Q:I have a fan in my kitchen that can be operated using two different light switches. Can i use this switch
by|Feb 2, 2022
2 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  Probably not. This is a simple single pole, single throw light switch. Can't really answer without details of how the fan is wired.

by|Feb 11, 2022

    A:  The answer is no you need a Single pole double throw switch or sometimes called a 3 way switch. The abbreviated name is SPDT switch, just ask for the Home Depot Electrical department Leader and he can help you find one and then if your not an expert with wiring you should probably check with an electrician as to how they are wired. Again thank you for shopping at Home Depot and have a nice day.

      Q:Is this switch rated for direct aluminum wire termination.
      by|Apr 14, 2021
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  If you check the manufacturers installation instructions, they specify the use of copper or copper-clad wire only. Aluminum requires a much larger diameter (almost twice the size) to carry the same current as copper. If the existing wiring is aluminum, I would consider a rewire with copper; it is smaller, lighter, and more compatible with products offered today.

      Q:Can this switch handle a 1500 watt heater being plugged into the wall outlet? I have this switch to cotrol a wall outlet. Heater fryed dimmer switch

      Answer This Question

      A:  Well, let's do the math. The switch is rated at 110v (RMS) with a maximum current of 15 amps. V x A = Watts 110 x 15 = 1650 watts. So, the answer is yes, but barely. I would suggest getting a high power 20 amp switch just for a safety cushion.

      A:  A 1500 watt space heater (on high setting) will draw 12.5 Amps. When a few lights or a television are on the same circuit, the 15 Amp limit is quickly reached and the breaker will trip. When wired correctly your Leviton 15 amp single-pole toggle light switch should handle your space heater but same principle applies if you have other things on that same circuit the breaker will trip. Make sure you check all the proper codes in your area. Thank you for shopping Home Depot.

      A:  1500w÷ 120v = 12.5amp so you are well under 15amp rating.

      by|May 8, 2021

      A:  Yes, this is a 15amp switch and can handle up to 1850 watts

      Q:will this switch operate a wall outlet?
      by|Dec 15, 2020
      2 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes. Wire the black (hot) feed line to the switch. The white (neutral) wire bypasses the switch and goes directly to the silver (long slot) screw of the outlet. The ground wire loops under the switch ground and continues on to the ground screw of the outlet. Using the excess black wire that was cut off, wrap a red identifier band at each end within 2 inches of the end of the wire. Connect this "switched" hot line between the other terminal of the switch and the brass (hot) screw of the outlet.

      A:  Yes, it will

      Had to change out my light switch and this switch saved the day. Easy to install, as long as you know what you are doing if not I recommend getting a professional. Switched out the old one put this one in and my lights once again came back to life. Looks and feels well made and the price is unbeatable. Overall I recommend!

        This is a single pole switch. It is used when you want to turn a single light on and off (or fan or other electrical device). It is a very simple switch to install. Of course, always turn the power off to this location prior to starting. If you are replacing an existing switch, you will just use the wires that are already in the box. You hook the ground (green wire) to the green screw. There will also be two black wires. It doesn't matter which one goes where. You can hook either wire to either (non-green) screw. That's all there is to it.

        I purchased these to update the dark brown switches in my new (older) home. They work great so far (1 month). However, make sure the switch cover plate you purchase is large enough to cover the entire hole that was cut in the sheetrock. I made a return trip to HD to exchange the “standard” sized plates for midsized.
