Question about Gardner Bender #GSW-SK Door Switch
The 'comm' on that switch is very misleading. Generally that would refer to the white (or neutral wires), however in this case it doesn't. All a switch does is interrupt power. One black wire is power into the switch, and the other black wire is power out of the switch. So, all you have to do is leave the whites connected to each other, and connect one black wire to one black lead on the switch, and connect the other black wire to the other lead on the switch. Everything should work perfectly after this.

I dont understand your question. However, I can tell you how to put a switch in this circuit.
You are taking power from an outlet. Run the black, white and green to the switch box. if the box is metal, you myst make a ground connection and you must ground the switch frame. The white runs straight through the switch box to the flourescent, as will the green after you make the connection to the box and the switch frame. The hot black goes to a brass screw. continue with the black from the other brass screw on the switch to the black (red) in the flourescent. Green is ground; white goes to the white wire and black to the black.
Does this help you? If not ... please reask
