I have some switches I am going to replace. I am having a hard time figuring out how to wire these. None of the pictures I find online are the way mine are wired. I have 3 light switches that need to be replaced that control one light.
One switch is wired with 2 white wires tied together wirenutted, 2 red wires on one side of the switch and 2 black wires on one side of the switch. And grounds tied together.
I can't find any illustrations where 2 red wires are on one side of the switch.
Next switch is a "dimmer" that has never worked. It has 1 red wire coming in the box, 2 black wires and 2 white wires and grounds. Is this a 3-way switch?
Look up how to wire a three way light switch, that should put you on the right track.
Not sure on the dimmer switch.
