wiring a 2 gang 2 way landing light switch


Postby wysey » Sat Jul 21, 2007 5:40 pm

I need help, I am attempting to change the face plate on a 2 way light switch. Figured out the correct location for all of the wires and had it working correctly. Went to change the box behind the plate and some of neutral wires got mixed up the now the switch won't work at all.
I have 6 live cables and 6 neutral cables running to this switch.

It's driving me mad.
