Question about Leviton Toggle Touch Dimmer - TGI06-1LB - N/A
I have a defective dimmer switch that is single pole that I need to replace. My previous dimmer had two wires emerging from the switch and I have 9 14 ga wires in the box (3 white, 3 black, and 3 bare). The previous switch had one black wire connected to the white wires.
When I buy a replacement switch it comes with three screws. I understand that ground is the green colored screw and one of the screws should have white connected to it and the other should have black connected to it but, I'm concerned about the number of wires that I need to connect. How should I deal with it?
ALL you really need to worry about is the white and black wire that you hooked up before. The green ground screw is not needed. If you have a bare wire completely bare all the way, you can hook it to the green, but it is not required to work.
The other 2 screws are for the switch. It does not matter which wire goes where, as the switch just puts them together, and takes them apart.
