electrical question


Can I install a 3 ways lighted dimmer to control one light? If I can, how do I install it? I saw the dimmer has 2 black wires, one red and 1 green, while the light only has 1 black, 1 white, and one bare wire. The source also has 1 black, 1 white and 1 bare wire. Thank you very much. Thu.

electrical question


seems like you have a single switch location, can't use a 3way dimmer, get a single pole dimmer

Thank you. Yes, I did that and it worked. I bought the 3 circuits one since it was on sale, but could not use it, like you said. Thank you anyway.
