I’m trying to change the light switch in my house which was built in the 70’s. It’s a 4 switch panel, with a flip switch on each end and 2 dimmer turn knobs in the middle. The old switches had: - 2 black wires going to the first switch (a 3-way switch) - 1 (ONE!) black wire going to the second dimmer (not sure but I think it’s a single pole) - 1 black and 1 red wire going to the 3rd dimmer (think it’s a 3-way) - 1 black and 1 white wire going to the 4th switch (single pole) And then a grounding wire running between all 4. I can’t figure out for the life of me how to reconnect this puzzle. Any ideas?
I solved my own problem, but would love some input confirming that I'm not going to cause an electrical fire. Essentially I wired what I could, but had to use what was done before: free copper wires running between all 4 switches to bring the current from 1st to 2nd, 3rd, and 4th switches. There is no grounding wire, because there was none before. Any suggestions or warnings?
