Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX I'm here to answer any of your electrical questions.
On the switch you have 1 red and 2 blacks? What color are the wires coming from your home to the switch?
Those are the colors from the home. The new dimmer has no wires - just place the ends of the wires in holes and tighten a screw.
What color are the screws on the dimmer?
Let me check
That is an image from the install directions
I put the red on the black and the 2 blacks on the gold ones
Take the red and black wires that are coming from the same cable (romex) and put them on the gold screws. Put the other wire, that's either coming from a separate cable or from a bundle of black wires on the black screw.
OK - I'll give that a shot.Thanks
No problem. Please rate once you have it set. If you need further help, I'll be here for you.
I will - thanks again
