I would like to use low energy bulbs in my lounge but couldn't because dimmer switches were installed. When trying to replace 2 gang 2 way ordinary 2 switch, all wires are red and I can't get the 2 switches to work at the same time. I can either get all wall light fittings to work or single light will work but not from both the on/off switch at both door entrances.
Yes I marked all the cables but the replacement switch was not the same as the dimmer switch hence my problem. The old witch was marked L1 L2 and C the replacemnet is marked 1 way 2 way 1 way 2 way and 2 x common.
