I have looked at the projects, found similar things but not quite the same. The same goes for the forum. So I am here to plead for any help.
An open cupboard was added to the lounge, and we wanted to put a light in it. Currently there is a twin dimmer switch, one that switches the main light, and one that switches the side lights.
I am trying to add this light onto the side lights dimmer switch.
The switch is wired with one live in, looped across the two switches, with the two L1's going to the lights itself. My problem comes when connecting the new light. I tried to correct it in series with the side lights, from the L1 of the dimmer, with no joy, the new light lit, but the side lights didn't. I am did attempt to wire it in parrallel as well, but hoping I did something wrong, as again only one lit.
I can not understand why it would not have the power to light the side lights. Can any one help me please?
