Semi Working after Installing.

Our dining room has three light switches (all of which are over 36 yrs old). The 4-way switch was starting to go with the lights going off at times without touching that switch, but flicking the switch off then back on would return the lighting. You'd also have to fiddle with the switch as sometimes it would turn the lights on then off as you flipped the switch. Clearly the switch was faulty so I picked up this new 4-way switch and hooked it up. Now what happens is all three switches will work IF the new 4-way is in the on position. If the 4 way is in the off position neither of the other two switches work.

In case this is important: The wiring in the wall was 2 black wires and 2 red. The two red wires go to the bottom left/right connectors and the black go to the top left/right connectors on the 4-way switch.

Any help or advice is appreciated.

Thanks
John

Answer: 
It sounds as if you have a couple of traveler wires crossed. For wiring assistance, please call Leviton Tech Support at 800.824.3005.

Answer: 
With the existing 36 year old wire you have, the reds should be on the left and the blacks on the right.

This item states it is a 4 way switch. I though a 4 way would control lights form 3 locations, but the write says only 2 locations. So why buy this?

Answer: 
A 4-way switch sets between 3 way switches. It has the ability to tell the other switches if the load is on or off. If you are controlling a load from more than two locations, then all switches between the beginning of the run and end of the run need to be 4 way switches. for instance if you are controlling a hall light and you have three bedrooms and a bathroom and all have a switch outside there doors Read More
A 4-way switch sets between 3 way switches. It has the ability to tell the other switches if the load is on or off. If you are controlling a load from more than two locations, then all switches between the beginning of the run and end of the run need to be 4 way switches. for instance if you are controlling a hall light and you have three bedrooms and a bathroom and all have a switch outside there doors plus one at the end of the hall, then you would need two 3-way switches and three 4-way switches, where you put them is relative to where the circuit is getting it's power from. Proper wiring diagrams are readily available from Google Images and other online sites. As for the screw problem, the screws are designed to clamp the wire inside the back of the switch utilizing a metallic block that slides back and forth as the screw is tightened, that is what the holes are for, not a spring loaded push connection! The other consumers tried to loosen the screws i'm assuming, which totally unthreaded them from the block that slides back and forth inside the switch, hence there problem with restarting the screw.

Answer: 
to control a load, ( light or motor) from 1 Location you need only a regular switch, to control the load from 2 locations, you need 2 three way switches, to control a load from 3 locations you would need 2 three way switches and 1 four way switch.
from this point you may add switches as desired as long as there are 2 three way switches on the "ends" of the circuit and four ways switches in between.

Answer: 
You can control a light with one single-pole switch. You can control a light with two “three-way” switches. I believe that you can also control a light with two “three-way” switches and one “four-way” switch. Adding another “four-way” switch would control the light from four different locations.

Rated 2.9 out of 5 by 14 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4-way wall switch Just the needed switch while wiring up some new overhead led lights out in the garage. A little bit more pricy than the 3-way but now I can turn them on or off at each entrance. June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Switch Bad Bought this switch for a three switch Living room light setup. After a month and a half got to finishing the wiring to the light. Turned on the Breaker, switched the first 3 way, light went on. Flipped the other three way, light went out, flipped the 4 way, light did not go on. Flipped both 3's no light. Returned the 4 way, and everything started working. Pulled out the four way, found it ohm'd good in straight path, bad in crossed path. As I don't know where the receipt is, it can't be exchanged. Tis a shame for a 10 dollar 'preferred' switch... December 17, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Junk, absolute junk Could not believe how bad this was made. If you used the plug in feature on the back it might actually work but no way you can put a #12 wire on the screw terminals. Usually on these plug in type switches you can back out the screws enough to force your wire on but not these. Any one that gives this more than one star must have stock in the company. This goes back tomorrow. I only give it one star because it's required November 10, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 4-Way Switch Needed to replace a 4-way switch during my kitchen remodel so it would match all the other switches. This fit the bill and was able to be picked up locally, and it wasn't much more than the best price I could find on-line. December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Den Switch Did exactly what I needed it to do ! Needed it for a 4 way on/off December 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The other reviewers lack experience, this is a quality product that installs easily. First and foremost, if you are a hobbyist DIYer and haven't done a whole lot of wiring, then you should probably hire out electrical jobs, especially those that are more than a basic outlet replacement. Some of the folks that are complaining about screws falling out within this unit very clearly lack understanding of how terminals work on some higher end components. In this case, it is actually preferable to use the slots as they are secured by the terminal and not a spring-loaded mechanism as is the case with some components. This makes wiring a breeze. If you don't use the slots, then make sure you allow the screw head to "drop" out of the side (with gravity) and wrap your wirings around the terminal. Unscrewing it will lead to exactly the situation that some are describing and this is NOT actually a defect. Secondly, a 4 way switch sits in between two 3 ways switches. It's important to grasp this concept. If you are replacing an existing 4 way, the wiring may not swap out exactly as the old switch was wired. Older 4 way switches had designations on their terminals like "Line 1" and "Line 2". Whereas you'll notice on this switch that two of the terminals are 'input' and two are 'output'. If the switch functions in unanticipated fashion after install, chances are you got your wiring wrong and the switch hasn't actually failed. After installation, it's important to test the functionality of the load with each of the switches in each position. It's possible that one position may make the switch appear to be "dead" or "always on" if wired incorrectly. That said, this switch works beautifully if you understand how to install it. Installation is a 5 minute affair with the screw-lock terminals. The switch itself feels like a quality unit and has a good action to it. Not much else to say other than that. August 3, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by What can i say. This switch worked just lite it should. It was easy to install June 28, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor Quality I ran into a similar issue as the other reviewer in that the screws failed. I had mine installed for about 2 years, pulled it out of the switch box as I had to do some work on other wiring in the box and one of the screws completely bound up. For $10, I expect that the screws would be more than a one time use. I'll have to try a supply house for a better quality switch. September 21, 2014
