What is the load wire for on a x10 switch

It is AC therefore it doesn't matter, they need current to operate, about 5-8 watts per switch. It may be more cost effective to use LED lights and leave them on. I have problems with LED lights in the X10 because they do not use enough current.

Legrand adorne paddle 3 pole switch won't turn on

You need to have 2 two way switches in a circuit like that. If you dont have them in each place then it will not work. If you did have a two way in each spot then when you put the new switch in, there is a chance that you wired it wrong. How many wires are in that box that you put the switch in?

3 Pole light switch won't turn on

Verify your wiring on the switch to make sure that you stripped them to the correct length and that they are fully inserted and tightened down. Also check that you put the correct wire in the correct terminal. The terminal marked HOT will have the either the 120 volt power coming from the breaker or the 120 volt switch leg going to the light fixture, depending on which of your 3-way switches is fed from the breaker. The terminals marked 1-pole and 3-way should have your traveler wires connected to them. Check the switch that you did not replace to see which two wires were used as the travelers, they will be the ones on the screws of the same color. The odd colored screw is the hot or switch leg, depending on which end of the circuit it is on (on the breaker side, it is the hot wire, on the light fixture side of the circuit, it is the switch leg.)

My timer manual switch works,it turns the outside lights on and off. However the automatic dial,even when plled out and set to time to operate does not work.What 's going on? Isit me?

The two tabs are for On ad OFF.
One is slightly longer than the other. If the OFF tab is in the ON location, it won't work, it'll just click past the time and not flip the paddle to ON.

Try this, turn the dial (NOT pulled out) around slowly and see if it flips the paddle to ON. Keep turning it, slowly, and see if it flips to OFF.
If it works while you're "helping it" then it should work automatically. If it doesn't, maybe the gear is damaged and it can't move past a certain point.

Does the time move? Do you hear the motor running? I've seen the motors go bad. The manual flipping will work then, but the motor isn't running the clock around.

Night light in lutron wall switch flashing can it be fixed and how

Unfortunately, no. Its a neon bulb that gets soldered into the product, so its not something that can be tweaked or replaced. My suggestion would be to call their tech support number 1-800-523-9466, and see if you can get them to replace the whole dimmer.

I cut the plastic wiring connector, fan motor to to light kit, from a Harbor Breeze paddle fan. This connector had a short in it, and I wanted to hard wire around this connector. I reconnected all of the...

The top wires, black, white, and green are the ones to hook to just run the fan. The blue wire is wired with the black at the top if you want the lights to work. At the light kit, the blue and white wires power the lights.

Help me identify Relay Wall Switch

Good Morning
First - I am not a certified electrician but in my 78 years young of dealing with electrical problems sounds like you have three way switch similar to a light switch used on one end of a hallway or bottom of the stairwell with another switch located at the top.
Why they used a 10 amp switch issomething I can't explain other than was the only switch of that STYLE or CLASS.
The relay looks like a relay we used to use in the hospital to control lights from a patientscontrol cnter at the head of the bed and that I believ was manufactured by GE only theose were either 12 or 24 volt coil. the GE had different styles ro circuits.
Have a good Day
