Question about Cooper Wiring Devices Aspire Smart Dimmer Switch, Sand
1) If you are replacing a switch that has two wires, and your dimmer has two screws > then Connect these wires to either screw.
2) If you are replacing a switch that has two wires, and your dimmer has three screws > then Connect one wire to dark-colored screw, and connect other wire to either brass-colored screw.
3) If you are replacing a 3-way switch that has 3 wires > and your dimmer has three screws > then pay close attention: One of the wires on your existing switch is connected to dark-colored screw. Mark that wire. It connects to dark colored screw on dimmer. The other two wires connect to either screw. The dark-colored screw is called the common terminal.
IF you have already removed switch and do not know which wire was connected to dark-colored screw >>> then connect the wires to any screw on dimmer >> turn on power and check if the circuit works >> keep rotating wires until they arrive in the right order >> the circuit simply will not work until the to correct wire is connected to dark-colored screw
THE dark-colored screw is the key
