I am trying to install a GE Zwave Dimmer Switch (14294) in a 3-way setting.
I think I have all of the wires in the right spot. The problem is, when I connect the black (hot) line into the “line” hole of the GE switch, and then I connect the white neutral wire to the neutral connection of the GE switch, and then turn on the power, this setup instantly trips my circuit breaker and power stops flowing.
Thus, I can’t seem to get any power into my zwave dimmer switch, since every time i connect the neutral, it seems to “short” or trip my circuit.
Here are some pictures of the previous dimmer light setup before disconnection :
Any thoughts as to why connecting the neutral would cause my circuit breaker to flip? Any help would be appreciated
