Not if you want it to work correctly. If you have 2 switches controlling one circuit, they have to be a 3-way, more than 2 switches, it must be a 4-way. The black screw is the only one that matters on wiring, it will go to line or load, the other 2 screws go to the control wires and can go in any order. Obviously ground should be on green. And make sure the breaker is turned off during this process.

Replacing a triple single pole (1980's) with a


DISCLAIMER:Attempting to work on house electrical systems without proper training is DANGEROUS and you stand the risk of dying.


The Cooper 7729w is a three pole single throw switch with a common (connected) hot wire that supplies it. What you had before was two separate single pole single throw switches and one single pole double throw switch that is used as a three way. The short answer is NO that replacement will not work UNLESS you don't want the other switch on the other side of the room to work.


Personally, I think that if you really need to ask this question you need to seek the advice of a professional electrician.

Replacing one thee way switch with a three way switch and an outlet. the switch works fine but the outlet only works when the switch is off.


Switch is wired wrong.
But not sure how it's wired

Copy following link for wiring 5245 combo 3-way switch outlet.
Also look at illustration just below that shows no-neutral.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-switches.html#5245

You replaced old 3-way switch.
Wire that connected to dark screw on old switch, connects to dark screw on 5245.
Wires that connected to other two screws on old switch, connect to 2 brass-colored screws on 5245.
Neutral wire must connect to silver screw on 5245.

Light switch wiring


Yes.
The code is maximum 12 boxes per circuit breaker.
You can connect a 12-2 NM W/G cable to one of the outlets. Black-to-black and white-to-white and ground-to-ground. Black is hot, white is neutral, and ground is ground. And bring that cable into a hollow-wall box you install 50" high on the wall. Then run the 12-2 cable up to your light fixture.

http://waterheatertimer.org/OWB1.html

You can also replace one of the outlets with a combo switch-outlet. The run singe 12-2 cable up to light.
This wiring diagram shows half way down how-to-wire-switches page.
Outlets have wide blade on neutral side, and narrow blade on hot side.
The black hot wires from old outlet connect to side of combo device with narrow blade.
The white neutrals from old outlet, and new wire going to switch, all connect to silver screw on wide-blade side of new combo device.
The black wire going to new light connects to screw next to switch located on wide-blade side of device.

Replacing a switch outlet combination with a switch GFCI outlet combination and there is only one cable in the box (14/3)


If it worked before, it should be a wire to wire replacement. You are replacing a regular switch/outlet with another switch/outlet which just happens to be a GFI outlet.
Wire the old switch wires to the new switch and the old outlet wires to the new outlet.
Cut the breaker/s off first !!

Where on line is there a wiring diagram for the Leviton GLW-1463? I could'nt seem to find it on there web-site. Thank you. :)


Leviton GLW-1463 appears to be ordinary lighted 3-way toggle switch.
This switch is used in a hallway application where more than 1 switch controls a light.
The green screw is for bare ground wire.
There are two brass colored screws for traveler wires, and 1 dark screw for common wire.
If you are replacing another 3-way switch, then note color of each screw on old switch.
Put wire from old dark screw to new dark screw.
The travelers wires can go onto either brass screw.

When I turn on my ps3 model cechg01, it blinks the green light a couple times then shuts itself off. No other color lights just the green one, then beeps three times and shuts off.. Can anybody help narrow...


When you plug in your system with the power cable and turn the toggle switch (in the back) do you see the red stand by light?

The red and yellow light comes from 1 bulb and the green and blu light comes from another..

If you have the YLOD and your yellow/red light is out, you will only see the green light.

I am really interested in your problem.

Do this to check your status: If you can do this function below but not any other, chances are, you do have the YLOD. It can be fixed.

Power off the unit using the toggle switch on the back. Hold down the 'eject' button and turn the toggle switch back from off to on. This will run a fan test and should eject your disc. Remember, this will only work on the 20, 40g models. Not the backwards compatible units with the 4 usb port holes and the memory card slots.

I am replacing a 3 way light switch with a dimmer switch. The existing switch has the green ground, two black on one side and a red on the other. The new dimmer has the green ground, two red and one black....


There is no universal convention on the color coding of wires for three-way switches, other than green always being ground. Fortunately if you wire it wrong you won't hurt anything, it just won't work right. Two wires are "travelers", they run between one three-way switch and the other. The "travelers" were attached to opposite sides of one end of your old switch. From your description, one is red and one is black. (These two wires are interchangeable, except that in one position both toggles up or both down would ON. In the other position one toggle up and the other down would be ON.) The "third wire" was attached to the other end of the old switch and is black. If you can't tell by just looking at it which lead of the new switch is alone at one end of the new switch (and is therefore mate for the "third wire"), you can just try the combinations. Assuming you still know which black wire is your "third wire" there will only be 3 combos.

I am trying to wire a double toggle switch one would work an outside light and the other the garage light. help!!!!


I can probably help you, but I need more info. Are you replacing a single switch that operated both of these lights together? Do you have 3 black wires and three white wires in the box now? Are the 3 white wires all connected together? Were 2 of the black wires connected to one terminal of the old switch, and 1 black wire connected to another terminal of the switch? ----- I'm doing lots of guessing here so that you understand the kind of info I need.
