Question about Electrical Supplies
I have a leviton 3-way light switch where there are two switches on one unit.
I have two different lights working from this unit: an entry way light and a stairway light.
The entry way light is worked from the bottom toggle along with another hallway switch from a separate unit. The stairway light is working from this same double stacked three way, top toggle and another three way upstairs.
I took the old switch out, not sure what it was, and replaced it with this leviton. I wired it exactly the way the old switch was wired.
I have two whites that I put on the right side, dark screws, two reds that I put on the left side, screw 1& 4 and 2 blaks that I also put on the left side, screw 2 & 3.
And a ground on the green screw.
Now depending on how the individual hallway and stairway switches are turned on determines which light the double toggle turns on. Sometimes the bottom switch turns on the center hallway litght and sometimes it turns on the stairway light.
I threw out the directions because I thought it was a no brainer... Probaly for you, not for me.
Any help will be appreciate.
Im not sure if you know what you got yourself into but i hope this helps. Sorry for all the words but this does take some reading if this is new to you.
