I'm trying to replace an old fan switch in my bathroom. The top two switches don't even work anymore. Here's a picture:
The three switches on the left are the ones that need replacing.
And here's what's behind the switch:
I'm trying to replace it with one of these three switches (A Leviton 1755, 15A-120V):
Before giving up and calling an electrician, I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. There are three things throwing me:
- What's going on with the small black wire connecting the two switches on the right hand side of the old setup?
- What is the small black wire connecting the left hand side of the old switch to the right hand side?
- There's no grounding wire that I can see on this setup. Is this normal?
In general, step by step instructions on how the wires in the old switch would correspond to the new switch would be much appreciated.
Update: Here's a picture of the inside of the box:
