3-Way Switch Wiring
My dad and I are trying to replace an old light fixture in our kitchen, but we are having problems wiring in the new one.
The light is operated by two 3-ways switches. I checked them; they have 1 black, red, and white wire each.
Now, when we took off the old fixture, which worked perfectly, we noted the wiring. The circuit box has 4 holes with a pair of wires (1 black and 1 white) in each - 8 wires total. One of the black was connected to the black of the light. Every white but this black's (3) was connected to the white. And the rest - 3 blacks and 1 white - were connected to a green cord we took to be the ground. There are no red wires to be seen.
We wired the new light fixture the exact same way as the old one, but the breaker keeps on switching back. I'm not sure what we're doing wrong, but I feel like it has something to do with the funky wiring. I'd love any help you could give me.
