The travelers are just different colors to distinguish them from line and load (black). i would guess that whoever wired the house just used what they had on-hand at the time. There are two travelers per switch, so that makes for four wires, the four colored ones that you counted. The black/white/ground is the power (line) and the load.

    i forgot; there are two wires between each switch to allow for the two throws of the switch. When the first switch sends power out one of the wires, the second switch must be on the same pole to let the power through to the light. If they are not, the lights remain off.

Replaced rollers on dryer put back together door closed but keep getting message that it is not closed and wont run?


In order to replace the rollers you had to take off the dryer front. You probably had to unplug the wires to the door switch which if I remember right is in the top left corner of the front panel. Check those connections to the push button switch. If it is not connected, the door will show as open even though it is closed. Or the switch got damaged and is not making contact inside when door is closed. If i remember it is a 3 wire 1 piece plug.It also operates the drum light.

How do i wire a chamberlain opener to work with push button 3 way switch, on/off/on and bypass logic board. mine burned out and i want to use motor to raise /lower patio roll up bamboo shade


Run wires from your switch and connect to terminals #1 and #2 on the motor unit. This will run the motor and it will automatically run in the opposite direction when you once again toggle your switch. You will need to adjust the up and down limits to stop the motor in the right spot for each direction. Before connecting the shade you should remove the cover from the motor unit and watch the operation of the limit switches.

Do you place the propane tank in the heater base


The gas tank should sit inside the housing on top of the base. There is usually a cut out section to allow access to switch on/off the tank. Always best to switch the tank off when not in use. If you need some more info found this site very useful patio heater gas.

Inside top of refrigerator hot light don't turn off.


There is a service bulletin related to this, dealing with deformation / melting of the lamp cover. The fix is to change the lamp wire harness to one that now has a thermal protector incorporated in it (part number 6621JK2003B) along with changing the main PCB board to one that uses a larger relay for this function (part number 6871JB1423N).

In case you want or need to replace the following,
The lamp cover is part number 3110JA1096A and the lamp holder is part number 3034JA1009A

I tried to cut and paste a few photo's, but was unsuccessful. Sorry. Make sure to test that fans and light switches work after part changes.

Ice maker does not make ice and the in-door water is not working properly - it keeps running.


the water in the door problem after you fill up your cup with water it keeps running all over the floor.. it sounds like its a stuck contact on a micro switch inside the door compartment. that lever you are pushing your glass onto is atached to a little switch and if the contacts stay closed (like when a glass is pushing on it) the machine thinks "hey he still wants water". next time it does that try pushing on the spot you put the glass onto a couple of time to see if it stops the water. if so it most likely is the switch. to confirm that is the case you will have to open the plastic moulding from the fridge door to gain access to the switch.( always unplug any electricall device before openning to ensure your hair doesnt end up standing striaght up like a punk rocker) you will know which switch is the one you want to check by depressing the water lever on the front. Ohm check the switch for continuity to see if it gives you proper readings or it is in fact a bunk switch. it also could be a mechanical problem as the lever once unpressed is not opening the switch back up once the glass is removed but that is not as likely unless you are ramming the glass into the water dispensor
hope it helps
