Do you have a wall/light switch that is causing you some problems, or that you suspect might be faulty? Problems with a light switch is something most homeowners experience at one time or another. In this post I review three common light switch wiring problems, how to troubleshoot the actual cause of the wiring problem, and how to resolve it.
This 7-part video series demonstrates all the steps for how to wire a switch: from rough-in to finishing. The first video in the series explains how to properly strip cable.
In part two of the 7-part series on how to wire a switch, I explain and demonstrate how to install the cables into a multi-gang box. The video focuses on steps that will both save time and simplify the process.
Proper grounding (earthing, bonding) methods are critical to ensuring the integrity of your electrical system. In part three of my 7-part video series on how to wire a switch, I demonstrate the proper way to connect the ground wires.
Making a proper splice is a basic skill that you must have in order to properly complete most tasks when it comes to electrical work. This video demonstrates proper methods for splicing the neutral conductors when wiring a switch.
Part five of this 7-part video series on how to wire a switch: from rough-in to finishing, demonstrates the proper splicing and pigtailing the hot conductors for installation in a multi-gang box.
