I know I need to put my red and black wires in the bottom of the breaker switch near the area where the curly white wire goes in. There are three holes. Which three holes do I use for the red and black wires?

One of the holes will have a white dot painted on it DO NOT USE THAT HOLE. There should be two holes that line up and one hole that is offset (the one with the white dot)

My girlfriend has a leviton illumatech IP106 that keeps "not working". after a number of months. It is operarting a standard dining room 6 light chandelier. A couple of her friends have replaced this in...

As a general rule for timers and dimmers:

The Black dimmer wire connects to black hot wire coming from breaker (122V line)
The red dimmer wire connects to Load (wire going to chandelier)

The wall red wire that is capped could be a couple different things. a) It could go to a second switch that was used to control the chandelier. b) it could be another wire that goes to same ceiling box as chandelier to be used to control a fan, except you don't have a fan. In the second case, if you install a fan with a light, you could control fan and light separately.

The green is a ground wire that connects to bare copper wire in box. The bare copper connect back to main breaker box on the Neutral busbar.
White wires that are twisted together inside your light switch box also connect back to to main breaker box on the Neutral busbar.
The ground wire and neutral are a redundant safety system to protect you from electrical devices and appliances that have 'shorted'
The black hot wire connects back to the circuit breaker.

For example, each circuit breaker controls one area of household lighting. The black white and copper wires leave breaker box in a single romex cable. The romex travels to a junction box in the area where the lights are located. The junction box is usually a switch box or a ceiling box. From the junction box, the romex travels to each other switch, light and receptacle box in the area. So each box has 1 hot and 1 neutral and 1 ground that is connected in a line that leads back to breaker box.

Here's a couple pages that make home wiring easier to understand:

A single pole ground fault breaker has a screw terminal on one side for the black wire to the ciorcuit, a white curly pigtail that goes to the panel neutral/ground bar, and a screw terminal near the white wire for the white neutral wire from the circuit.

A 2 pole GFI breaker is similar, But it has another screw terminal for the other hot wire in the circuit.
For a 220 volt, 2 pole, GFI protected circuit, you need to run a 4 wire cable. black, red, white, green.

I have a breaker that keeps blowing. 3 wire plus ground from header to wall, black, white and ground...another set feeds two not being used in second??? If light switch is in the...

When you turn the switch on, you are closing it on a short, that much is clear. But I am reading between the lines here. Tell me if I have this right....
Red,black,white & ground come in through the top of switch box. The switch is supposed to control a ceiling fixture. A Black,white&ground goes out bottom of switch box to feed two wall outlets. The switch is not used to control the wall outlets.
And I am guessing that this is not a 3-way switch - it has only two terminals (besides the ground) - and there is not another switch controlling the same ceiling fixture.
If I have all that right, then the correct connections will be---
The black wire coming in from the the top, plus the black wire going out the bottom and one of the switch terminals should all be connected together.
The red wire should be connected to the other switch terminal.
The two white wires should be connected together, not to the switch.
I hope this was helpful to you. Let me know if it worked out. And if I misunderstand the issue, please add comments to clarify. Thanks for using FixYa.

There are two issues here. The red and green wires are not standard, so rather than assume, you'll have to confirm where they go on the ceiling fixture by dropping that fixture enough to examine it. The other issue is that you have apparently bought two four-way switches - they will work, but you may have to make a change after you initially wire it up.
i'll describe how to wire this, but before you wire it this way you MUST confirm my assumption that at the ceiling fixture the red wire is connected to a black flexible wire (either for the fan or for the light) and the green wire is connected to a white flexible wire (either for the fan or for the light).
Now back to the switch box. .
You need to determine which of the black/white/ground wire sets is coming from the breaker. If this isn't obvious visually, you can check this by temporarily wiring a light to one set, have somebody turn the breaker on then off. If it lights, you got it. If it doesn't light, its the other one, but repeat the test on the other one to be sure.
Now the switches. You will only use two terminals on each switch. On each switch you will use one of the top terminals and one of the bottom terminals. Use the two terminals on the same side of the switches. (Later, if you find that your switch operates upside-down, where up is off and down is on - then you can swap a wire so that you are using two terminals that are on opposite corners of the switch.)
Connect the black wire coming from the breaker to switch 1. You also need to add a jumper wire from that terminal to the corresponding terminal on switch 2.
Connect the other black wire to the other terminal on switch 1. Connect the red wire to the other terminal on switch 2. Connect the two bare ground wires to the grounding lugs on the two switches.
The other three wires are white, white, and green. These are the neutrals and should all be connected together.

the black wire goes to - and the red goes to + for 12 volts. If you want 24 volts you need to add another battery and run a jumper wire from the - of the first battery to the + of the second battery and hook the white wire to the - of the second battery. Here is a picture to help you.

I need to switch my three prong power chord to a four prong

your terminal block on the dryer will have three screws in a row and there will be a green screw on the outer skin next to the terminal block cover - your four-wire cord will have a white wire, red, black and green wires - white wire goes on the center screw of the terminal block, red wire goes on one of the other screws of the terminal block, it doesn't matter which, black wire goes on remaining terminal block screw, green wire goes to the green screw

I have a ceiling fan with a light that is controlled by the same switch. I want to put a combination switch to control them seperately. There two sets of 3 wire (black, white, red, ground) and another set...

First, turn off the circuit breaker. The three wire bundle should be the incoming power, the four wire bundle should be going to the fixture. Using a duplex switch (one with two toggles), the incoming black wire goes to one side of the switch, the outgoing black and red wires go to separate terminals on the other side of the switch. The whites are connected together. The Grounds (or bare copper) are connected together and to the switch ground screw. Hopefully both the outgoing read and black were connected to the old switch or you may have to rewire the fan to wire up the fan and light separately.
