Re: I changed light switch now no power in 2 rooms
Thanks i switched things out, i thought everything was fine now the hallway light doesn't work, smh. This diy has been a disaster because every time i take a deep breath after it looks like i successfully repaired something we find out something else all of a sudden isn't functioning proper.
Tracks of my tears
Installed a new GFCI receptacle in bathroom.
switched receptacle in guests room, new one wasn't working on the bottom, only spare i had was a tamper resistant one. i installed.
I switched old light switch in main bedroom with a new style light switch. After testing i thought i was good to go. Then an hour later my mom ask me why the hall light wouldn't come on. Someone told me to calm down i'm freaking out....These are the reasons why...i do my homework, read, watch tutorials, i know my limitations, i thought changing light switches and receptacles was smooth sailing. As usual i fix something and screw something else up.
i've checked everything i changed, the only thing i haven't changed is....the last time the hall light worked was before i installed GFCI receptacle. i'm thinking when everyone is gone i'll take the GFCI receptacle out and wrap the wires in electrical tape.
One other observation....the light switch i changed in master bedroom had 3 wires and they all looked the same (black coating) i found the hot and assumed the only end that was looped must've been ground. The light switch is working properly. thanks
