Diaphramg switch is oozing black liquid, is this a problem?

Does the oozing of black fluid from the plug in portion of the switch mean that the diaphramg switch needs to be replaced?

    Can you get the pump to run at all? Even just by pluging in the motor? If you can I would suggest replacing the switch. Not worth the risk...

Using 12-3/gnd how do I wire 2 gfis with protected outlets downstream?

Need clarification...12-3 means 3wires (usually black, red and white) plus a ground wire. A black white and ground wire is 12-2. Standard GFCI wiring is black to gold (screw) white to silver and ground wire to green. GFCI's have more than one way to be wired but normally come with directions. GFCI's can also be wired in conjunction with standard plugs. There are websites that will also show AC wiring diagrams which may be helpful.

What are the color code of the wires to switch terminals

the black screw is the "common" so the hot wire or the colored wire (usually black or red) bringing power in goes on to the black screw and all white wires (neutral) get connected together. you need to verify which wire has constant power when all wires are disconnected and separated first.

*White wires all connected together separate of the switch
green screw = ground or bare wire
black screw = hot wire/ wire with constant power
silver screws = (switched terminals) black or colored wire from each device being powered (eg. light) per screw

I just replaced a switch/outlet with a 274V and used a circuit tester and got a correct signal on the outlet circuit but the switch light remains on in both the on and off position and my garbage disposal...

First you have to make sure you have the black or hot wire hooked up to the brass screws. That should power both pieces. On the outlet portion the white or common should be on the silver screw. Then the black wire going to the light should be on the other switch screw and the bare or green should be on the green screw

I have a square levition light switch for lamps. what wire do i hook it up to? the black wire or the white?

All new 2 wire cords with an attached plug should be polarized, meaning that one of the prongs is larger than the other, thus preventing you from plugging it into the receptacle improperly. If you look at the male prongs on the plug, the larger spade is the neutral and the smaller spade is the "hot" side. You have to find out which is the "hot conductor" on the cord. The cord is identified with a tracer (either ribbed or legibly mark on one side of one of the conductors . Follow the identifier up to where you want the switch. Cut only the hot conductor leaving the neutral conductor untouched. (DO NOT CUT BOTH CONDUCTORS). You may have to trim the hot conductor back a little to fit into the molded channel of the switch. reassemble the switch. the unit is equipped with insulation displacement blades that will puncture the insulation thus making contact with the conductors.

The black to switch is broken at switch-----source is from light ---no neutral can I connect a combination switch ? ----light controlled with toggle ---plug hot all the time. ...

If I understand correctly you want to replace a switch with a switch-plug combo?
A switch-plug combo requires a neutral wire on the silver screw.
The black hot wire from breaker goes to the dark-colored screw.
The black wire going to switch goes to gold-colored screw.

If this is not correct and you want more help, add a comment.

I want to fit a light and switch into my new workshop. I have a garage type consummer unit fitted and am not sure how to wire in the light.

I answer questions for free.
I know electric wiring.
However I might not understand your problem.
If I do not understand your problem, add a comment with more information and I will respond.

If I understand correctly you want to add a new switch and a new light in your garage.
And you are starting from scratch with no knowledge.
You are starting with a blank wall.

I do not know what a consummer unit is.
Is that a type of light?

Here's a sketch of the project:
We need an electrical receptacle or wall-plug so we can get electricity.
We need to run a cable from the electrical wall-plug to the switch.
This will bring electricity to your switch.
And then we need to run a cable to the light.

Let's talk about how you get electricity from the wall-plug.
The wall plug has a black and white wire connected to each side.
Your cable has a black and white wire.
You connect your black wire with the black side.
Connect white to the white side.

Now run the cable to your switch.
The cable arrives at the switch.
The cable has a black and white wire.
The switch is wired differently than the wall-plug.
On the switch you connect one black wire.
But the white is not connected to switch.

Now we're ready for the cable going to the light.
The cable to the light has a black and white wire.
Connect the black to the switch.
So now you have 2 black wires connected to the switch.
The black wires are on different screws.
And then connect the two white wires together.

So the switch is wired.
Run the cable to your light.
The cable arrives at the light.
The cable still has a black and a white wire.
Your light will have wires -or- it will have screws.

If light has black and white wires, then connect black to black and white to white.

If your switch has screws, then connect black to brass-screw and white to silver-screw.

I have a 1595-SWTTRWCC4 switch. None of the wiring diagrams show the two black wires coming from the switch. I am using the switch to turn on a light above the sink and use the outlet for counter top...

If the wires are coming out of the switch portion & not the outlet, 1 goes to power the other goes to that color wire that goes to your light. All you are doing with a switch is cutting one side of your power, putting switch in completes the circuit when it is turned on. Or breaks the circuit when it is turned off. The other wires, power in & back to light get wire nutted together.

We have a maglite that holds 5 or 6 D batteries and some liquid in rubber has now caused the on/off switch to no longer work. Is there something that can be done?

You could leave the torch in the cupboard near the hot water tank for a few days and the switch might dry out .The contacts have probably corroded at this stage though

After installing a new sliding dimmer switch -- the dimming portion seems to work fine, however the off portion when slid down does not turn off lights?

It sounds as though the switch is faulty. Try replacing it and see if that does it. Hope this helps. Good luck.
