If you had four wires, and your dimmer only has three, then it's not going to work. Your existing switch is often called a 4-way (in the US anyway). It is used in between two or more other three way switches. If you have only two switches, they can both be 3 ways (using only three wires). Additional switches have to be 4-ways (using four wires). An option is to use your dimmer at the first or last switch location. But if you want the dimmer at your chosen location, you need a 4-way dimmer. By the way, you can use a 4-way switch in a 3-way situation, by not using one of the terminals on the switch. Please vote if you found this helpful good luck Al K

Need a wiring diagram for 696 seriess switch

You don't need a wiring diagram.
The screws tell the story.

On one side of device has 2 screws.
On other side has 2 screws.
Green screw is for bare ground wire.

1) One side will have dark screws and the other side will have brass screws. The dark screws will be connected together with a brass plate. The brass screws will be separate.
2) One side will have brass screws and the other side will have silver screws. The brass screws will be connected together with a brass plate. The silver screws will be separate.

#1 Hot from breaker connects to dark screw. Wires to Load (light,fan) connect to brass screws.
#2 Hot from breaker connects to brass screw. Wires to Load (light, fan) connect to silver screws.
