Question about Leviton 8299 Combination Switch / Smart lock GFCI Outlet
I would like to replace a switch going to a fan with a leviton combo 7299-NA.
Currently the box has 2 wires with ground connected to the switch. The white wires are connected together away from the switch and the black lines are both connected to switch.
How do I connect the 7299-na especially the two black wires that are already on the combo unit?
First you must determine which wires in the box are LINE and which are LOAD. Remove the wire nut from the two white wires and separate them. The LINE wires are the black and white wires that come from your breaker box. The LOAD wires are the black and white wires that go to the fan. You can determine this easily with a non-contact voltage detector (about $15). Or temporarily hook up a black & white pair to a lamp. In either case, make sure the exposed wires won't be touched and turn on the breaker for your test.
I will assume that you want the GFCI to protect the fan. Refer the picture (Back View) in the upper right corner of the front side (page 1) of the instruction sheet. If you lost the instruction sheet, you can find it on this page: http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?item=417265§ion=11624&minisite=10021 Connect your black LINE wire to the upper right (LINE, brass) terminal. Connect your white LINE wire to the upper left (LINE , silver) terminal. Remove the yellow tape that covers the load terminals. Connect your white LOAD wire to the lower left (LOAD, silver) terminal Connect your black LOAD wire to one of the two switch leads with a wire nut. Connect the other switch lead to the lower right (LOAD, brass) terminal.
