There is a black wire and white wire running from blower to limit switch. On limit switch there is a black, white, and green wire running to switch on wall. How do I hook those 3 up to the switch so I can either run fan manually or auto? Do I need to 'pigtail' on the wall switch?
1. Power is located at single pole switch on wall
2. the blower is wired to the limit switch and limit switch has the following coming from it to the wall switch
3. I have a black wire, 2 white wires, and a green coming from the limit switch that I'm trying to figure how to connect to single pole on wall. this was wired correctly several years ago and worked fine. Using the single pole switch, I could operate blower either manually or auto. However, the connections in the single pole switch from the limit switch were taken apart and not recorded. The wall switch has the hot wire coming from the panel along with the neutral. The hot wire is connected to the pole on the wall switch for the hand operation of the blower, with the black wire connected so that a 'pigtail' can be attached to it. The pole on the wall switch for the auto operation doesn't have any wires attached.
I really appreciate the diagram Tommy. That is a big help! One last question just so I understand. There is no green wire coming from blower, however, there is a green wire coming from limit switch. Should that go to ground pin on wall switch? Thank you again!
