220/221...The two switches are in different boxes. Boycer...220/221 has a good idea about "hot wiring" the blacks to see if the lights work with no switch. How is the junction box wired? Should be your power wire coming in and a wire going to each switch. In the junction box the grounds should be tied together, the 3 whites tied together and the 3 blacks tied together. I'm not sure but you might have done something to the light bulbs if you crossed the blacks and whites. Before you put in the new dimmers do like mentioned and turn the circuit off and tie the black wires together and then turn circuit back on and the lights should turn on if wired correctly. Then if the lights work like this seperate the blacks and then install the dimmers. How are the can lights wired? Blacks tied together and whites tied together?
yes i tried hot wiring them and at one switch where 2 lights are controlled the lights work but at the other switch where the 6 are controlled they dont. i think i have a break in the neutral somewhere cause when i test the neutral with my voltage tester at the switch that doesnt work power comes on
