    I'm trying to replace a ceiling light with a ceiling fan. I'm not sure how the fan connects to the mount. Maybe someone can help me out?

    I have a Leviton motion sensor switch I want to use. The switch in my garage is a rocker light switch, not one of the older ones. It goes to a fluorescent light with the long light tubes, not a regular bulb light fixture. Is there a reason why it wouldn't be changeable to the motion sensor? I...

    We are thinking of installing new ceiling lights, in Standard 10 feet ceiling. We originally have 4 inch diameter light in the hallway. My son would keep the door open to prevent getting hot, however this hallway light was hitting the side, peripheral of his eye, very small and lot of light...

    Hello everyone, I previously had an old light installed in my kitchen and I am now putting up a new light. I have the wires exposed from the ceiling showing two red wires pigtailed. Two blacks pigtailed. Two whites separated (one has a black strip on the insulation.) It looks like I would have 3...

    Looking for tips on how to keep the lantern level on the pole? It fits over the top of the pole but there are a few millimeters of space between the lantern top and the pole base so it wiggles. There's some snap on looking things and a hole for a screw. I guess I could try finding a black...

    This may or may not be another welding project. Okay it is mostly welding but since a majority of us have to stay at home right now I thought to myself it’s a good time to go through the scrap pile and make something without going to the store. We are planning on remodeling out...

    Hi guys! Hopefully this won't be a mouthful, so my step dad helped me replace a ceiling fan in my master bedroom which had 3 single pole light switches to begin with. Well, the light turned on with one switch, the fan with the other, and the last one didn't do anything just like before. But...

    Hi, I found this post by hammerlane https://www.diychatroom.com/f18/3-way-switch-single-pole-switch-148603/index2/#post955962 I have the same wiring scenario, except where this diagram shows how to remove the "end" switch I want to remove the "middle" switch. How do I do that?

    Hi all. I just bought some cheap floor lamps at Walmart that were on deep discount, and the main lamp has a 3 way socket. I want to change the socket to a standard because, 3 way LED's are expensive, and I don't like running the 3 way Incan's in the warmer months because of the heat. I...

    Hello everyone! I bought a new home and I am planning to install under cabinet kitchen lights. Because I don't want to make any opening, I am considering the option of wireless control. I have easy access to connect the lights to the existing outlets, but to control them, the only option is to...

    Hello, I bought the device below thinking that the switch turns whatever is plugged in on/off. I think I am mistaken; the switch is intended for operating a separate light with it's own power. Is there a way to wire this so that it does what I wanted? For example, I want to plug in a lamp...

The replacement switch is one unit that has two multi-setting swtiches for each the fan/light. Current switch is wired three black...

    I am a homeowner and I don't know much about electricity other than basic wiring. I was replacing some ceiling light fixtures today and I am unsure of the existing wiring situation. There are 4 wires coming into the box. Each with a black, white, & ground (12 individual wires). The way that it...

    Hi, I have an outdoor wall light (see picture here: https://imgur.com/a/Q2mOz) that turns on via a switch. When I switch it on, it comes on for 5 seconds, then shuts off on its own. I have to turn the switch off, wait a few seconds and then switch it on for it to work again. But again, it only...

    Hi Everyone, I looked but couldn't seem to see anything about this. We bought a house this month January 2018 and a new microwave had to be installed before the purchase because it didn't function. Last night I went to turn the light on. I pressed the LIGHT button and it said FULL. I pressed...

    Hello. I have a LG LRFC22750ST refrigerator. Few months back, inside lights for the refrigerator worked intermittently and now, it's completely not working. I put in new light bulbs but that didn't do anything. I was also suspecting bad door switches but since the unit has french doors, it's...

    Hi - Hoping someone can assist with this. I'll try to provide as much information as possible. The light fixture i'm replacing works fine and has probably been in place for 30 years +. I recently replaced the switch and now am looking to replace the actual light fixture. I'll try to attach...

    Hello! Thanks to everyone who is contributing to this forum and making it possible. What I'm wondering is if anyone on here has bought a dome (not tubular) skylight roughly 33" x 33" (clear). I've really only found something like that on obscure websites through searching... I'm only looking...

    I attempted to replace a ceiling fan/light fixture in our kitchen. The old unit was controlled by a wall switch for the light and the pull chain for the fan. Out of the ceiling are a white, black, and red wire. The new fan/light only has a white and black wire and is meant to be controlled with...
