Single gang light switch

Postby willraff » Thu Mar 31, 2011 2:21 am

Can anyone help? I have removed a single gang light switch and forgotten which wires go where
The light switch is on my landing and is connected to a two gang light switch downstairs - this controls the hall and landing light.
The wires going into the landing switch are three red, one blue, one black, one yellow and two earths.
The locating holes on the back of the switch are marked L1, L2 and L3.
If someone can advise on how the wires should be connected it would be much appreciated :)

Many thanks,Will.

Simply Build It

Both switches are wired the same. So which ever wire goes to L1 on one switch will also go to L1 on the other switch.
