I’ve read countless threads and tried countless combinations and I’m coming up empty so I come to you all, white flag in the air.
Successfully installed several GE 12724 (master dimmer) and 12723 (slave switch) combinations today. All went well until I got to my 4-way box.
I have the master and slave installed in two of the 3 4-way circuit locations and working quite well. However, the 3rd location, which I believe is called the middle of the circuit, is giving me headaches with the 12723.
In the box (in addition to the neutral bunch which is easy) are two red/black wire pairs. One pair is carrying 120 volts. The other pair is carrying no volts.
The 12723 has just two wire screws, one for the neutral which I used the white jumper for. The other screw, I feel I have tried all combinations of wiring under this screw to no avail. I need help! Also, I need to know which of the remaining wires (not used) I need to cap individually or cap together. This seems to be a step ignored in instructions and all posts I see - Essentially how to determine which wires to actually connect to the 12723 slave switch, and how to cap the remaining unused wires (together or separately).
As I mentioned, I received 120v on one of the wire pairs, both on the red and the black. On the second pair, no voltage.
Suggestions welcome, I’m just baffled at this stage. The standard 4 way switch I’m replacing had one pair on the top left and top right screws, and the other pair on the bottom left and bottom right screws.
