I have a 3 way switch connected to a chandelier which is somehow not getting power. All the light bulbs work, but none switch on.
I know it's getting power because an electronic timer connected on one end of the three way switch still works—I went to the breaker and flipped all the switch... no luck.
Is there something missing in how I'm going about diagnosing this? There are no GFCIs anywhere near this.
Update: The non electronic switch has continuity across the terminals regardless of switch position, and does not have voltage regardless of switch position. Does this sound possible? Just a broken switch or is this normal for 3 way switches?
Update 2: Thanks for the comments. Below are pictures.
(It now seems obvious I had continuity across this side, but the switch seems to function well when continuity is checked against the other side.)
