So I have a 4 way switch connected to some recessed lights in my living room. I purchased a Zooz Zen22 dimmer switch to replace one of the switches in the circuit. Now I am having hell getting it connected properly. Most of the circuits in my home have a neutral wire so I didn’t think that would be an issue but now I believe it is, I didn’t check that specific switch box prior to ordering the Zen22.
I’ll try to describe each switchbox as best as possible, I have pics
Switchbox 1: 4way switch 2 black wires on one side and 2 red wires, also the white neutral wire of the 2 incoming wire groups are tied together
Load appears to come in on the white neutral wire as with all other wires disconnected in this box the white wire has power. Also when all hooked up correctly power jumps around the 4 wires connected to the switch depending on the position of all the switches.
Switchbox 2: red and black wire on one side and red on the other
I believe power comes in on the red wire with the electrical tape
Switchbox 3: red and white wire on one side and a black wire on the other.
I believe again power comes in on the white wire
Yup so I’m no electrician and the Zen22 requires a neutral wire but my neutral wire has power on it so ya no clue.
I looked up the wiring diagram online Zooz provides
But I’m unsure how to make my wiring look like that without redoing everything
Anyone know how to make this work without redoing all my wiring??
Thanks in advance
