SOURCE: how can i wire a combination switch outlet

first try putting the red and black together and the whites together...turn on power, if the lamp lights all the time then keep reading, (if not you need find out which is hot and which is going to the lamp this can get complicated if the color code is not followed)
find out if the blk is hot all the time or if the red is hot you need a tester for this. its easier to make a double pig tail on the hot wire and put one of the pigtails on one side of the switch and the other on the BRASS screw on the recpt. now put the other wire (red or blk) on the other side of the switch no pig tail. then tie the whites together with a single pigtail and put the pig tail on the SILVER side of the recpt. make sure you tie in a ground as well or the GFI will not work. hope this helps

SOURCE: How to wire to attic fan?

OK, your new switch will require the use of a neutral wire. So you will have to do what is called a pigtail. You will have to twist another white wire in with your other white wires to attach your neutrals to your switch. Note: white wires are called neutral not common. Hook the wires that were originally hooked up to your LINE to your HOT (Black) on your new timer, and the what was originally LOAD up to the new timer LOAD. SO as far as wiring all that will change is your white wires that need to attach to your timer NEUTRAL.

SOURCE: GE digital timer. Instructions say to: 1)

Find the Hot wire:
Your switch has 2 wires. One of these wires is Hot, and one goes to load. Disconnect wires from switch. Turn on power. Do not stand on wet surface. Test each wire to bare copper wire. When tester lights up, that is Hot wire. The other wire goes to load.

Connect wires:
Hot wire goes to Black timer wire
Wire to load goes to Red timer wire
White wire connects to white wires that are twisted together
Bare copper wire connects to Green wire from timer

How to connect white wire to white wires that are twisted together.
a) Strip white timer wire so you have 1-1/2 " of bare wire. Stranded wire will wrap around other wires easily.
b) Remove wire nut. DO NOT UNTWIST wires.
c) Hold all whites together so bare copper lines up. Wrap stranded copper around the twisted wire.
d) Replace wire nut, or use larger wire nut. Twist real tight. Do not use tape. You can solder the connection.
e) When done, pull on white time wire to make sure it is held tight. Push whites back into box.

You have a two-speed as indicated by the red jumper wire and brown wire left out for connection. These two wires connect to the speed switch with the red jumper to low speed and the brown wire to high speed. The black electrical cord wire connects to the L or COM terminal of the speed switch. The diagram below should give you better understanding on how the motor and the speed switch is wired.

The L/COM terminal makes contact with terminal 1 for low speed and terminal 2 for high speed. The OFF (0) is not shown.

How do I connect a day night switch


I assume your talking about a day/night sensor that controls one or more lights. If that's the case the sensor has 3 wires, B/R/and W. The lights have 2 wires B and W. And you have a 110Vac power line with 2 wires B and W. To wire it. Connect the black wire from the power supply to the black wire from the sensor. Connect the red wire from the sensor to the black wires going to the lights. Connect the remaining white wires all together.

Notes: NOTE: Jeep vehicles that use a gray ignition key have an immobilizer system that needs to be bypassed when remote starting. Use DEI part number 555C or 555U. *1 Use orange/black and pink/black at the drivers door lock switch to lock and unlock the drivers door. Use orange/purple and pink/purple at the passengers door lock switch to lock and unlock all of the other doors. *2 The dk. blue/pink will flash the hazard lights. They will flash even with a latch input to the wire. The parking lights can be activated by using a 1300 ohm resistor to ground on the yellow headlight wire. *3 Use a 330 ohm resistor to ground for headlight activation. Use 80 ohms to ground on the same wire to operate both the headlights and parking lights. *4 There are 4 separate door triggers wire, one for each door. Use all 4 wires and diode isolate each together. The drivers door is tan/red at the drivers door lock switch. The passenger door is tan/red at the passengers door lock switch. The drivers rear door is tan/orange and the passengers rear door is tan/yellow at the BCM. WHEN USING A 455J INTERFACE MODULE, IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO USE THE SEPARATE TRIGGER WIRES. USE THE YELLOW WIRE AT THE UNDERDASH LIGHT FOR DOOR TRIGGER. *5 Factory alarm disarm requires a 463 ohm resistor to ground on the lt.green/orange wire at the drivers door lock switch, you MUST use a relay. *6 The 4.7L motor has a separate coil for each cylinder. Go to any coil and use any wire that is NOT dk. green/orange. On the 4.0L motor use any of the tan/stripe wires at the coil pack, or go to one of the fuel injector and use the wire that is NOT dk. green/orange. *7 Can also use DEI part number 455J door lock interface control module. This will control door lock, unlock, arm, disarm, dome light supervision and more.

