Wiring Diagrams. Monday , October 16th , 2017 - 22:04:31 PM
While it is true that 120 volts can possibly kill you, it is also true that by following some basic safety rules and techniques, the chances of that happening are highly unlikely. Now that you feel better, let’s go over the rules for handling electrical wiring.
While this should go without saying, we will say it anyway...always shut off the power before beginning any electrical wiring work. You can do this by shutting off the breaker connected to the circuit you would like to work on. Just about all distribution panels have a diagram or schedule displayed that will let you know which circuit is connected to which breaker, however, you may need to be careful in following these as they may be vague or changes might have been implemented by previous owners. It may take a little testing to find the right breaker, but it is time well spent.
3-Way Switches are used to control one or more fixtures from two locations. This is a common configuration in hallways and staircases. There are many ways to wire a 3-Way Switch. The power can start at a fixture or either of the two switches. Without a wiring diagram it can be very easy to make a serious mistake.
