This can be done numerous ways, however virtually every state and country has strict codes regarding electrical wiring, and it being done by a licensed professional.

Please check your local area for codes before you proceed. Some places allow you to do your own work, some require you to get a permit for simple stuff like a ceiling fan. I know, it's stupid.

I would go and talk with someone at a store like HomeDepot. I would not necessarily believe everything they say about codes, but they may offer some input. When you are at a store, you can pick up wiring books for less than $20 which give illustrations on how to do stuff like this.

You can use a double switch, or make a '2-gang box' by adding another switch.
Copy following links for wiring multiple switches inside same box, and wiring double switch.

How to wire a double light switch


The neutral never connects to a switch.
The switch turns OFF hot wire to each light, while the neutral remains continuous throughout whole house.
The neutral is like the ground wire in residential single-phase wiring: both remain unbroken and continuous throughout house.
Copy following link for double switch wiring diagrams, including boxes with neutral wire and boxes without neutral wire:

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.

Wiring bath fan with Fan/ light combo. Want to operate the features on seperate switches. Have power wire Black/ White/Green. Each switch has own wire Black/White/ Green. In the unit there is a Blue/white...


If I understand correctly you are installing two wall switches.
Your switches are switch1 and switch2
Each switch has 2 brass-colored screws
If you have a double switch, see page bottom
And you are installing a fan/light combo with separate wires for fan and light.

Bare ground wires and green wires connect to each other and to green screw. A ground wire runs from fan/light to switch box where it connects to other bare copper wire and these wires will not be discussed.

Lets work from the fan/light down to the switch.

Blue-wire-fan connects to either brass screw on switch1
White-wire-fan connects to white Neutral (we'll talk about this wire as we go)

Black-wire-light connects to either brass screw on switch2
White-wire-light connects to same Neutral as White-wire-fan.

So you need 3 wires running from fan/light to your switch box.
One wire arrives at switch box and connects to brass screw on switch1
One wire arrives at switch box and connects to brass screw on switch2
One wire is the Neutral wire and it arrives at switch box and connects to other white wires inside switch box. Twist these wires together and cover with wire nut.

Now your white Neutral is connected to other white wires in switch box.
Each switch still needs another wire.

The Hot black wire from breaker box connects to brass screw on both switches

03fdf56.jpg
Pardon the crude drawing.
The switches would actually be located next to each other, but it was easier to draw like this.
Drawing shows 3 wires coming from fan-light to switch box.
The drawing shows the black and white wire arriving from breaker
The drawing does not show how the white wires are joined with a wire nut

If you have a double switch, with 2 switches stacked vertically.
The screw colors can be different.
Double switch could have brass screws on both sides, in which case your Load (fan-light) wires connect on one side of device, and your Hot from breaker connects to other side. It doesn't matter which side, but loads on one side, hot on other side.
Double switch could also have dark screw(s) on one side and brass screws on other side.
In this case, the black Hot from breaker connects to dark-colored screw(s)
And your Load (fan-light) connect to brass colored screws.

If you need more information, or if something is still confusing, answer back.
