comment I rewired my two bulb ceiling light
A/C bulbs in most systems are wired in parallel, not series. And, if the filament in one bulb was out, neither will work in series.

comment Replacing a toggle dimmer switch with a regular light switch
It is likely that two of the black and/or red wires are bundled together in one cable (along with a white and bare/green), going toward the other switch. The remaining black or red wire is in a cable with a white and bare/green. If so, that single wire is the common (the paired black/red are the travelers).

comment How can I eliminate a gap in a refrigerator door gasket?
It often takes a day or more for a compressed vinyl based seal to return to full shape. Try covering the gaps on the outside by taping paper over the opening (but not compressing the gasket. See if it has improved by tomorrow. I assume this is not a magnetic gasket?

@JimmyFix-it I didn't see your comment until after I posted an answer. If you move this to an answer (easier for viewers to find) I will delete mine.
