Creative Wiring A Light Fixture With 3 Sets Of Wires Images - Five) the bare copper floor receives terminated directly to the packing containers (if they may be metal) and to the inexperienced grounding conductors or inexperienced ground screw on the dimmer switch. If the containers are % plastic, then use a naked copper or green pigtail to splice them collectively. !.

It just looks like your wires going down to your switch are blended up. We in electric have a announcing "lower back on black". That manner it's simpler to see which wires cross where to your light (as in there would be one black cord and one white twine watching for you in the container to connect to your mild).

Thank you replies paul. 1) a dimmer transfer is simplest used to control lighting fixtures and by no means a wall receptacle. You mention the following......."The dimmer switch is , it is also led bulbs". How many wall places can the transfer flip the light fixture on & off? 2) so the wall switch container incorporates three whites, 3 blacks and three bare copper grounds? Need affirmation as to the precise cord rely and cord colours inside the wall switch container?.

Thanks endurance paul! 1) proven beneath is the wiring diagram based totally on the quantity of twine sets which you have in the wall switch container and the mild fixture field. 2) the 1st cable set is the recent circuit feed (hot & impartial from panel) which originates in the mild fixture field. The 2nd cable set extends from the mild fixture field out to the receptacle box. The third cable set extends from the mild fixture box returned to the wall transfer container. Therefore, three cable units living inside the light fixture box and 1 cable set in the dimmer switch box. 3) because romex changed into used, the white twine inside the dimmer transfer box could be a hot cord feeding into the dimmer transfer and it is going to be spliced to the hot circuit black cord at the mild fixture box. Since this white is being used as a hot conductor, you will want to re-become aware of it using black electricians tape on each ends of this white cord. This white will splice to two of the black wires in the fixture field. Do now not splice this white wire onto the alternative institution of white wires. Leaving the dimmer switch may be the black twine and this can extend to the mild fixture black twine. This black twine is the switched loop cord. The white neutral from the mild fixture receives spliced in the fixture field to the alternative group of white wires. For that reason you will have 3 whites spliced collectively in the fixture box. Leaving the fixture container can be the cable set going to the receptacle. Four) whilst terminating the dimmer transfer, the breaker have to be in the off role. In any other case the dimmer switch can without difficulty be fried because of the touchy electronics inner.
