Switched outlet to one switched and one constant

Reply Sat 21 Nov, 2015 03:08 pm
I have a two plug receptacle with is controlled by two switches. There is only on 14/2 wire going to the receptacle, so I am assuming the hot leads are going to the switches. Is there a way to make one of the plugs controlled by the switch and the other a constant feed? Maybe by breaking the buss bars on both sides of the receptacle adding another hot feed to the constant plug and hooking the switch wires up to the other plug side? It sounds like it would work to me but I just wanted to be sure that I am not missing something safety wise.

Is there a way

Prim, your q is not entirely clear. But yes, assuming both circuits in duplex receptacle controlled by either switch, but be sure to remove its tie strip or tab

As to rewiring details I'd ordinarily refer you to Google. However, terms aren't well defined and because you might wind up electrocuting yourself perhaps you should enlist a buddy more familiar with this sort of thing
