Question about Eagle 271w-box Switch 15 Amp 120-277 Volt Toggle
The Eagle 271 is designed to switch two, separate circuits. If you only have a black & a white wire in the wall, then it sounds like you only have one switching circuit in there.
You could use the device you have if you want. Connected the black wire to one of the dark screws, and the white wire to either the brass or the shiny screw (just pick one). This will make one light switch work, and the other light switch will be solely for decoration.
(NOTE: I AM ASSUMING THAT THIS IS REPLACING AN EXISTING SWITCH, IF THIS BOX PREVIOUSLY HAD A RECEPTACLE IN IT, THAT WHITE WIRE WILL BE A NEUTRAL AND WILL CAUSE THE BREAKER TO TRIP IF HOOKED UP TO A SWITCH).
If you used to be able to switch two, separate circuits from this switch box, and you only see the black & white wire, then I hate to tell you, it sounds like you lost a wire in the wall.
