Wired Leviton 5225-1 switch the same way that switch was wired that came out and the breaker keeps going out. The Leviton switch is wired exactly as the Cooper switch that I took out, that was working, but the Leviton No. 5225-1 switch keeps popping the breaker.

SOURCE: Installing a Leviton 5225 switch with outlet.

A switch is wired using the hot wires only, the black wire. It is simply a break in the line so that when the switch is off no power flows and when the switch is on the power does flow.

You are correct that the middle outlet would have two black wires and two white wires.

If you want to tap into that middle outlet and run power up the wall I suggest you look into some wiremold products. Go to their website, or any home depot and check it out. Get back if you think I can help you further. I am an electrician.

SOURCE: I have just installed 2 Leviton decora switch with

This is a single pole light switch and should be wired as any other SP switch. The only difference is that is has a pilot light. All the white neutral wires are tied together and then pushed back in the box with none connected to the switch. The grounds are tied together with a jumper wire connected to the green screw on the switch. That will leave you with 2 or more black wires. If you have just two normally you can connect them to the two screws on the switch and it does not matter which screws. However it may be that with the pilot light you need to connect the wire going to the light to the top screw and the power wire to the bottom or vice versa. Try both ways. If you have more than 2 black wires you need to connect the incoming power black wire and outgoing power black wires together and then jump to one of the screws on the switch. The black wire left over is the black wire going to the light itself. If none of this works then it is obvious the pilot light in the switch is burnt out.

SOURCE: how to install leviton 5225 wsp wall

For this combo , the white wires connect to the two silver screws on one side of the combo .The black power wire connects to the screw next to the switch. IF you want to have the receptacle hot all the time then jumper the hot black from the switch screw to the receptacle screw. The screw in the center is for the black wire from any lihghts that you want to control. IF it is the receptacle that you wish to control with this switch .. then the power connects to the screw next to the switch and the center screw jump a wire to the screw next to the receptacle

Sounds as if you have a bad illuminated switch. The little LED or light inside the switch is itself possibly bad. Return it to the store and get a different one.

Each outlet receives power from previous outlet box or switch box in a long chain of parallel wiring back to ceiling box, or junction box, and then back to circuit breaker.
Use process-of-elimination to find problem.
Locate all boxes on same circuit breaker. Locate box before the two dead boxes... it can be in ceiling light, or switch box, or outlet box. Then test those wires. Look for loose quick connect where wires are pushed into hole on back of device, or loose white wires twisted together and shoved to back of box.

If you blew breaker than you connected Neutral wire to switch.
Neutral wire never connects to switch.

Identify Hot wire.
There is only one Hot wire that carries power to switch box.

What model Leviton GFCL should I use? My wire is a 600 volt 12/2 with ground. Said wire feeds other GFCL outlets.


Any off-the-shelf GFCI sold today with work on 12-2 wire:
By code, 12-2 wire should be connected to 20 amp circuit breaker, but typically most switches and outlets wired to that circuit are rated 15 amp. Amp rating is printed on electrical devices.

The Leviton page for Leviton 5613 does not have a troubleshoot.
Manual shows simple wiring diagram.
3-way switches will not operate lights if switches are wired incorrectly.
Check your ground wire is connected.
Leviton 5613 series is illuminated.
Check that both switches have 5613 number.
Swap switches and see if problem is inside switch.

The black to switch is broken at switch-----source is from light ---no neutral can I connect a combination switch ? ----light controlled with toggle ---plug hot all the time. ...


If I understand correctly you want to replace a switch with a switch-plug combo?
A switch-plug combo requires a neutral wire on the silver screw.
The black hot wire from breaker goes to the dark-colored screw.
The black wire going to switch goes to gold-colored screw.

If this is not correct and you want more help, add a comment.
