Re: Three Way Light Switch Not Working

I pulled out all of the wire and grouped them by which port in the box they're coming through and numbered them. Hot circled in red.

Re: Three Way Light Switch Not Working

I swapped the circled wires and it didn't seem to help. If the light was on I could turn it off and on from either switch, but if off I could only turn it on from the one that had turned it off.

Re: Three Way Light Switch Not Working

It's never worked properly. Rehabbed in 2010 but we bought it two years ago. I'm not certain where the power originates.
