Question about Pass & Seymour #5410WBPCC5 White In Line Cord Switch

1 Answer

Don't know how to fit the wire into the inside of the switch

Have an in-line switch made by Pass & Seymour. Never before installed such a switch. Looking at the inside of the switch where the wire lays, don't know which side the cut wire goes. Also, is it the copper wire that is cut?

Since there are only 2 wires, it doesn't matter which wire goes where. Either way it will work.

I'm want to install a toggle switch/outlet but have 2 white wires and 1 black. It's a Pass & Seymour 691-WCC6 switch. Can I install this switch?


More information is needed.
Unknown what wiring device was there before, and which wires were connected to which screw terminals.
Wire color is not as important as knowing what wire is for.
If both white wires were connected together before, then they need to be put back same way.
Separate wires. Turn on power. Test each wire to bare ground. Tester lights up on Hot wire. The Hot wire is usually black.
In back of box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nuts. These are the neutrals.
Test black hot wire to neutrals and tester will light up. If box does not have neutrals, then device cannot be installed to code.

How to install Pass & Seymour 5410CC10 sp2 cord switch on a torchiere lamp? Can it be used the same as an sp1 switch?


The cord that runs to your light contains two wires.
The cord switch interrupts one wire.
The second wire runs uninterrupted between wall plug and light.

The photo below is not the same switch as yours, but it shows how one wire is interrupted and the other wire is uninterrupted.

Which wire do you want to interrupt?
Look at the wall plug.
Is the plug polarized, where one blade of the plug is wider?
If the plug is polarized, then one blade is wide and the other is narrower.
Each blade of the plug feeds one of the two wires going to lamp.
Locate the narrower blade, and the wire that comes from that side of plug.
The narrow-blade wire is the wire you want to interrupt when installing the cord switch.

If the plug is not polarized, then choose one wire.

I just purchased 2 of these dimmers from ebay but they do not have the instructions. Both are exactly alike and have 2 wires. How do they install?


You posted under Pass and Seymour rotary dimmer that has two wires.

If your dimmer is like other rotary dimmers, it has a black and red wire.
Or it has 2 black wires.

If your switch has 3 wires, then the dimmer will not work.
If your switch has 2 wires:
Probably both switch wires are black.
One of these wires goes to Load (lights)
The other wire is Hot from breaker box

If dimmer has 2 black wires, they connect to either wire from switch.

If dimmer has black and red wires,
> dimmer-black connects to Hot from breaker
> dimmer red connects to Load
> green (if available) goes to bare copper wire

Recommendation:
If you do not know which wire is Hot from breaker, simply hook up dimmer and see if it works.
If it doesn't, then reverse the wires.

If this information does not fit your specific dimmer, please answer back with more details and we'll get it working.
