enter preformatted text hereI'm updating the light switches in my kitchen and one of the switch boxes has 2 switches: one single pole with 3 black wires and one 3-way pole switch.
I disconnected all the wires from the single pole switch and connected to the new switch. At that point I had forgotten where the third wire went on the switch and just added to the top connection. When turning the switch on none of the lights turned on and my breaker was tripped.
I tried different variations and was able to get the dinning room lighting working, BUT all of the ceiling recessed lighting are not working.
I changed the new switch back to the old one and now I'm not able to get the recessed lighting to turn on either.
The image shows both switches (never touched the 3 way switch)and the different wire combinations per row and its results.
Did something going to the recessed lighting break? Where should I wire the 3rd black wire?
