Hey, I'm wire in a basement bathroom I have a 4 gang box with 4 switches
1 is for overhead lights
2 is for vanity
3 is for fan
4 is for shower light
A diagram would be great but any help would be appreciated Thanks.
Sorry I have a basement renovation. I'm starting with the bathroom My question is how do I run these 4 switches. I have a power source coming in to the bathroom and how do I wire these 4 fixtures. Thanks
Want me to twist the wirenuts on for you? :laughing:
You have one cable bringing in power to the switch box and four cables taking power to the individual lights and fan.
You tie the bare wires together, you tie the whites together and you put 4 pigtails (6 to 8 inch pieces of black wire) on the hot.
It's five simple steps. Do them one at a time and you won't get confused.
Here's a tip. Run the power in cable into the left hand top of the sw box and run the switch leg cables into the box in th eopening directly above where you want the swithes to be. Your "make up" will be cleaner.
And don't cut your cables too short. Homeowners ALWAYS do this.:jester: Leave 12" to work with and cut the wires to size as necessary.
