I have a 3-gang box with the following 4 cables that I need to wire up 2 indoor lights and remove 1 outdoor light from the circuit. (I plan to connect the outdoor light up to a different breaker switch) But I can only get 1 light to work with a dimmer and the other can only be permanently on.
1 cable from the breaker with black, white, and ground wires
1 cable to an outdoor light with black, white, and ground wires (this I'm removing from the circuit)
1 cable to a kitchen fluorescent light with black, white, and ground wires
1 cable to a dimmable dining room light with black, white, red, and ground wires (I know this is part of a 3 way light with 1 other switch I've correctly set up)
I want to hook these lights up the following way to Lutron Caseta smart switches/dimmers
remove the outdoor light from the circuit (I think I can do this by just disconnecting the outdoor cable wires and capping them)
connect the kitchen light to a Caseta PD-5WS-DV Switch
connect the dining room light wires to power from the breaker (it's already connected to a Caseta Dimmer at the gang box at the other end)
All the white neutral wires are currently connected. And all the ground wires are currently connected.
When I connect the black breaker wire to only the dining room black and red wires, the dimmer works.
The problem is when I attempt to connect the kitchen light up to the Caseta Switch. The kitchen light doesn't come on and the switch LED doesn't turn on. But if I connect the black breaker wire directly to black kitchen wire, the light is on permanently.
- Why isn't the switch working with the kitchen light?
- How do I disconnect the outdoor light cable from this circuit?
- How do I connect the dining room wires and the kitchen wires to the breaker wires so they work together (and is that in series or parallel)?
