3 way switch struggle. HELP!
I cant get a 3 way switch working. I identified the live wire on both switches and connected it to the common screw. I tried all 4 combinations with the tranveler wires and only one switch works and only if the other switch is in a particular direction.
The original switch had the live wire spliced with a traveler wire and it somehow worked (it was some kind of easy wire switch on both switches). Trying to wire that one switch like that again thoguh with my new switch and it doesn't work. I don't get how that is possible and can't find a wiring diagram that reflects the original wiring yet it had worked! HELP!
