Hi everyone, my GE dimming kit doesn’t work(electricity wise) and I’ve spent 2 days trying to figure out why.
Typically I wouldn’t post for help but I’ve wiried lots of outlets in my life and never had as many issues as I do with this. I have also ruled out the fact that maybe the unit was just a lemon by putting in a different unit. This I can say is the only smart product I’ve had any issues with as far as electricity is concerned. I’ll start off by saying that the original 3 way dimming switch & light setup worked before trying to install this GE wifi kit. Anyways… Here goes.
I have a 3 way GE Dimmer Kit. The setup that it will be going into is as follows:
If you want to get technical about it here we go:
From the Breaker comes a thick white wire into Switch1. This thick white wire from the Breaker to Switch1 has a black and a white wire. (Fairly standard setup)
From Switch one there is a thick black wire going to Light. This thick black wire has a black a white and a red wire inside. (Also fairly common)
The light has a black and white wire. (again, fairly common)
The same style thick black wire is going from Light to Switch 2.
Hopefully you’re still with me. If not, here’s another style of diagram that you might be able to understand me with.
Switch1(black/white[from Breaker], black/white/red[to Light])
Light(black/white/red[from Switch1],black/white[from the actual light], black/white/red[to Switch2])
Now that you have some confusing diagrams in writing to try and understand… PLEASE HELP!!!
I’ve been racking my brain trying to figure out why it won’t work.
