Question about Leviton 1755 Triple Rocker Switch Decora

Have a light, fan & heater. In the process of remodeling the bathroom, I disconnected the 3 function switch. I hooked it up as it was, but now none of the functions work. The breaker is thrown when I try to turn them on. What is my problem?

Hello sandman, STOP!! Dont do anything else until you kill the bathroom breaker in the breaker box
located by your elect meter. Got it off? Now get a shop light, flashlight, even a lamp w/ext cord.
Position the light so you can see the wires coming out of the wall for switch. The black wires are
the hot ones & the white ones are the return(no power) You have wired your new switch incorrectly
causing the breaker to trip. Check how you have wired the new switch. You neeed one black & one
white wire for each function of the switch. If there is a green wire, it,s for grounding the switch.
Some newer switches have install info stamped on the switch. Kinda hard to see sometme.
Let me know. Happy wiring.......................dansky66

First thing is to mark each wire how it was connected to old switch.
Note color of screw that wire connected to on old switch.

Color code of screws is key.

Next, separate wires for testing.
Turn power ON.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks to keep hands safe.
Stand on dry surface.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
One and only 1 wire will light up tester. This is hot wire from breaker.

Look at new switching device.
There should be brass screws on one side and 3 silver screws on other side.
Hot wire connects to brass screw.

Connect your Hot wire.
Finally connect each other wire one-by-one to the silver screws and test by turning on power and flipping switch.

If above information fails, then add some photos with your question so I can see wiring, old switch, new switch and color of screws.

you will need to determine what amps the timer switch is rated for, and what are the rated amps for the light/fan/heater. More then likely you will need to buy a new timer switch which is rated for the correct amps. Hope this helps Tim

A Bryant 3 way independent rocker switch with red, black and white wires for 3 lights in bathroom one switch not working can i replace it with a Broan Nutone P66V three function control


397bfdd.jpgLeviton triple switch
fe442eb.jpgNutone P66V

Nutone looks like an ordinary three-switch combo being marketed as a bathroom 'fan switch.'
The screws on the device would tell the story.

Look at the Leviton screws:
The switch has dark-colored screw on one side >> the hot from breaker always connects to dark screws.
Other side of switch has 3 silver-colored screws, but these can be brass colored screws > the wires to fan light and heater connect to each of these screws.

Most likely the Nutone switch is identical to the Leviton
I say this because the descriptor on Amazon describes it as a 'fan' switch.
It's being marketed as a bathroom fan-light combo switch >>> so it looks like an ordinary three-combo switch

I know wiring and we can solve this problem.

A better description of your wires in required.
Then 'add a comment' at bottom of page, and it e-mails me, and then I can hook up the wires for you.
The following 8 questions are key to solving the problem.

The heater-fan-light has how many wires?
Exactly what color are the fan wires?

How many cables enter the fan-light-heater box?
Does each cable have a black-and-white?
Are all these cables from the switches?
Are there other cables that enter the fan-light-heater box?
How many switches control the fan-light-heater device?
Is each switch a simple on-off switch or are there 3-way switches too (a switch at each end of a hall is example of a 3-way switch)

If you 'add a comment' I'll be here for next 3-4 hours
We'll get it done

Ok you only have two switches, so you would use one switch for your bathroom light, and the other for both the fan and the light, the light will come on when you turn the fan on.Connect the incoming black (hot) wire to both switches. Then connect the black wire to the switch you want for your light. Connect the other black to the second switch that goes to your fan and light. Connect the three white wires together (neutral) Connect all ground wires together, and leave a pigtail to connect to the ground terminal on the light switch. If you want separate switches for light in the fan and fan, you will need another conductor and a three gang switch.

Triple rocker switch to control 3 function bathroom fan/light


I suggest you cut 3 pigtails out of your black wire (about 5-6" each and strip them so you can put a nut to tie them all together on the main wire, then do the same for your grounds using green 5-6" strips of wire and then connect all 3 switches with the pigtails to their proper locations. This WILL fix your problem.

Arc fault breaker trips sporadically


Are there any heaters anywhere in the circuit for this breaker? (ie: bathroom fan w/light and heater) If yes, I would suspect and inspect them first. Also,any type breaker will trip more easily if the electrical connection screws on the breaker are not tight enough...check to make sure that's not the case.

Wiring Bathroom light/vent/heater switch with 3 separate controls


Wiring a bathroom combination vent, heater, light 3 way switch means more wires. In brief, you need to run two cables - one a two wire and one a three wire from the switch to the fan.

Incoming power will have white black and ground.

The two wire cable for the switch to the fan will have wht, blk, and ground.

The three wire will have red, blk, wht, and grnd.

The switch will likely have 2 blacks and a red coming from it, with two blacks and a red on one side, and a single black on the other.

The fan should have a red, blue, green, black, and white.

On the fan end: Group all green/copper grounds together and use a wire nut to fasten them together. Tape the nut to the wires.
There will be five white wires coming through. For ease of handling, using wire nuts, connect two on one nut and three on the other.
connect the blue to a blck. Connect one red to one black, and the other red to the other black.

The switch will have one red going into the 3 wire cable, a black going to the 3 wire cable, and a black form incoming power to the side opposite the 3 wires, and a blck going to the two wire cable.

There. Confused?

Not a 3 wire cable


It's asking for a ground wire. Run a small wire from the green wire on the fan and ground it to the electrical box.
