Wiring 3-Way Switch Box - I have a residence (georgia, united states of america) and some kitchen renovations have found out a few previous electrical paintings and i'm seeking to determine it out. At first, there was a ceiling box in the kitchen with a fan/light fixture managed by a couple of 3-way switches. One 3-manner transfer changed into located at the kitchen front to the storage and the other transfer became placed in a 2-gang field that it shared with a 2-way transfer for a ceiling mild within the dining place. The fan and mild did not have separate switches.
Now we get into a few code problems. This setup became in all likelihood prison whilst the residence become built. The 3-way white wire isn't always marked due to the fact apparent switch loops did not want to be. There may be no actual impartial going to the some distance 3-manner due to the fact code did no longer require that. Now it does. Bringing it to current code might require pulling a 12/4 or 14/4 cable among the 2 transfer boxes.
Now, about that marked neutral. It is actually a neutral, despite having a marking this is typically used and required to re-designate white wires as "hot". If this designation is used some other place inside the residence, then i might argue this usage violates nec due to being inconsistent (110.12 workmanlike). In any other case it is, nicely, controversial.
The ceiling field on the left is how i suppose it need to be stressed out, with one exception. Word that there's black tape proven on the impartial going to the sink light transfer. This transfer isn't a three-way switch so i suppose that the black tape is a mistake. The recent from the ceiling box is going to the transfer which then sends it to the light fixture. The neutral from the mild fixture should hook up with the neutral from the ceiling field inside the switch field and all of the neutrals are related collectively in the ceiling box as proven. In some unspecified time in the future in the beyond, an outdoors flood mild changed into delivered to the house and the 3-manner transfer in the 2-gang box changed into changed with a duplex transfer. One switch controls the mild fixture and the opposite controls the exterior flood mild. The three-way transfer at the garage front turned into abandoned and included with a cowl plate. And via abandoned, i imply the 'electrician' bent lower back the tabs at the switch and shoved the entire transfer into the container). The general layout seems like this:.
