Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.
What is the model number of the switch?
im not where the switch is but it is a 277 volt
is it a toggle style switch?
sorry, got knocked out and back now
ok, on a toggle style 277 volt switch, it should only have 2 screw terminals,
One for power and one for the light leg
277 volt is a single wire and not like 240 where it takes 2 wires
the light is 240 the switch say 277 I have all types of switches
Ok, a 277 volt switch is not made for 240 volt lights
240 volt light needs a double pole switch
This one has only to connection points
277 volt is a single pole
two connection points is for 277 and you need 4, a double pole
for your 240 volt
I have that also
Ok, if you have a double pole switch, then it should have 4 screws
yes I do
2 screws will be one color and 2 screws another color, like 2 black and 2 brass
power in connects to the black screws and the light to the brass screws
ok, so I should use a 2 wire ground
2 wires with a ground, correct
Thanks just want to be sure
ok, glad to assist
