In reply to 3 way light switches by LeAnn Littleton on February 3rd, 1998 09:37 PM [Go to top of thread]

I have the hot feed wire run to the light box....black wire nutted to white, making white hot to primary switch.....black to common at first switch, black common at second switch....red and white to tops screws on three-way switch....secondary switch works, but controls the primary switch (i.e. the secondary switch has to be on in order for the primary switch to work at all)! HELP!!!! PLEASE!!!!

I desperately need a diagram showing what to do before I burn my house down trying to figure it out on my own!!!!!
