Hi can you tell me what the 2 dimmer switches controlled............... the other just controlled the ceiling fan going on and off and it has a pull chain also?...............and if you could upload a couple of pictures of the 3 gang box one internal and one external........ it would help considerably

We can start here and with the info you provide I will add steps toward our target as we proceed by our correspondence

If by some reason a resolution to the problem just isn't possible, I will do my best to supply you with any remaining options, from what other resources I can find.

Please, since we take pride in our good reputations, and you might feel the need to choose a bad service rating, I ask that you stop and consider replying back to me with any of your concerns.

Please always allow me time to prepare information for you. In case I have to go offline I am always checking back to keep things moving and expedited.

And thank you for your help and assistance
