You're right, green goes to ground.
Black wire connects to Hot wire from breaker box
Red goes to Load (fan, light, motor)

Ok which wire on the switch goes to the Load?
And which goes to Hot from breaker box?

You can test or you can simply hook up the device. If it doesn't work, swap the two wires.
It just won't work until the 2 wires are correct.

I work with timers and electrical devices.

If I understand correctly you replaced a 3-way switch.
The new switch has 3 screws (plus green ground screw)
You put the Hot wire on the dark screw correctly.
You attached the two travelers to the brass-colored screws.
The two travelers are red and white.
You connected the ground wire to the green screw.
The ground wire is not supposed to be connected to with the white wire, and I doubt it is because that would trip the breaker.
The lights are working correctly.

If you followed the formula above to the letter, then the lighted switch should light up.
My best guess at this point is that the lighted switch is defective.
The Pass and Seymour webpage does not have manuals to look at like Leviton and Lutron products.
As a result I can't pour over a manual and put a magnifying glass on the wiring and wording to see if there is something we've missed.
But it's just not that complicated ... the light switch should light up.

At this point, I suggest you re-read the instructions (just in case?) and then swap the switch for another one ... or get different brand.

The cord that runs to your light contains two wires.
The cord switch interrupts one wire.
The second wire runs uninterrupted between wall plug and light.

The photo below is not the same switch as yours, but it shows how one wire is interrupted and the other wire is uninterrupted.

Which wire do you want to interrupt?
Look at the wall plug.
Is the plug polarized, where one blade of the plug is wider?
If the plug is polarized, then one blade is wide and the other is narrower.
Each blade of the plug feeds one of the two wires going to lamp.
Locate the narrower blade, and the wire that comes from that side of plug.
The narrow-blade wire is the wire you want to interrupt when installing the cord switch.

If the plug is not polarized, then choose one wire.

What does common mean on a dimmer switch


The common wire is usually the white wire. Some switchs are only wired with a hot (black) wire. So not all switchs need a common wire (leg).

Dual receptacles (hot all the time) next to dual rocker switches. One switch controls a light, the other a disposal. I've got three black and one white wire ( ground). The post set up on the rockers...


What are you doing? I can't figure it out.
I think you have a new double rocker switch and you are trying to replace a double toggle switch and you don't know which side to put your wires?
The screws are color coded. Look at the screw colors on old and new switches and follow same pattern.

If this is incorrect, answer back and I will help.

If you are adding another circuit.
That means running a new wire into the box to power another receptacle box, or to switch another light fixture.
If this is the case, the best place to connect any new circuit is the existing receptacle.
Connect new black wire to brass colored screw
Connect new white wire to silver colored screw.

Don't know how to fit the wire into the inside of the switch


Since there are only 2 wires, it doesn't matter which wire goes where. Either way it will work.
