Question about Alert Light Switches & Dimmers
Lamp has two bulbs one at the top and one at the base, they work off the same switch the bottom bulb has two wires one black and one white that runs up to the other bulb and switch. I need to know where these two wires get wired on the switch,and the wires to the new cord there's three connections.
From one side of the lamp cord, to one side of the switch.
From other side of switch to both blacks from the upper and lower bulbs.
From other side of lamp cord, to the white coming from both bulbs.
This assumes there is a black and white wire coming from both bulbs.
Please note, look at the lamp cord closely, particularly the plug. If one prong is wider than the other, then the plug is polarized, and you need to pay special attention to the wires leading out of the plug. One of the two will be ribbed, the other smooth. Note which is on the same side of the plug as the wide prong. Whichever is with the wide prong, should NOT connect to the switch, but to the whites coming from the bulbs.
