How Do You Wire a Switch? One of the most common electrical wiring questions is on how to wire a switch. While using switches at home is quite easy, wiring one may not be that easy for everybody. An ON-OFF switch is actually quite simple to wire. There are different types of switches, but for this example, let’s say you are installing a single-pole toggle switch, a very common switch (and the simplest). There are three colors of wires in a typical single-pole toggle switch: black, white, and green. Splice the black wire in two and connect them on the terminal screws - one on top and the other on the bottom screw of the switch. The white wire serves as a source of uninterrupted power and is usually connected to a light colored terminal screw (e.g., silver). Connect the green wire to the ground screw of your switch.
The first thing you need to remember while handling any electrical equipment or inspecting wires, is to check the power source. The main power outlet should be turned off and the plugs of the machines should be removed from their sockets. Secondly, you should wear protective gear like rubber gloves and slippers, safety glasses and dust masks. Never touch any electrical appliance directly, always use a quality tester to check the electrical unit or the appliance. If you want to inspect wires and cables, then make sure to get enough knowledge about the electrical codes.
