Hi Mark. Welcome to Just Answer.
I can't email you a sketch, per site regulations, but I can post one here. It will take me about 10 minutes or so to get it made up and posted. Will that work for you?
Very good. I have already started the sketch. I should be able to get it posted shortly. Will you be standing by?
OK, sounds good.
OK, it's done. Just need to post it.
I see that I forgot to show the wire nut for the white wires. Sorry about that.
Let me know when done
Are you not able to view the sketch?
I thought that you were going to make changes
OK, I know where the white wire nut goes. No need to change it.
Just the wire nut for the white wires. I just popped it in. I can re-post the sketch if you like.
No , I got it
OK, does it look like something that will be easy for you to follow?
Looks great. I will try it tomorrow and let you know.
No problem. Thank you for the opportunity to help.
Are you sure the white one goes to the outlet? why not the black?
The black wasn't hot, if I recall your original post. The white is a neutral, and every outlet needs a neutral to work.
Black may be a switched hot, but you wouldn't want that for an outlet that you want to be constantly live.
