Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.
Can you post how you wired the light to the switch combo unit? Power is at the light and ran a new cable to the switch combo, correct? A 14/3 with ground cable?
Or is it 2 separate items, one switch and one receptacle?
Sorry for the delay in responding. There are two white and two black wires feeding the light. I threw away the sketch I did to use for wiring it and have already covered the light area where I connected. I'd have to open the light back up and right now there are other workers doing a bath tub enclosure install in there and I can't get to it. But basically, I wired the separate GCFI and separate light switch as if there were subsequent/multiple outlets and "jumped" from the switch to the outlet. I also used a white or neutral wire as a live line into the light. I think it is all screwed up.
Also, if you could tell me how to do it from scratch from the light, I can re-do it. It will just be later this week before I can get back to it.
Ok, let me put a diagram together and post for you to look at for questions. Give me just a min to complete
I assumed the switch and receptacle were in the same box. If they are in 2 separate boxes let me know and I can modify.
They are in the same box. What is the red wire? It would help me understand which wires are white and black. I understand about connecting the ground. Thanks.
The red wire is what is in a 3 wire cable. 3 wire cable has a red, black,white and ground.
The white is more of a gray in the diagram, because white doesnt show in a white background
If you only have 2 wire cable with black and white, then wire it up with the below diagram. You have to run 2 cables with htis setup.
Thank you! I get it now.
I have reviewed the answer and thanked you.
