the "odd" screw on the 3-way switch. The cable that goes to the next switch (the 4-way) should have a white, black, and red. The black and red connect to the 2 screws of the same color on the 3-way switch. The neutrals, of course are just twisted together with a wire nut.

In the next switch box (the 4-way), and this is where I think you may have made the mistake,
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 wires from the same cable 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.

Of course, at the last switch (3-way) the "odd" screw on the 3-way switch should be connected to the (black) switch leg going to the light and the black and red (that are in the same cable coming from the 4-way switch) are connected to the 2 screws of the same color on the switch. The white wires just twisted together with a wire nut.

Again, take the time to double check your connections. Everyone makes mistakes.

I have a box with a red, white, and black 14 gauge wire coming in to it. Only the black is hot. I have a single pole dimmer switch with two blacks and a green (I assume a ground). When I wire the two...


I am assuming that this is original wiring in this box. As an electrician, I look at these wires in this manner. There are 3 wires, this is either a 3 way switch, a cable that is used with a light switch as well as passing power on to another box. This is how I see this problem with the information in the question. The black being hot, white as neutral, and the red as a return lead for a light. This is how I am looking at this as a switch feed. If you connect the black and red together, do you have the light come on? If so, then this is the correct two feeds for the light switch. The dimmer should be connected between these two wires. I am not sure if connecting between the black and white burnt out your dimmer, so I mention connecting the black and red to test for the light operation. You can also check in the light box itself, and determine which wires are connected to the light from the switch. I hope this helps. Joe

I need help hooking up my bathroom fan and light i have three wires going to the bathroom fan and light white black and ground i want a swith to turn off the bathroom light one to run the light to the fan...


Right now a single switch turns on both light and fan.
You want to put in a double switch to control light and fan separately.

But the problem is there is not a separate wire to each the light and fan.
You need a separate wire to each, but the circuit wasn't wired that way.
Usually when the circuit is wired for separate control, there is a red wire that also goes to ceiling box.

Unless you run another wire to the ceiling box, it won't be possible to control light and fan separately.

Electrician can do this pretty easily if there is attic space above bathroom.

My girlfriend has a leviton illumatech IP106 that keeps "not working". after a number of months. It is operarting a standard dining room 6 light chandelier. A couple of her friends have replaced this in...


As a general rule for timers and dimmers:

The Black dimmer wire connects to black hot wire coming from breaker (122V line)
The red dimmer wire connects to Load (wire going to chandelier)

The wall red wire that is capped could be a couple different things. a) It could go to a second switch that was used to control the chandelier. b) it could be another wire that goes to same ceiling box as chandelier to be used to control a fan, except you don't have a fan. In the second case, if you install a fan with a light, you could control fan and light separately.

The green is a ground wire that connects to bare copper wire in box. The bare copper connect back to main breaker box on the Neutral busbar.
White wires that are twisted together inside your light switch box also connect back to to main breaker box on the Neutral busbar.
The ground wire and neutral are a redundant safety system to protect you from electrical devices and appliances that have 'shorted'
The black hot wire connects back to the circuit breaker.

For example, each circuit breaker controls one area of household lighting. The black white and copper wires leave breaker box in a single romex cable. The romex travels to a junction box in the area where the lights are located. The junction box is usually a switch box or a ceiling box. From the junction box, the romex travels to each other switch, light and receptacle box in the area. So each box has 1 hot and 1 neutral and 1 ground that is connected in a line that leads back to breaker box.

Here's a couple pages that make home wiring easier to understand:

Connecting a Heath Zenith Doorbell 172C-A


Do you have a transformer with it? Apparently this doorbell can operate on AC or DC (3-6VDC or 8-16VAC). The usual method is to supply 110 VAC to a transformer with an output of about 16VAC. ------ BE SURE YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING WHEN DEALING WITH 110VAC. HAVE A CAPABLE ADULT HELP YOU WITH THIS! ------- Connect one of the two outputs from the transformer to one of the terminals on the bell (this might be labeled COMMON) The other output from the transformer will go to your handheld lead (like in the Operation game). Connect a lead from your patient (as in the Operations game) to a terminal on the bell which is probably labeled for AC.

power coming in from the breaker box: black wire will go to line-hot screw, and the white wire will go to the line-white screw. the switch wires coming out of the back of the gfci- 1 will go to the load-hot screw & the other black wire will wire nut to the black wire going to the light. the white wire going to the light must go to the load-white screw.

Heath Zenith Security Light fixture with motion stopped working.


I am in the middle of a discussion with Heath/Zenith over a closely related and perhaps identical issue. I purchased their 5718 model from Home Depot and based on the fact that their brochure stated that "CFL bulbs are only usable on 270 degree units." I purchased the model 5718 unit (270 degree) and used CFL bulbs. It experienced the same problem others noted.

The technician at Heath/Zenith told me that only DIMMABLE CFL bulbs would work with this unit (even if the DualBrite feature is turned off). Standard CFL bulbs will not work.

Their brochure does not make that clear. Perhaps that is the answer to others' problems.
