Mystery 3-way switch

Posted by Laura Wilson on October 26th, 2002 11:27 PM

OK, here's a good one. It's got me stumped at least. Digging around in my 100 year old house, removing original wiring, I found a 3-way switch connected into the new wiring. After flipping breakers and checking it out, I found that the wiring is somehow connected to the outlets in the living room and the light switch in the kitchen. That would make sense (as much as an old house can) but the switch also kills power to the lights in the den which are 3-way switched. I did not realize the connection with the kitchen until after I tied both blacks and the red together in a JBox. You guessed it, the kitchen lights ar no linger switched. I want to get rid of this switch undr my house, but I can't really figure out what is going on. Somebody, ANYBODY email me if you have a clue. Thanks in advance, Laura
