I'm just trying to replace a broken dimmer switch, but can't make heads or tails out of the directions. Please see the photo of the partially attached NEW dimmer. Only the ground is connected so far.
The old switch was simply a vertical slider that turned the light off when it was slid down all the way... and made the light brighter by sliding it up.
The new dimmer is a combo rocker and little separate slider. I'm just not sure how to connect the rest. As you can see, sticking out from the wall are 2 blacks and 1 red. Remaining wires coming off the new dimmer are 2 reds and 1 black.
Could you please shed some light on this? (Note the bad electrical joke. :-)
