I have an older home built in the mid 60s. I remodeled my den/office and in doing so, moved an inconveniently placed set of light switches a few feet to the right to the other side of the door. Two switches, one for a celling fan and the other for a light. I marked everything carefully before disconnecting any wires (after killing the power
) there were four wires in the box..one from the fan, one from the light, one was the hot feed from the other outlets and the breaker box....there was also a single leg to an outlet below the switch box.
The feed wire came in with all four of the neutral wires tied together, and the black HOT wire was tied to the outlet and had a jumper wire going from them to the bottom screw on the light switch and then to the bottom screw on the fan switch. The black wires from the fan and light wires were attached to the TOP screw on their corresponding switches. All four of the ground wires were wire nutted together also.
I fished the wire down the wall on the other side of the door from the attic to the new box. I reconnected everything EXACTLY how it was before I took it off. Now the fan and everything else in the room works fine as it did before....
But the light won't come on and has constant feed to both sides of the switch, even with the switch in the OFF position. I thought the switch may be bad so I replaced it with a brand new one. Still constant hot on BOTH sides and the light still won't come on.
What did I do wrong??? HELP!!!!
