Adding some undercabinet puck lighting and want to check on how to best add it to the existing circuit.
My plan is to replace an existing box with a single pole controlling my overhead kitchen light with a double-gang box with two single-poles...one for the existing and a second for the lighting. The location of the box is about a foot from the where the lights and their transformer are actually going.
The existing setup in the box is:
Set 1 in/out: Black/Red/White
Set 2 in/out: White/Black
The existing switch gets the red on one terminal, which is the end of the run on that red, and the black on the other terminal, which is one branch off a nut, the other one of wihch keeps going out. The white goes in and via a nut straight out.
Would appreciate any help on how to add in the new switch, obviously intended to be controlled totally seperate from the existing switch.
Worked perfectly thanks!
Only challenges were dealing with a new work box that was attached to a stud that couldn't be undone without more holes in the drywall and making pigtails...which I don't seem to have mastered.
