There are three basic types of light switches. The initial is a simple, single light button.
The most convenient method for three-way switches is to place the light in between the two switches. You have to look very closely at an electric wiring representation to understand.
The cable ought to be 12.2 Romex right as much as the initial button, then run 12.3 Romex to the light and afterwards on the 2nd button. The 12.3 Romex has an added cord called a vacationer (normally red), which is essential for 3-way switches.
At the initial button, the 12.2 Romex from the circuit run gets in all-time low of the button box and also the hot (black) cable connects to the bottom right terminal on the button.
The 12.3 Romex gets in with the top of the button box. The hot traveler (red) cord connects to top left terminal on the button. The black (hot) cord connects to the top right terminal on the button.
The 12.3 neutral (white) cord connects directly to the 12.2 neutral cord with cord nuts and also the copper ground cables are additionally connected along with cord nuts. At the light box, you need to have two ends of 12.3 Romex hanging around. One end originates from the initial button the other end originates from the 2nd button.
Link the copper ground cables with each other with a wire nut to get them out of the method, and also then attach the two red traveler cables with each other with a wire nut.
Currently locate the black cord coming from the white cord and also the initial box coming from the 2nd box and also attach them with each other with cord nuts. It is common method for 3 and also 4-way switches.
Currently, at the 2nd button, you will attach the red traveler cord to the top left terminal. The white, cord currently identified as black with tape, connects to the upper right terminal. The black cord will attach to the reduced right terminal screw. If it's a steel box or the environment-friendly ground screw on the button if the box is plastic, the copper cord will attach to the box.
The light box need to currently have a black cord and also a white cord sticking out which is what you will need to attach the light to. The hot traveler (red) cord connects to top left terminal on the button. The black (hot) cord connects to the top right terminal on the button.
Currently, at the 2nd button, you will attach the red traveler cord to the top left terminal. The copper cord will attach to the box if it's a steel box or the environment-friendly ground screw on the button if the box is plastic.
