Question about Gardner Bender #GSW-SK Door Switch
Just installed a Gardner Bender SPST Switch Kit (GSW-SK) for my coat closet so the light comes on when the door is opened. Went to reset the breaker but it won't. Clearly something is wrong. I have two cables entering the metal switch box, one from the source, the other to the light. The GB switch itself has only two wires, which I connected one to the other two whites, the other to the other two blacks. I connected the two ground wires to the back of the metal box with the screw provided. Does anyone see anything wrong with this hook up? I was surprised the switch didn't come with a ground wire... Thanks.
Leave the original whites connected together, connect the new switch in series with the two black wires (one black to the top of the switch, the other to the bottom),
p.s. the switch is grounded through the mounting strap
