Something doesn't sound right here. The 5611 series products list themselves as being single-pole products with screw terminals - and you're describing what sounds like a three-way device with wire leads. It almost sounds like the wrong product was put in the box. Regardless...

First of all, I want to make sure that we're replacing a light switch. I am assuming that the two wires are the hot feed, and the switched-hot return to the light fixture. I dont' want to rule out the posssibliity that if, say, a receptacle used to occupy this box, the white white may actually be a neutral - in which case, installing a switch here will cause a short.

Assuming for the time being that it is a standard 3-way switch, of the three wires on the unit, one should be listed as the "common", and the other two as "travellers" - connect the common to one of the two house wires coming from the wall, connect one of the travellers to the other house wire, and place a wire nut on the remaining traveller (unused). If you can't figure out which wire is which, just guess and if it doesn't work, try a different wire combimation - there's only three possible ways to wire it and only one of them won't work.

How to wire a leviton 5634 for agarbage disposal


If you are replacing an existing switch, either replace one wire at a time, or write down the wire colors from the old switch.

What model Leviton GFCL should I use? My wire is a 600 volt 12/2 with ground. Said wire feeds other GFCL outlets.


Any off-the-shelf GFCI sold today with work on 12-2 wire:
By code, 12-2 wire should be connected to 20 amp circuit breaker, but typically most switches and outlets wired to that circuit are rated 15 amp. Amp rating is printed on electrical devices.
Leviton 15 amp 7599-W:

Need more information.
Project is not clearly defined.
Add a comment with clear description of each wire and what Load is being controlled.
Why are you using a 4-way switch? Are you controlling 240Volt circuit?

Photoelectric switch usually has red, black, white wires, and usually replaces a single pole switch but can also be used to control 240Volt circuit in some wiring diagrams.

4-way switch has 4 screw terminals and is generally not used to replace a single-pole photoelectric eye, but can be used to control 240Volt circuit in some wiring diagrams, so I'm not sure what you are doing.

The Leviton page for Leviton 5613 does not have a troubleshoot.
Manual shows simple wiring diagram.
3-way switches will not operate lights if switches are wired incorrectly.
Check your ground wire is connected.
Leviton 5613 series is illuminated.
Check that both switches have 5613 number.
Swap switches and see if problem is inside switch.

I am trying to replace a two wire light switch(both white) with a leviton photoelectric 3 wire motion activated light control(red, black and green). I am trying to determine which wire goes to which?


one of the white wires has power on it constantly....that wire connects to the black wire of the leviton.......the other white wire which has no power to it is going to whatever needs power so that wire connects to the red wire of the leviton....the green wire connects to the metal box where your mounting the leviton.

I have a black and white wire to hook to. leviton has black, blue and white. green also but thats a ground. what do i do with the blue wire? this is a single switch to a gfci then to outside lighting....


The blue wire is the switched hot wire coming from the leviton.
So:
black hot/source to black leviton -- blue leviton to black for light fixture or black "line" on GFI -- all whites connected together.

P.S. If the GFI is only powering a light fixture, it is not needed.
