SOURCE: How do I install a Pass & Seymour Nightlight/

The wires that you taped up are most likely the wires that feed that outlet and the outlet that isn't working anymore in the bathroom. The proper way to fix your problem would be to do one of the following:
Turn off all electrical power to that circuit. If you are unsure, turn the whole panel off. The inconvenience of resetting your household clocks isn't worth your life.

1) If the screws on your new outlet have spaces for two wires, reattach the disconnected wires under the same screws as the ones feeding the new outlet.
2) Cut yourself a 8" piece of black, white and green or bare copper wire. Disconnect the wires feeding the new outlet. Twist all three wires together, color to color and twist a wirenut on each connection. You should have the three black wires twisted together, the white wires twisted together and the green or bare wires twisted together. Now take the 8" wires and reconnect them to the outlet. Black going to the bronze screw, white going to the silver screw, and green or bare going to the green screw.

You're right, green goes to ground.
Black wire connects to Hot wire from breaker box
Red goes to Load (fan, light, motor)

Ok which wire on the switch goes to the Load?
And which goes to Hot from breaker box?

You can test or you can simply hook up the device. If it doesn't work, swap the two wires.
It just won't work until the 2 wires are correct.

SOURCE: I am using a Pass & Seymour illuminated three

I answer questions for free
I work with timers and electrical devices.

If I understand correctly you replaced a 3-way switch.
The new switch has 3 screws (plus green ground screw)
You put the Hot wire on the dark screw correctly.
You attached the two travelers to the brass-colored screws.
The two travelers are red and white.
You connected the ground wire to the green screw.
The ground wire is not supposed to be connected to with the white wire, and I doubt it is because that would trip the breaker.
The lights are working correctly.

If you followed the formula above to the letter, then the lighted switch should light up.
My best guess at this point is that the lighted switch is defective.
The Pass and Seymour webpage does not have manuals to look at like Leviton and Lutron products.
As a result I can't pour over a manual and put a magnifying glass on the wiring and wording to see if there is something we've missed.
But it's just not that complicated ... the light switch should light up.

At this point, I suggest you re-read the instructions (just in case?) and then swap the switch for another one ... or get different brand.

The cord that runs to your light contains two wires.
The cord switch interrupts one wire.
The second wire runs uninterrupted between wall plug and light.

The photo below is not the same switch as yours, but it shows how one wire is interrupted and the other wire is uninterrupted.


Which wire do you want to interrupt?
Look at the wall plug.
Is the plug polarized, where one blade of the plug is wider?
If the plug is polarized, then one blade is wide and the other is narrower.
Each blade of the plug feeds one of the two wires going to lamp.
Locate the narrower blade, and the wire that comes from that side of plug.
The narrow-blade wire is the wire you want to interrupt when installing the cord switch.

If the plug is not polarized, then choose one wire.

I am trying to install a Pass & Seymour Harmony fan speed control switch. It has 2 red wires and 1 black. I hooked up the power to the red line and the black leading to the wiring for the fan. No...

Are you wiring for 3-way or single pole?
In other words, are you using 1 switch (single-pole) or 2 switches (3-way)

Before installing device, separate all wires in box and turn power on and then test each wire to bare ground wire >> tester will light up on Hot power source.
Black wire on device is connected to Hot power source.
Red wire on same side of device as black wire is capped off in single pole application.
Red wire on other side of device from black wire goes to the fan motor.
Green wire is ground.

Set fan on highest speed before connecting red wire to fan, and then do not adjust fan speed using pull chain.

I am unsure what volt-amp-testing will show for power output on either red wire, but certainly it will vary as the switch is adjusted to each speed.

Call 800-223-4185 for Legrand tech support.

Wiring comination 2 switch, with exisiting light to new bath fan

Hello anonymous,

I am concerned in so many ways... (USA NEC assumed):
FIRST concern:
(after the obvious BATHROOM/GFCI issue) is the
NATIONAL ELECTRIC CODE for wire/device capacity
INSIDE your existing ELECTRIC box...

The CODE requires wires to have space ... aside
from the fact that it is just plain dangerous to
pack wires densely and pack them together tightly...

Then... of course... You have said nothing about the wire gauge/ampacity... (again assuming 14 Gauge/15 Amp)... you will have to calculate the fill for each wire and check the Cubic Inches Plus your device against the ELECTRICAL BOX rated capacity...

That is just the BASICs of SAFETY.

Looking for a diagram of your
"1595" Legrand Pass & Seymour I have failed miserably.

I have found what YOUR switch looks like...

From an old electrician's standpoint...
If you have EACH device wire separately thru
their respective switches...

There should be NO POWER to operate the FAN.

The FACT that there is ... Is highly PROBLEMATICE.

It would seem that a PREVIOUS ELECTRICIAN
has switched the NEUTRAL side of your
old light circuit... Easy to prove with a VOLT TESTER.

I Recommend KLIEN NCVT (non-contact volt tester)
Klein Tools NCVT 1 Non Contact Voltage Tester Electrical Tools Amazon com

poses an EXTREME hazard in a bathroom
(any water) location but is EASY to fix...

Rip it ALL apart and properly configure all the EXISTING WIRES...

Do it right... Be safe.
