I hope someone out there can help me as I can't seem to find this topic anywhere! I have a 4 gang 2 way light switch but want to use it as a 4 gang 1 way. Is this possible? I have been fiddling about with all sorts of combinations and can't make the four light switches work independently. So sometimes, when I flick one switch, all four sets of lights come on, sometimes one switch just doesn't do anything! Please help!!
You can use any 2 way light switch as one way. Depending on make of switch it will have 3 terminals. C or L1 or Com L1 or L2 or 1 way L2 or L3 or 2 way
You use Com and 1 way.
When you have a multi gang switch (as you have) to make everything physically fit, often, each switch is inverse to the one next to it. For example a 2gang 2way would have C L1 L2 at the top and L1 L2 C at the bottom.
