There are no specific color requirements for 3-way switches. The hook up at the light will be the black light fixture wire to whatever wire is terminated on the common terminal of the 3-way switch.
Is it ok to cover the light fixture ground wire with tape?
I have a single bulb light fixture that also has an outlet as part of the fixture. Is there any way to convert it to such that the outlet stays hot while the switch controls only the light?
If in the case of a half-hot switched receptacle where the power is coming from the receptacle box, if the neutral wire is capped in the switch box, why can't the neutral wire just be snipped at each end of the three-conductor Romex?
In wiring a switched half-hot outlet that gets Its power from the outlet box if the end of the white neutral wire is capped in the switch box, why can't the end of that wire also be capped in the receptacle box? It is serving no purpose in the circuit.
Why isn't it a safety issue when connecting a short wire with a light in a circuit?
I ran a new wire from a light switch to an overhead light. The area overhead above the ceiling joist is very close together. Should the wires be stapled to the ceiling joist? The wire is going across the top of the joist.
