Assuming standard color conventions, i.e., black is hot (line), white is neutral, and green is ground, here’s what you’d do:
- Check continuity of the terminals (input to output) with the switch in the energized/on position to figure out which input terminal is connected to which output terminal.
- Wire black to the input terminal connected to “1”
- Wire white to the input terminal connected to “2”
- Wire green to the input terminal connected to “3”
- Wire black to “1”
- Wire black to “2”
- Wire black to “3”

No, you have to wire in the switch.
Ground is still ground, Hot goes through the switch, neutral is straight through.January 29, 2019 at 11:36 am #86431
Ok, that makes sense, but again, that skips the 3rd prong on the switch…January 29, 2019 at 12:08 pm #86435

OOOOKkkk. That makes more sense now.
so switch side…
- brass is empty
- gets my black wire
- gets a jumper to…
- gets my white wire
- gets my green wire.
ok. explained like that with the 2 state switch, makes much more sense now. Thank you both.January 30, 2019 at 3:12 pm #86625
Doh! That’s what I get for assuming things. Thanks to Ryan for fixing my assumption!February 11, 2019 at 3:47 pm #88752
It is my humble opinion that the wiring above (2 red wires) is incorrect. The jumper from the load out from the fuse should go to the center position on the switch. If you want the switch to light when powered the bronze terminal (3) should be connected to Neutral (Not ground). I have attached to photos to back up my opinion.You must look close to see the numbers on the switch photo.