It was working fine just the other day, and then it shut itself off. Now the source light is just flashing red.


Check your fuses and make sure one didn't blow. Also, re-check power at the back of the unit to make sure you have 12V on the battery/memory wire(yellow) and the switch power wire(red). The battery wire is always hot and the red should have power once you turn on the key.

The reason there is 2 black in the wall is because a standard line breaking switch was used. Meaning the hot side of the light was the black wire once broken light goes off. You would hook the black from switch to black in wall and white from switch to other black in wall green is ground and red put wire nut on. Red is for a 2 switch system. Where one of two switches in same room controls same light. Its not needed. Take caution when doing this trun light on goto breaker box and flip breakers till you find the right one that powers that light. once lights off then do your thing replacing.

We just bought a house and the living room has a light fixture and there is a dimmer switch that controls it. I removed the light fixture and installed a ceiling fan but the fan barely moves and the light...


You're correct. The dimmer switch was not made for that fan.

The Green is ground > so you're right there too. I assume other plugs nearby are working when dimmer is on. Check that to make sure.

By your description, I assume there is NOT another switch or dimmer that connects to same light. If so, you need a 3-way switch and the following instructions are void.

I suspect when you wired the new fan, that you saw the red and small black wires in the ceiling box. Did you connect the fan and light to those wires? If so, the following information will help you wire the switch.

Your incoming Hot line is probably the larger black wire that connects to Dimmer black >>> this wire will connect to either screw on the new switch

To test Hot wire for sure: Take out dimmer and mark wires for identification. Separate wires. Turn on power and test each wire to bare ground. Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power. You'll be fine. Tester lights up on Hot wire.

Next: The smaller black and a red wires are a toss up.

Here's how I would proceed. Connect the black Hot to either screw on switch. Connect red wire to other screw. Put wire nut over small black. Turn on power. Flip switch. Check both lights and fan to see which works with red wire.

Next reverse the toss up wires. Put wire nut over red. Connect small black to switch. Check both lights and fan.

If red and small black control the light & fan, then connect them together on the same screw, and you're done.

If you want to control the fan and light separately, buy double switch, and then Hot connects to dark-colored screw on one side of switch, and red and small black connect to two different screws on opposite side of switch.

My GE 7-Day Digital Timer model 15086 flashes on


I just bought one today and installed it. It does the same thing - flashes the lights off and on. After some research on the net, it seems that the problem is that an old house is wired with two pole wiring and the new fixtures, (timers included) are 3 pole. The conclusion I have found is that it will not work in a 2 pole wired house. There supposedlly are timers available for 2 pole wiring. I hope this helps. If you find out anything different, please let me know.

Notes:
NOTE: This vehicle is equipped with a passive immobilizer that needs to be bypassed for remote start operation only. Use DEI part number 555U to bypass. *1 The DDM (drivers door module) is located in the center of the drivers door. *2 Requires a double pulse to unlock. *3 Parking lights require a negative trigger with a 1800 ohm resistor in-line to the white/green wire. Using a negative trigger with a 780 ohm resistor in-line to the same white/green wire will turn on the headlights as well as the parking lights. *4 This wire may cause the aftermarket alarm to false when the vehicles electrical system shuts down. Use a relay to isolate it. *5 The FEM (Front Electronic Module) is located in the drivers kick panel. The REM (Rear Electronic Module) is located in the trunk, just above the battery. hope that helps
