Question about Lightolier Ivory Galaxy Slide Dimmer Switch 600w X600-i
I am try to install a new dimmer switch. When I removed the old switch it is at the end of the run and has one black wire, one white wire and a ground wire connected to it. The new dimmer comes with one black, one white, one red, one yellow and ground wires. The instructions show the yellow wire is for a remote 3way switch and is not used in this situation.
My question is how do I connect the rest of the wires. When I asked the store if this was the correct switch for my application I was told yes and to just keep switching the wires until I found the correct combination that worked!
The store doesn't know what they are talking about. And I can't believe they told you to just keep switching wires. Hitting the wrong wires is an easy way to short the dimmer switch out. Take it back and go to Home Depot or Lowes and buy the same type switch you took out.
