You can't, not without running an additional wire. The black and white pair of wires that you have is most likely routed from the ceiling fixture. The black wire would be the hot wire coming to the switch and the white is the switched hot wire returning to the fixture. You don't have a neutral available at this location, so you can't make the outlet work, just the switch. ----- Sorry for the bad news. Thanks for using fixya. Al Kupchella

Light switch wiring


Yes.
The code is maximum 12 boxes per circuit breaker.
You can connect a 12-2 NM W/G cable to one of the outlets. Black-to-black and white-to-white and ground-to-ground. Black is hot, white is neutral, and ground is ground. And bring that cable into a hollow-wall box you install 50" high on the wall. Then run the 12-2 cable up to your light fixture.

http://waterheatertimer.org/OWB1.html

You can also replace one of the outlets with a combo switch-outlet. The run singe 12-2 cable up to light.
This wiring diagram shows half way down how-to-wire-switches page.
Outlets have wide blade on neutral side, and narrow blade on hot side.
The black hot wires from old outlet connect to side of combo device with narrow blade.
The white neutrals from old outlet, and new wire going to switch, all connect to silver screw on wide-blade side of new combo device.
The black wire going to new light connects to screw next to switch located on wide-blade side of device.

How do you wire in the 2 black wires that are attached to this switch?


There are two wires on back of GFCI combo switch outlet
The switch controls these two black wires on back of GFCI device.
For example if you have a black and white wire going to light.
Black wire going to lights connects to the wire on hot side of combo device.
White wire connects to wire on neutral side of combo device.

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.

Open following link for illustration of wiring:

You have switch plug combo with dark screws, brass screw, and silver screw.
Dark screws are for black Hot wire coming from breaker box.
Brass screw is wire going to Load that you want to turn on-off.
Silver screw is for white Neutral wire coming from breaker box.

To set up so switch controls outlet, you need 2 dark screws on one side of device that are connected by break-away fin.
Remove fin so dark screws are no longer connected.
One dark screw goes to switch, one dark screw to outlet.
Hot black wire connects to dark screw for switch.
Connect jumper wire from brass Load screw to the dark screw for outlet.
Connect Neutral wire to silver screw.

To test for Hot and Neutral:
Separate wires.
Turn power ON.
Test each wire to bare ground wire, tester lights up on Hot.
Hot is identified.
Test Hot wire to all other wires except bare ground, tester lights up on Neutral.

Trying to install a combo leviton switch that has two back wires on it. my outlet has two back two white and one red wire, where does the two black wire go?


Question is not clear.
What kind of device is the combo device replacing?
Are you replacing outlet with new combo device?
Why does the combo device already have 2 black wires?

Here's what we need to know to answer your question correctly without guessing.
Add a comment and say what kind of device is being replaced with combo device.
Say exactly what wires are on old device and what color screw wire is connected to.

Say what the outlet is doing.
Say what color screws that each wire is connected to on outlet.

Screw color is key to understanding where you are.
Each wire that you have now connects to a certain screw color, and we need to know that information to give you professional answer.

Switch-plug combo:
bare ground goes to green screw
dark screw goes to hot from breaker
silver screw to neutral
brass screw goes to load (light)

Add a comment any time
You are replacing single pole light switch?
Single pole switch has 3 wires: black and red and bare copper

New device has 4 different colored screws: green, dark, brass, silver
Bare copper goes to green screw.
Black wire goes to dark screw
Red wire to brass screw
Nothing on silver screw for a moment. Test circuit and make sure light turns on-off.
If lights works, then good so far.

Now let look at silver screw. Neutral wire has to connect to silver screw.
In back of your electrical box are white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut.
These are neutral wires.
You must connect another short piece of insulated wire to these neutral wires and run that wire to silver screw.
The neutral wire will complete circuit to receptacle.
If you do not have neutral wire, then receptacle will not work in that box without additional wiring.

Hook up neutral wire to silver screw.
Now turn on power and click switch again.
If circuit breaker trips, then reverse your red and black wires.
Otherwise this should be correct wiring.

If I understand you question (if not please clarify) you have a switch and outlet combo and you have a box with a black and white coming in one side and a black and white going out the other side. Here's the deal the switch side only deals with the black (hot) lines but the outlet needs a common (white) line so there should be two brass posts the black coming in goes to the bottom brass post and the black going out to the light goes to the top. You should now have two silver posts and these take the white lines they are common to each other (electrically speaking that means they are two ends of the same wire to put it simply) In the event you only have one silver post tie both whites to that one. if this was a switch box the two whites would be tied together with a wire nut and shoved in the back.

good luck I hope this helps.
