    Not clear on what you have. You described the picture diagram, what does the switch have if it is different from that?

SOURCE: how to wire 3 switches in a 3 gang box

WARNING: Do not attempt to do this work unless you completely understand the information provided below. If in doubt call an electrician.
Always make sure the power is disconnected from all possible sources before making any connections. Your description of the problem indicates that there may be multiple power wires coming into the same box. In that case local codes may require that the box be partitioned to prevent exposure to voltages up to 220 volts.
You need to determine where each wire goes to know how to connect them together. You cannot rely on color alone. If the power supply runs through the box to the loads then most (but probably not all) of the white wires will be connected together. If the power runs to the load boxes first then none of the white wires in the switch box should be connected together. They are used to run the switched/dimmed power back to the loads (and should be taped to cover the white in the box). In that case each switch has its own power input and they should not be tied together. A wire (could be black or white with black tape) brings power from the load box, gets connected to the input terminal of the switch and the corresponding black wire carries the switched power back to the load. The fan/light switch will have one power in and a switched power out for the fan and another for the light. The 3-way will have one "power" in (or it could be the final power out to the light) and two "carrier wires that connect to the other 3-way switch. If the power supply goes through the switch box then there will be at least 10 wires in that box. In that case see the attached diagram: a5fa64a.gif

SOURCE: I can't figure out how to wire my cooper wiring

Hi,
Take the black going to the light off the center and hook where the white going to the light is now....then hook the white to the light with the other white and you will be good to go...You almost had it right...

just a couple of adjustments....:-)

You are replacing single pole light switch?
Single pole switch has 3 wires: black and red and bare copper

New device has 4 different colored screws: green, dark, brass, silver
Bare copper goes to green screw.
Black wire goes to dark screw
Red wire to brass screw
Nothing on silver screw for a moment. Test circuit and make sure light turns on-off.
If lights works, then good so far.

Now let look at silver screw. Neutral wire has to connect to silver screw.
In back of your electrical box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut.
These are neutral wires.
You must connect another short piece of insulated wire to these neutral wires and run that wire to silver screw.
The neutral wire will complete circuit to receptacle.
If you do not have neutral wire, then receptacle will not work in that box without additional wiring.

Hook up neutral wire to silver screw.
Now turn on power and click switch again.
If circuit breaker trips, then reverse your red and black wires.
Otherwise this should be correct wiring.

SOURCE: Okay, I have the same problem... It is a cooper

Ok you have GFCI combination switch-plug.

Wires coming out of back of device are connected to "Load" wires.
Load are the black and white wires that go to fan, light, motor.

The black and white wires coming from circuit breaker connect to terminals marked "Line"
Look at back of device for markings.
Black wire from breaker goes to brass screw, white wire goes to silver screw.

There is one more set of screws on device. Device usually arrives with tape over these two screws.
This is what those screws are for: If you are working in a junction box, then three cables enter box.
One cable is for Line wires from breaker box.
Second cable goes to Load (light-fan-motor) that is controlled by switch.
Third cable goes forward to another switch or outlet >> and those wires connect to last set of screws on combo device. Black to brass and white to silver.

How to jump a four way switch to a single pole?


You cannot do that and still have the 4-way switch operate.
With 4-way... On the Hot side of 4-way switch (not load side), one screw is hot, or the other screw is hot... but both are not hot at same time.
To draw continuous power from the 4-way, you have to connect wires to both the hot side screws and run to your single-pole switch....however this is the same as jumpering a wire between both hot side screws on 4-way... which will stop 4-way from functioning.

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 a double light switch, the old switch has 6 terminals. The new metal double switch has the same but both commons are at the top where as the old one had common top and bottom. The L1 and L2 are...


You question invites guessing.

Switch is not identified.
Screw terminal colors are not identified. Load is not described.
Maybe you have double switch where 1 switch is single pole and 1 switch is 3-way.
This type switch is wired differently depending on location of hot wire supplying power to 3-way switch.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-Cooper-277-pilot-light-switch.html#TM813

Electricians don't guess, they test.
Use multi-meter and continuity tester from home center.
Screw color is very important for wiring electrical devices.
First step is to note where each wire is located on old switch, hopefully doing that before removing wires on old switch.
And note what color screw that wire connected to.
Take a photograph.
Then determine what each wire does by testing and process of elimination.

Compare screw colors on old device to screw colors on new device.
Use continuity tester on old device and on new device to check screw-terminal relationships.

For additional help, add a comment after testing the screw terminals as described above.

How to connect three gang switch to control three lights, using two 1mm double core


What is 1mm double core?
Following image shows example 120Volt 4 gang switches with outlet.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Single-pole-switches-in-4-g.jpg
Each 120Volt electrical box has one Hot wire. This is true for ceiling and wall boxes.
Normally in a gang box, the Hot wire jumpers across all devices in the box.
Some switch boxes do not have Neutral wire. Neutral wires are usually white, and are twisted together and covered with wire nut and shoved to back of box.
Open following links for typical 120V and 240V circuits in US.
http://waterheatertimer.org/B220C.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html

Feel free to add a comment and describe wiring, and voltage.
For example if hot wire arrives from one of the lights.
Describe the wires that you have, and what each wire goes to for best possible answer.

I have a single pole switch with single receptacle. It is in a double box, I want to change this to a single pole switch with a double receptacle beside it. How?


Unless I misunderstand you, you just need to get a single switch, and a duplex outlet with a matching plate. Your hardest part will be to decide the color of the devices and plate (rectangular, double-D holes, etc. I'd suggest, that for "preserving domestic tranquility" you hire you mate (if any) as consultant on these matters.
(Wire it as it is now; that is if the switch controls the outlet the wiring should still be easy to follow.
DO turn off the power first!)

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

seriously,

there are too many ways to wire a three way switch circuit, to guess at, and they are not all compatible if the ends are wired differently, a sparky has the tester to be able to tie the third switch in.
