 How to wire a light switch.

 

By far the two most common types of light switch wiring are the familiar single pole variety, which controls one or more lights from one location, and the 3 way switch which allows you to turn lights off and on from two locations. To determine whether a switch is a single pole switch or a 3 way switch count its number of terminals flat screws on the side. A single pole switch will have two brass terminals and one green ground terminal, and a 3 way switch will have three brass terminals and a ground terminal. Most new switches also allow for connections via push in terminals at the back of the device. Unlike receptacles, switches are wired only with the hot (black) wires, which means they open and close the hot leg the black wire of a circuit to allow current flow to the light.

 

 

 

 

1. Be sure the power to the circuit is off. Remove the outer insulation and separation materials from the end of the nonmetallic cable. Strip the insulation from the wires ends. Twist together the bare ends of the neutral (white) wires, and cap with a wire nut.

 

2. Twist together the grounding (bare) wires with a short piece that will run to the switch’s grounding screw, and join them with a wire nut. Screw the hot (black) wires to the terminals, it makes no difference which hot wire goes to which terminal.

 

 

3. Fold the wires behind the switch. Carefully push the wires into the box. Screw the switch to the box. Finally, attach the light switch cover to the switch. Last, turn on the power to the circuit.
