I have a simple switch question, but I can't find any info on this simple switch.
I want to add a new overhead light.
I have an outlet in the wall. I assume I want to pull power from that outlet to the switch and then to the light. How is this done?
I thought I was correct when I did the following:
I hooked W/B wires into the outlet screws that were vacant.
I basically bypassed the switch with the white wire and ran the White wire to the light without any interruptions.
I ran the black wire to the botton screw in the switch. Then I ran another black wire from the top screw in the switch to the light. Where did I go wrong? Please help.
