3 way switch with pass through power connection issue
I had decided to change my dining room light from a single to a dual switch. The switch locations were on opposite sides of the room, so I decided to hook it up using a circuit where the light was in the middle.
I opened up the light box, and was surprised to see not only the original switch, but 2 other connections in the box. I cannot see the entire circuit for either connection, but one has to be the power, and there is another that continues on to connect with my kitchen light circuit. I will call this one other.
The way it was wired (when everything worked):
switch black to light black.
power white to other white to light white
power black to other black to switch white.
I have successfully gotten both of the 3 way switches to work perfectly, having been very happy about this I started putting things away, etc, but come to find out that the kitchen lights no longer work.
What I did to wire the 3 way switches was:
switch A red to switch B red
switch A white to switch B white (both taped black)
Power black to other black
Power white to other white to light white
Switch B black to light black
My question is, is although this works for my 3 way switched, is this correct, or is this somehow throwing off the power connection to my kitchen lights (along the "other" cable)?
When I check the power/other black connection and power/other white connection with my voltage meter it has power. However when I check the other end of that cable, it does not. I don't see anything wrong with the cable itself.
