I am now attempting to wire two existing three way toggle switches to a Leviton 5643 three way combination switch for two 3-way lights on the same circuit - Pictures included.
Box 1 is what I term the “main box” because it is next to the remote for the fan. It is important to know that the fan needs continual power so the remote will work. We can turn the fan/light on and off with both three way switches located at box 1 and 2 Box 1 holds one three way switch 2 gang Box 2 holds two three way switches In Box 2 - Switch 1 (left switch) works with the fan/light In Box 2 - Switch 2 (right switch) works with the foyer light
After much work and testing I found the following.
Box 1 is providing the power to the ceiling fan/light. Box 2 is providing the power to box 1.
I ran a new wire to the 2 gang Box 2 to handle the recessed lighting. I will leave the wiring for box 1 as is for the ceiling fan/light. I will be adding a new 15a Leviton Decora 3-way combination switch to handle the power to and from the ceiling fan/light and foyer light. TOTALLY LOSING MY MIND NOW! I attempted to wire things as instructed by the combination three way switch and it tripped the breaker. I un wired everything just to see what is happening and found it odd that I was getting power from the Foyer three way wires when I have everything unconnected.
