Welcome. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist. Wireitup is not online at the moment
So, does the dimmer have only 2 connections and a ground?
And the old switch you are replacing has only 2 terminals, one wire goes into the wall and the other actually connects to a switch next to it?
ok, do you have actual model number?
thanks, XXXXX XXXXX get those specs
On the existing switch, that wire that connects to the switch next to it, that is the HOT wire
So remove that wire from the switch and connect to the Black wire on the dimmer
The wire that goes into the wall from the existing switch, will connect to the RED wire on the dimmer
that is correct on the green and ground
The Red/White stripe wire on the dimmer, you will cap it off and tape it. Nothing will connect to it.
ok, great. That wire is only used when you replace a 3 way switch.
yes, it should work perfectly. Make sure you wire it up with Power OFF, dimmers can be damaging if connected while power is ON>
Anything further, let me know, just reply
