hi i am eletrician from macedonia and i do the same job like you.
the wiring is the same but i work with 220v
Curious it’s so difficult to get the wires wrapped around the screws on a light switches Is there another way like push the wire through the space on the back of the switch and tighten down on the wire. I was told that how it should be done
I have power going to a light then a switch. Can I run a wire from that switch to another light and how do I do it?
Hi i would like more information on electrical installation, please send it in my box
thank you for giving the information in diagrammatic form..its easy and i gone through this process by keeping this switch
Nice illustration of basic light switch.
i am moving a light switch and need help
Trying to hook up an outside light that hasn’t been hooked up for some time. Inside the box that holds the light there are two white wires that are capped separately, two black wires that are entwined and capped together. Then there’s a couple ground wires both seem to be coming from the top and only one is capped. The house had some rewiring done some time ago but outdoor light hasn’t worked since. The switch has a black wire and a white wire attached to it and the wire appears to be running up the wall toward the light fixture. When we hooked up the light as per manufacturer directions we added the light’s black wire to the other two black wires in the box and attached the white wire from the light to the white wire coming from the top of the fixture box and left the other white wire capped. The light came on but the switch did not turn it off. We tried attaching both the white wires from the house to the white wire of the lamp but as soon as we turned on the switch the fuse popped off. I will appreciate any advice you might be able to offer.
Thank you for the very easy to follow tips. Helped me out with some basic wiring problems I had.
Trying to wire up three seperate light switchs with one hot wire coming into box.
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.
