Nope, you have the wrong type of switch. The old one is what is called a 3-way switch. You need to purchase a replacement 3-way. The switch you currently have is a standard on/off switch and can not be used in that situation.

You cannot replace the switch with a switch/receptacle combo because there is no neutral wire. The black and white that you see are both used as hot wires. One is the Line and the other is the Load.

You have to install another 2 wire cable or replace the existing with a 3-wire cable. A 3-wire cable has a black, red, and white, plus the bare ground wire

OK .. the thick black and white are the power for the fan , are there also white wires on the lamp sockets ..??
The thick black wire should connect to the black wire on the switch.
The small black wires connect to the red and blue wire on the switch .. two small black wires each .. that should give you a position for 2 lights , and 4 lights, on the step switch .. but there should be white wires from the lamp sockets connected to the thick white from the fan .

please respond .

I connected the combo per diagram and the outlet is powered only when the light is off. No pilot light at all.


Which combo device do you have??
Include model number so expert can look at the specific manual.

Is this a switch-outlet combo with indicator LED?
Or is this a switch-pilot-light combo that controls separate outlet.

What does the switch control?
What device did you replace?
Did you replace a single-pole switch, or a 3-way switch, or an outlet??
Add a comment including as much detail as possible.

I have a cooper comb devces how do i wire i want switch to control the plug


The Cooper combo device requires neutral wire to energize the outlet.
To control outlet with switch, the Hot side of device must have break-away fin.
Remove break-away fin.
Connect jumper wire from switch load side to outlet Hot side.

I have a westinghuse fan with light it has four wires on it green, blue, black, and red what are they ie live neutral etc


Question posted under 3-speed switch

1) Are you replacing the 3-speed switch?
This is a field with much discussion because Westinghouse 4-wire fan switches vary.
Process of elimination is needed to find hot line. From there you test each wire to the hot line wire to determine which wire or combination of wires makes up low, medium, and high speed.
Open following links for some resources:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Cooper-277-pilot-light-switch.html#3-speed
http://www.ceiling-fans-n-more.com/ceiling-fan-pullchain-replacement-and-repair.php
http://www.atlantalightbulbs.com/ecart/catalog/westinghouse-6.html

2) Or are you looking at fan connection wiring at ceiling?
Green wire goes to bare ground.
Fan should have hot and neutral.

Hot line should be black.
Neutral should be white.

Red usually goes to light
Blue is normally not there.

Where is the white neutral wire?

Take multimeter set to read ohms and test black wire to each other wire.
Process of elimination should reveal correct wiring.

I am trying to wire a cooper 277 swich to control an outlet. I am having a hard time getting it to work. I have followed the wiring diagram with no luck. I would like the Pilot to be on when the switch is...


Open following link for cooper 277 wiring illustration:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Cooper-277-pilot-400.jpg

Wired as shown in illustration, the pilot light and the Load will come on each time switch is turned on.
The illustration show Load is light bulb.
In your case, the Load will be an outlet instead of light bulb.
So the Load will have 2 wires. The black wire from switch connects to brass screw on outlet. The neutral connects to silver screw.
Bare ground wires connect to green screws.

I need the wiring diagram for a Cooper 277W single pole switch with pilot light. The light is to be on when the switch is on. Thanks!


I have 120Volt cooper 277 pilot light switch here in my office.
Dang instruction sheet shows wiring for all kinds of cooper devices.
EXCEPT pilot light switch.

So I tested with multimeter and came up with following:
Key to any wiring device is color of screws.
Hot from breaker box always goes to dark-colored screws.
Neutral always goes to silver-colored screws.
Brass screws are for Hot wires from breaker or Hot going to Load
Green screw - ground
