I ran into a wiring issue while trying to help someone wire a new outlet...
He wants to add an outlet (to be always hot) to a switch that controls a ceiling fan (most convenient location). The power source comes in at the ceiling fan fixture. The only wires running from the ceiling fan to the switch is a single set of 14/2.
Question is: without changing any of the existing wires, can we add an outlet to the single set of switch wires to be always hot? Can this be done by perhaps using 14/3 and rewiring the setup from the switch box to the outlet box? The box for the new outlet has already been added below the switch box, we just need to know how to wire it if it can be done.
Thanks in advance to everyone that takes the time to read this and help us out!
