Question about Westinghouse Electric Ceiling Fan 3-way Light Switch By Westinghouse 77052
I assume the switch operates the lights only. Besides the ground (green or bare) and the neutrals (4 white wires all connected together), the only wires of interest should be 4 wires (black) from the fixture and the 2 wires on your switch. Of the 4 black wires, one of them is the hot wire and the other 3 connect to the three bulbs. Connect the hot wire to either one of your switch leads and connect the other 3 wires to the other switch lead.
If you don't know which of the 4 black wires is hot you can find it by the process of elimination as follows---- connect any three of the black wires together (then supply power), if nothing lights, then the 4th wire is hot. Otherwise 2 bulbs should light. Remove one wire from this trio. If nothing lights, the wire you just removed is the hot wire. Otherwise, one bulb should light and one of these two remaining wires is the hot wire. Take one of those last two wires and connect it to one of the other bulbs. If it lights, then the wire you just moved is hot. Otherwise the one you left behind is hot. I hope this is helpful. Good luck. Be safe! Al K
