just bough ge dimmer switch at lowes. direction per hook up state connect 2 wires, load and lead and off you go.
when i opened my light switch box (2 switches for light and fan) i found a crap load of wires. Red, black white and ground.
i was planning on leaving the old fan switch in and using the new dimmer for the light portion only. i could not figure out how to connect the switch. the red wire was screw me up. i had only one Load wire coming out of wall, then to the light switch and then jump to fan switch. Red wire was connected to the light switch. when i connected the New dimmer switch, i tried every wire option i can google. nothing worked.
tried: load, lead and red wire to traveler
tried: load, lead
any help would be appropriated.
i would like to have dimmer option on fan in my kid room, since she does’t like sleeping in total darkness
