It sounds like you have a pull chain switch that turns on one and/or multiple lightsor light and fan. The common wire would be a colored wire (probably black or red) and the one and two gang terminals would be your switch connectors. Neither terminal should be connected to a white or green wire..
I hope this helps out.

You have 2-gang switch.
Look at following illustration showing gang switches:
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-wire-switches.html#gang

Hot wire feeds one screw on first switch, and then jumpers to second switch.
Your jumper wire is connected wrong place.

Find hot wire... there will be 1 hot wire entering gang box.
Disconnect all wires, and separate for testing.
Turn power on and test each wire to bare ground wire... that will show the hot wire.

Sorry it is difficult to post question on fixya, or communicate with people answering free questions.

How to connect three gang switch to control three lights, using two 1mm double core


What is 1mm double core?
Following image shows example 120Volt 4 gang switches with outlet.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Single-pole-switches-in-4-g.jpg
Each 120Volt electrical box has one Hot wire. This is true for ceiling and wall boxes.
Normally in a gang box, the Hot wire jumpers across all devices in the box.
Some switch boxes do not have Neutral wire. Neutral wires are usually white, and are twisted together and covered with wire nut and shoved to back of box.
Open following links for typical 120V and 240V circuits in US.
http://waterheatertimer.org/B220C.html
http://waterheatertimer.org/See-inside-main-breaker-box.html

Feel free to add a comment and describe wiring, and voltage.
For example if hot wire arrives from one of the lights.
Describe the wires that you have, and what each wire goes to for best possible answer.

The Casablanca 88U33M Scandia Ceiling Fan only has three wires, a black, a white, and a green wire (ground). How do you wire the fan and light on seperate switches?


If you want to control both the light and the fan using 3-ways, then just wire 2 sets of the 3-way circuits. For this you need two sets of 3-wire between the switches, and one 3-wire cable from the switch location to the fan/light box.

At box #1 (a 2 gang box), you will run a power cable (marked cable #1) into it. From there you run 2 sets of 3-wire cables (identified as cable #2 & cable #3) to the other switch location, which will also be a 2-gang box (box #2).

Also from box #1, you will run a 3-wire cable (cable #4) to the fan/light box (box #3).

Hook up is as follows:

Box #3: connect black of cable #4 to black (fan), connect red of cable #4 to blue (light), connect white of cable #4 to white (fan/light), and connect the bare to the green.

Box #2: Connect white of cable #2 to identified terminal on 1st 3-way switch (#3). Connect red & black of cable #2 to the remaining screws of 3-way switch #3. Next connect white of cable #3 to identified terminal of 2nd 3-way switch (#4), and connect black and red to remaining screws. Tie all grounds together and terminate to both switches.

At box #1, connect black from cable #1 to whites in cables #2 & #3, using a wirenut. Connect white in cable #1 to white in cable #4. Connect black and red in cable #2 to 3rd 3-way switch (#1) and connect black and red in cable #3 to 4th 3-way switch (#2). Connect black in cable #4 to identified terminal of 3-way switch #1, and connect red in cable #4 to identified terminal on 3-way switch #2. Tie all grounds together and to the switches

Hi expert: I am installing intermatic P1353me digital pool or spa mechanism and having trouble to figure out how to do this heater Firemen Switch connection. My existing pool timer is T104 and there were...


1) Fireman's switch automatically turns off heater few minutes before turning off pump.
Not all pool timers have fireman's switch.
If old timer did not have it, then don't worry about it.
P1353 has wires marked for fireman's switch, so simply don't use them if you don't want to.
http://waterheatertimer.org/pdf/Intermatic-P1353-manual.pdf
page 21 of manual shows wiring for fireman's switch.

2) T104 and P1353 comparison
Difference 1: T104 turns OFF both hot wires, while P1353 turns Off 1 hot wire.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Compare-120-and-240.html
Difference 2: T104 controls 1 240V load with 1 time schedule, while P1353 controls 3 different 240V loads, each with different time schedule.
Check that wire(s) coming from breaker can handle all 3 loads.
http://waterheatertimer.org/Color-codewire.html

3) 240Volt T104 is wired as follows:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/T-104-240-Volt-400.jpg
Hot1 from breaker connects to T104 terminal 1
Hot2 from breaker connects to T104 terminal 3
There is constant power on terminals 1 and 3, each terminal has 120V when combined makes the 240V circuit.
Load1 wire connects to T104 terminal 2
Load2 wire connects to T104 terminal 4
Terminals 2 and 4 have power whenever timer turns ON

4) Definition:
In electric wiring, Line means power from breaker, and Load means wire going to light,fan, motor, pump.

5) Converting T104 to P1353
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/P1353-timer-350.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/P1353-terminals-566.jpg
Hot1 from breaker connects to P1353 terminal 1
Hot2 from breaker connects to P1353 terminal 2
This will power timer electronics and timer clock and switches.

Jumper wire is placed from Hot1 at terminal 1 to each Line terminals 3 5 and 7.
This will put power at the switch, and when switch turns ON, then power will flow from Line wires to Load wires and then on to the Load.
Load 1 connects to terminal 4, Load 2 connects to terminal 6, Load 3 connects to terminal 8
To complete each 240V circuit, Hot2 is connected directly to each Load.

6) You say 'salt' system connects to terminals 1 and 3 on T104, then those wires are carrying constant 240V to that device. So Salt system connects to terminals 1 and 2 on P1353

7) Get a second opinion:
I frequently contact Intermatic for various problems.
P1353 is fairly new product, and manual is long, and I might not fully understand your problem or wiring.
Intermatic answers their email.

Also take advantage of fixya phone service.

You need to determine where the power is coming into the box. That power line needs to be jumpered to each switch. The black of the lights will go to the other side of each switch. All neutral wires are tied together.

I am trying to install a 2 way gang switch, i have put the two red wires in the bottom terminals the black and yellow in the right terminals, but they are not working two way, i have a spare blue wire...


There is no simple answer. It all depends where your feed is and which switch is the "point". The point is the black wire bringing switched power to the fixture. Both the point, and the feed will be on the top black terminal on one or the other THREE way switches. The travelers go to the bottom two terminals and the neutral, usually white wire, just splices through. I hope this helps.

Wiring two circuit pull switch boat lights


3 terminals.. 1 power input & 2 x outputs

Main positive goes to 1 terminal = power in to switch.

The anchor goes to another terminal = power out from switch to anchor

3rd terminal is another output for lights/anchor.
