Licensed Philadelphia electrician serving Delaware, Chester, Montgomery and Philadelphia County in Pennsylvania. I install and repair residential, commercial and industrial wiring and lighting. Troubleshooting and repair of problems that stump other people is my favorite. I am willing to help people figure out why things don`t work. I understand motor controls, transformers and machine wiring. I do not teach basics to novices or do free design work.

Just about any home wiring question. (not appliance repair) I have done all kinds of home wiring for myself, including adding a new breaker box, etc. Please, questions from North America only. Please be specific with details. Please note that I am a homeowner who is self-taught. I know a lot, but I am not an electrician. I always base my answers on following the rules. If you are asking me how to jury-rig something, you probably won't like my answer.

In a 3 way set up, colors of the wires don't mean too much.  The odd colored screw are more likely to be black, but not always.  See if you can find 2 wires in one cable with the third wire from another
