So, I am currently trying to wire a 3-way switch, but specifically the Jasco 45609 and its auxiliary switch counterpart the Jasco 45610.
The Jasco 45609 has 5 wire inputs:
The Jasco 45610 has 3 wire inputs:
So I've wired the primary switch (45609) with the proper wire inputs.
- 120V "hot" wire goes to line (black)
- load goes to the light (black)
- ground to exposed copper
- traveler to a red wire
- neutral to a white wire
And I've wired the auxiliary switch (45610) as so:
- White to neutral
- Red to traveler
- Exposed copper to ground
So the diagram looks something on the lines of:
When I use the primary switch, the light turns on and off as expected. However, when I try using the aux switch, nothing happens. Am I wiring things correctly or is something clearly wrong on what I am doing?
I can mention that the wiring in the two boxes are a little strange. I am however bypassing the second box just to test out the auxiliary switch wiring by placing the two switches together and wiring them side by side. This means that my second electrical box is just bypassed where I put electrical nuts to tie the neutrals together and the load wires together so that the lamp turns on properly.
