Hello guys im having problems re-wiring my hallway light switch after replacing the switch covers and need some advice. Any help is really appreciated.
I basically have 2 seperate cieling lights.
-1 light on the upstairs landing, which is a single switch, but this also works from a double switch down at the bottom of the stairs as well
-1 light at the bottom of the stairs which is a lobby light which works from the double switch at the bottom of the stairs as well.
On the back of the single switch at the top of the stairs I have 3 terminals
L1 L2 L3 and 4 wires, red, yellow, blue and earth. Im fine with where the earth goes.
On the back of the double switch at the bottom of the stairs I have 6 terminals. 3 at the top L1 L2 L3 and 3 at the bottom L1 L2 L3. From the wall theres 7 wires. 2 of theses are earth, so 5 wires. 1 red 1 yellow and 1 blue ( same as upstairs ) also a slightly heavier core cable in black and red.
I just need to know how to re-wire. I did make notes on taking off the old switch facias, but rewiring the same doesnt work. Whats happening at the minute is the lobby light is turned on and off from the double switch.
- i dont own a multimetre
- also is the L3 terminal another name for common?
thanks in advance for any help.
