Thanks everyone!

Nap, I will try those combinations tomorrow (when I have daylight again) and will let you guys know what happens! If anyone thinks of anything else at all, please let me know.

Thanks again!

I am taking it on faith she remembers which 3 wires were on the terminal screws. At least I hope she does. If not, she will trip a breaker with some of those combinations.

be sure to turn off the circuit breaker each time you change the connections.

Be sure to turn it back on when testing. (yes, been there, done that)

Just one thought---Get a tester and see if you have any power to the switch---

You may very well have cut the power to the switch when you snapped off all those tabs--

Just a thought---a cheap electrical tester is less than $3--
