I’ve been trying to wire a new zwave switch for over 4 hours. I’ve installed 3 others within 15 min but this one is giving me a lot of trouble. Can someone please help?
-4 black wires
-1 red and 1 grey wires that are coming from same area (maybe to ceiling fan fixture???)
-3 white neutral wires
-Bunch of bare ground wire
Goal: To have new GE zwave switch turn on/off ceiling fan. Set up smart apps to also trigger GE zwave dimmer module.
Like I said, there are two outlets in my master bedroom and I was told they are both for the ceiling fan. I had a ceiling fan put in with a remote so the second switch in my room never worked. The one switch could turn the fan on or off.
I started by removing the switch that worked and plugged the same wires into my new zwave switch. Everything worked but my ceiling fan wouldn’t turn on. I’ve now tried over 36 different wire configurations with no luck. I also have tried to revert back to my original setup but now nothing works.
Does anybody have any ideas? I’ve definitely never felt this defeated and like I said, I’ve installed a few of these in the past with no problems.
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
