There are 3 basic kinds of light buttons. The initial is a simple, single light switch.
The most convenient means for three-way buttons is to position the light between the two buttons. You need to look carefully at an electrical circuitry representation to comprehend.
The cord must be 12.2 Romex right as much as the initial switch, after that run 12.3 Romex to the light then on to the second switch. The 12.3 Romex has an added cord called a tourist (usually red), which is essential for 3-way buttons.
At the initial switch, the 12.2 Romex from the circuit run enters the bottom of the switch box as well as the hot (black) cord connects to the bottom ideal terminal on the switch.
The 12.3 Romex enters via the top of the switch box. The hot traveler (red) cord connects to leading left terminal on the switch. The black (hot) cord connects to the leading ideal terminal on the switch.
The 12.3 neutral (white) cord connects straight to the 12.2 neutral cord with cord nuts as well as the copper ground cords are additionally linked along with cord nuts. At the light box, you ought to have 2 ends of 12.3 Romex hanging around. One end comes from the initial switch the various other end comes from the second switch.
First connect the copper ground cords along with a wire nut to obtain them off the beaten track, then connect the two red traveler cords along with a wire nut too.
Now locate the black cord coming from the white cord as well as the initial box coming from the second box as well as connect them with each other with cord nuts. It is usual practice for 3 as well as 4-way buttons.
Now, at the second switch, you will connect the red traveler cord to the leading left terminal. The white, cord now labeled as black with tape, connects to the upper ideal terminal. The black cord will connect to the reduced ideal terminal screw. If it's a metal box or the environment-friendly ground screw on the switch if the box is plastic, the copper cord will connect to the box.
The light box ought to now have a white cord as well as a black cord protruding which is just what you will have to connect the light to. The hot traveler (red) cord connects to leading left terminal on the switch. The black (hot) cord connects to the leading ideal terminal on the switch.
Now, at the second switch, you will connect the red traveler cord to the leading left terminal. The copper cord will connect to the box if it's a metal box or the environment-friendly ground screw on the switch if the box is plastic.
