3, Light Switching, Cable Colours Wiring Throughout Diagram - From what i've examine, now and again they could connect c's black wire to position three (the opposite pink live wires) and then c's purple twine will be the switched-live return from the transfer. Connecting the black to the reds would make it apparent to an electrician and that is probably why no cord had red-tape on it's quit. However most electricians will not have cable type c with two purple wires and will have used everyday cable with a black and a pink wire and will put red tape around the end of the black cord to signify it's far "switched stay" and no longer neutral (as it's black color could advocate).
I then rewired it with out the single black twine and the mild got here on but it may not flip off with the aid of the light switch. The simplest manner to turn it off is with the aid of the principle breaker. I've changed the mild switch thinking it might have been faulty but that failed to solve the problem. Thanks replies paul. 1) a dimmer switch is most effective used to govern lighting and never a wall receptacle. You point out the following......."The dimmer switch is , it's also led bulbs". How many wall places can the transfer flip the mild fixture on & off? 2) so the wall switch container includes three whites, three blacks and three bare copper grounds? Need affirmation as to the exact wire count number and twine colorings inside the wall switch box?.
Five) the naked copper floor receives terminated without delay to the packing containers (if they're steel) and to the green grounding conductors or green ground screw on the dimmer switch. If the packing containers are % plastic, then use a naked copper or green pigtail to splice them together. !. What i did in the beginning is joined all the black collectively and related them to the impartial of the ceiling mild and the red to the stay and the green to the earth but that triggered the breaker to interrupt. You should not ought to contact the mild transfer in any respect. If you visit the first junction container, monitor all of the copper ends ensuring that they're no longer touching. Carefully shut the breaker, and use a multimeter to discover your "warm" lead. This hot lead ought to be linked to the white lead that ends in your mild switch, and the black lead that is linked to your light transfer is now your new "hot" lead. Reconnect that to the rest of your black leads and you will fix the hassle. If you are having problem finding which black and white wires visit your light switch, simply turn your mild transfer to "on" and discover which two black and white wires have continuity (assuming you disconnected all wires).
