If you removed a switch there should be two wires. Connect one of the wires to each of the switch wires or screws. good luck

well lets see on one side you should have two brass screws that would be to interupt your lead to the fixture then you either have a brass and silver screws on the other side or you have black and white wires the black or brass is always hot the silver or white is neutral does that answer your question if not hit me back with a description of what your switch looks like

SOURCE: Trying to install lsdc163pwv

Found a .pdf file that shows LSDC163pwv ... it does not show wiring for LSDC. It shows wiring for other 3-way dimmers & separate wiring for 3-way fan control. This is a clue.

The Pass and Seymour download page does not load, so I can't see specific manual.

Let me provide what I know:
-Instructions might be confusing because LSDC works for both single-pole and 3-way circuits ... which probably adds a lot of extra wording in manual
-LSDC Device has single-pole/3-way dimmer (this requires 3 wires)
-Device has single-pole/3-way fan control with 3 speeds (which requires 3 wires)
-That's 6 total wires
-If I understand correctly, you just want to control a ceiling light? -And you do not have a fan? And your ceiling light is set up with 3-way switches.
-IF you are also wanting to control a fan in addition to the light, the box will need separate wires that go specifically to the fan >> your description shows that you do not have separate wires for the fan. Is this correct?
-Without separate wires to the fan, you can still control the light ... but if wires to light also turn the fan on-and-off, then the LSDC is not the right control since a dimmer for lights will not work on both fan and light.
To wire the light:
-You have identified black common wire for light (it is connected to dark-colored screw on 3-way switch)
-You have identified travelers that connect the 3-way switches
-The neutral wires seem to be twisted together at back of box.
-I think the dimmer is located on the top, and fan control is bottom?? Not 100% sure >>>
-Question: are there 3 wires that are associated with dimmer?
-If you can see 3 wires for dimmer, one of those wires should be black ... just hook that to common, and hook other 2 wires to travelers ... and see if it works. If not, keep connecting them until correct combination is found.

Tip- I read a lot of electrical part manuals, and when confused, I write out the instructions so it breaks down the information.

Encon fan with two seperate switches. Switch works fan, but switch doesn't work light. I replaced wall switch, it didn't help.


Make sure the fan light wire is connected in the ceiling otherwise you might need a new pull chain for the light.

Bathroom fan is on the same circuit with the light. Is there a switch that I can install on the fan so that I can control it from the light switch without running an additional wire?


It depends in part on the fan. Many but not all give you the option to run seperate feeds for the fan and the light, which is necessary to do what you want. If you are experienced with electrical work, you will be able to tell because the feeds for the fan and light will be pigtailed together in the small junction box built into the fan housing. You will need to run a new cable to the location where you plan to mount the 2 switches also... hope this helps

if its a duel switch that controls lights, and the fan seperately. sounds like the power for the lights is going directly to the fan, and therefore making the lights work also. also check out switch, make sure power is only going to the lights, with light switch on.

I have a hunter ceiling fan that was wired with 2 conductor so the fan is always on when the light is on. I should be able to replace the 2 conductor with 3 conductor to seperate the controls. Yes?


That's correct, you need to add a switch on your wall, so you'll have one switch for the light and one for the fan, and instead of having a black and white wire going from the wall switch box to the fan box you will run 3 wire cable with a black, red and white wire. Black and red will control your fan and light while white will be your neutral. Just remember to separate the wires up in the fan box so your light and fan are controlled separately.

I am trying to install a 42" ceiling suspended fan .. just making sure the blue(1) and black(2) wires go together and then the green goes to the bare ground wire coming from the box.


If you are not using a seperate switch to control the fan the blue and black go together and the white goes to white and the green goes to green. The blue wire is the fan power wire and the black is the light power wire if you are just using the switch on the fan to control the fan speed then the above configuration is the way it should be wired.

Wiring a fan with two seperate switches


I am assuming that you have two 3way switches controlling this fan/light .. if there are more switches , then stop here and get back to me

connect the house wires red to red and black to black , then a house4 white to the ]fan white , the other house white connects to both the black and blue from the fan .. to be exactly correc the white fan wire should be connected to the white house wire that is the white power wire from the electrical panel.,

Hunter fan/light control wiring


solution depends on how many wires are in the ceiling box. was there a ceiling fan in place before? were the light and fan controlled by seperate switches or was there only one switch? if two switches, then there should be two seperate hot wires in the ceiling box. if only one switch, then only one hot wire in box. if only one, then your black and red from the fan will wire together to the single hot. green goes to the bare copper wire, if not one, then not needed

With a switch it is always the hot wire (black or red one) that goes through it. If it doesn't work, it may be a faulty switch. They make everything in China now, after all.
