My bathroom has one switch that powers the fan and light. In that electrical box, there is also a hard wired electrical outlet that sits in the bathroom. Since I don't have room for a 2 gang box in my location, I would like to install a double rocker in that one gang box. Can I get a diagram showing what that wiring would look like?
Top switch: Light on
Bottom switch: Fan on
Always on: electrical outlet
This is the switch:
So I took a look at my current plug and this is what I've discovered. The switch has no ground, only a white wire that leaves it from the bottom and is HOT (I checked with a Klein). The upper black wire powers the fan and light when in the up position. I can see that lower white wire that's connected to the switch, comes back as black and is one of those 3 hot ones i've labeled.
