Kitchen switch wiring question
Glad I found this place!
I've researched for 2 hours about this issue and I'm still not 100% sure of what I need to do.
I hope this can not only help me but other people who found themselves in the same situation.
First, what the layout shows:
I have a GFCI that's being fed power from the main power source, the breaker box.
I want to put a switch next to it.
I have a double plug receptacle 5 feet away hidden inside the sink cabinet.
What I want to do is have the switch next to the GFCI control one of the outlets on the plug receptacle and the other outlet be supplied power permanently.
I have already removed the metal tabs on both sides of the double plug receptacle to individualize each outlet.
Where I'm stuck at is on what type of switch I need to get. The layout I made shows a "three way plug". I don't know if this is necessary or a regular(two way plug?) would do just fine.
And I also would like to know how would the switch be wired from the GFCI and to the hidden receptacle.
I made the layout as simple as possible but if I'm mistaken advise me how to correct it.
The layout shows abbreviated terms for any of the specialists to explain the correct wiring configuration.
Just punch in the configuration and I will modify the image as we go along.
The final product should be of reference for people who are found in the same situation.
If you need any other information just ask away!
