Power Into Light – Switch Leg Down to Switch
Click on Image for Larger Size
How about 2 lights with the power coming in to the first light fixture?
In a 3-way circuit I presume? It can be done.
I took a 2 gang light switch off the wall and the cables just popped out. there are two switches…one each for 2 outside lights
There are just three red cables from the wall socket …the greens and others are joined inside the wall bax, plus there’s a small red cable used as a jumper. I can’t figure out how to re-connect as they popped out as I took off the cover — a pretty poor job in the first place!
The switch plate has two ‘pairs’ of terminals, obviously A,A1,A2 for one side then B,B1,B2 for the other. My guess is tha the live goes to say A and the small jump lead goes from A to B, then the other three cables? One to A1 one to B1. Where I am now is one side swithches the light on/off, and if they’re on, the other switch turns one of the lights on/off. What frustrating it that it seems to be just trial and error, but having to go to the fuse box, turn off, recoonect, turn the fuse box on and test …jeez, its frustrating
how to from the sourcs light fixture second light fixture then the switch
Can this diagram be used if you have more than one light? I’d like to run power into light 1, from light 1 to light 2, from light 2 to light 3, and then to the switch.
It is just putting more lights in parallel with the one above, correct?
This can all be done with 14/2, correct?
Can I use the same diagram if I have multiple lights?
For example, I’d like to have power into Light1, wiring to Light2, wiring to Light3, wiring to switch. The only thing that I do different is put the additional lights in parallel, correct? All can be done with 14/2, correct?
2 wires coming from light
2 wires from rotory switch
2 wires from wall plug
What is the correct diagram
source wiring is 14/3, 110v. I want to wire a light switch but what do I do with the red wire since the diagram shows only the black (hot) and white (neutral)?
can i add a light to an existing three way switch
you can add 4 lights, but theyre not going to work
not if brads doing it
I HAVE RAN THE SWITCH DOWN LEG TO SWITCH BUT HAVE TWO LIGHTS AND MY LIGHTS FLICKER ON ONE SIDE OF THE SWITCH AND ONLY ONE LIGHT WORKS ON THE OTHER WHAT AM I DOING WRONG?

The latest in my series of ‘Internet Electrician’ E-Books covers the use of a digital multi meter.
This is one of those ‘tried and true’ tools of the trade that electricians can’t imagine doing their job without.
