SOURCE: Household wiring

There are 2 3way switches. Usually one end has a wire going to the light, and the other end 3 way switch has the always on power coming in. Between the two switches are 2-wire travellers.

On the actual 3way switches;
2 screws are the same color and the 2-wire travellers go on these. The other screw is a different color -usually black. This screw gets the power on one end, and the switch leg to the light at the other end.

SOURCE: the new switch is 2 layered - the old one isn't 2 layered

you have to find which wire does what on your switch.Its a three speed fan so you should have three wires that go from the switch to the fan,and one wire that goes from the switch to the hot wire from your house.What you need is a continuity tester.The switches common wire connects to the hot wire from the house.To find this wire you use the continuity tester.as you switch the switch the common wire will be either disconnected from all other wires,or it will be connected one at a time to each of the other wires.only the common wire will be connected to more than one other wire from the switch.If you don't know how to use a continuity tester.it is pretty simple.It has two leads that come from it and when you touch the two wires together the tester lights,or buzzes,or it changes a reading on a display,or all three.depends on what kind you have.what your doing is instead of just touching the leads together your doing it through the switch leads,and hence through the switch.anyway after you find the common wire the other three wires connect to the inputs of the fan.You really want to connect the first wire that connects to the common through the switch to the wire that turns the fan on low then the next wire to the medium then the high.It wont blow up or anything if its in the wrong order,but it wont switch from low to medium to high.

Hi
Probably put your family at risk of electricution . By connecting the live cables to earth you have effectivly made all the metal light fittings live. It is amazing that the fuse has not blown, This in itself is dangerous and you should have an electrician look at the wiring.
The correct wiring should be as follows.
Identify cables there should be 2 twin and earth (red black & copper earth) cables and 1 twin red and copper earth. (or 2 single red wires)
connect all copper earth wires suitably sheathed in green/yellow sleeving to earth lug.
Connect 2 black cables to neutral block.
Connect either single red (0r 1 of 2 reds) into live block.
connect remaining 3 reds into loop block.

please remember to turn the power off when you are doing this. the extra cable is probably a looped or joined cable. put it in a connector or solder it with tape and leave it behind the light fitting or in the terminal block. connect the same cables up in the active, neutral and earth. like for like. make certain the power is off when you do this.

Heath-zenith sl-6107 wiring diagram


hi there the wirings colour codes for nz are as follows

OLD WIRING CODE

Green = Earth
Black = Neutral
Red = Phase Or Live

NEW WIRING CODE

Green/Yellow = Earth
Blue = Neutral
Brown = Phase or Live

============DANGER 230VOLT ===============

Electricity can kill.
You should use an Electrical contractor for this repair job,
Caution always turn off power first before touching any wiring,

The Live wires always carry power,from one point to another,
the black neutral is your return path from the live phase wire
the green wire is always the ground ,

In this example

the sensor will have four wires as follows

Green = Earth Wire
Black = Neutral
Brown = Phase (incoming supply) 24 hrs
Red = Phase Load (outgoing supply) from sensor to lights triggered

Notice there are to phases in the circuit.Brown and Red
Always treat them as LIVE or Active Power.

Brown will normally be the Live incoming power and
Red will be the load side of the sensor,

Check the brochure supplied by manufactuers or their website to confirm the wiring order is correct before commencing any installs or repairs,

Always Safety first.
Safe a live today and you'll remembered forever.

Keeps blowning tail light fuse


Sounds like you have connected your illumination/park light wire to earth the stereo. try disconnect the black wire from your stereo and reconnect it to a metal earth point on the dash, if this works just tape up (insulate) the wire that was the problem.
This is a common problem when fitting stereos as the illumination wire will go to earth when not switched on.
