Did you buy a "Three Way" dimmer switch?
You should get a small pack of red wire nuts.Two white wires, twisted and tied off with electrical tape.
The two wires (red and black) that are twisted together come from the top of the box--out of the left hand corner. (These seem to lead directly to the light fixture itself as it's above the box.)
Two wires that tested "hot" (black wires that are separate) come up from the box.
There was a small "jog wire?" (small piece of black wire) attached to one of the wires as well and it was attached to the old switch.
(I really appreciate all of the questions and help. Thanks for taking the time to read!)
What are you referring to as the "outlet?" Is the light fixture that these switches control mounted in a ceiling?Okay, I bought a 3 way dimmer switch and rewired. The switch is currently installed but a small buzzing noise is coming from the outlet when turned on.
Try changing the lamp inside the fixture.Nope, not ceiling. I'm using incorrect language. Buzzing is coming from the light, or around the light, on the wall above the switch. It might even be coming from the switch itself but it's hard to tell as they are very close. It only happens when the light is dimmed, when it's fully on the buzzing is gone.
