HERE'S THE SITUATION:
I have a 3-way, 30 amp wire coming from my fusebox and going to a light switch in my dining room. The wire then goes to a light switch at the top of the stairs to my basement. From there it goes to a third light switch in the basement for multiple lights in the ceiling.
I added pigtails to that third light switch and added 2, 15 amp outlets. When I was connecting the outlets, I simply turned off the second light switch at the top of the stairs. At the time I tested the wire to confirm there was no current.
I connected the socket and when I turned the light switch back on, I lost power to the entire circuit. All three light switches no longer had power.
I went back to the fuse box and nothing was tripped. The three way wire has power as it leaves the fuse box. But, the wires are dead at the first light switch. Any idea why? I'm really scratching my head.
Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!
here is the fuse box
here is the type of fuse box I have. I believe it's NC120 and NC115 fuses.
