3 Way Home Wiring - Wiring Harness - I have a house (georgia, u.S.) And some kitchen renovations have revealed a few earlier electrical paintings and i'm looking to figure it out. At the start, there was a ceiling container in the kitchen with a fan/mild fixture managed by way of a pair of three-manner switches. One 3-manner switch become placed at the kitchen front to the garage and the opposite transfer became placed in a 2-gang box that it shared with a 2-manner transfer for a ceiling light in the dining area. The fan and mild did no longer have separate switches.
In some unspecified time in the future in the past, an exterior flood mild became delivered to the residence and the three-manner switch within the 2-gang field turned into changed with a duplex transfer. One transfer controls the light fixture and the other controls the outside flood light. The three-way switch at the storage front changed into abandoned and included with a cowl plate. And via abandoned, i mean the 'electrician' bent back the tabs at the transfer and shoved the whole transfer into the field). The overall layout looks like this:.
While renovating the kitchen, i found that the fan became installed to a shallow fan-rated field with wiring from it to a 2d non-fan-rated box that became simply laying at the insulation in the attic. I eliminated the ceiling fan and the containers (mentally noting the way it turned into all stressed) proceeding to rewire it (using a well sized single container) the following day. Because of circumstances past my manipulate, the paintings become not on time several weeks and i cannot recall the exact wiring. I spent multiple hours with my multimeter checking continuity to determine which twine become linked to what and that i assume that the kitchen ceiling field and a couple of-gang switch container appeared some thing like this:.
