Electrical Light Switch


Postby silvan senior » Thu Mar 01, 2007 3:17 pm

I have installed a new electric metal light dimmer switch which does not say that it needs to be earthed. I attached the red wire to the entry marked 'con' and the blsck wire to the entry marked terminal 2. (There is one and two) Nonetheless I earthed it and it worked for a while (2 days) but it has ceased working. This has happened twice. Can you help
