I know this has been asked a few times before, but I am having trouble finding an answer thread in my combination.
I have 3 sets of wires in 1 outlet 15A. The outlet is currently controlled by a light switch successfully. But because I want to connect my TV to it, I don’t want to let the light switch control all of it. My goal is to make the top switch always hot and the bottom one controlled by the outlet.
In the diagram I drew, I believe #1 goes to the switch since it’s the only positive power I see and the outlet is successfully controlled. #2 and #3 must go to other outlets or the box, but I am not sure.
My question is this: if I run a black wire from where the wires are capped to #12 on the diagram and then disconnect the tab between them, will that make the top of the outlet always hot and the bottom controlled by the switch?
Any help is greatly appreciated!
