    Default 3 switchs (1 dimmer) how to wire and proper light switches to use

    Afternoon, my entrance lights have 3 switches

    1 at the front entrance
    1 at the garage entrance
    1 at the entrance where the entrance hall meets the dining room

    They all control the entrance lights
    The switch at the dining area is a dimmer, the other 2 seem to be standard switches

    Problem is, the entrance switch keeps "zapping out" (not sure of the proper term but it gets to the point where I have to hit the face plate for the lights to come on after I turn the lights on) and I have replaced it 3 times (going on 4)

    I suspect its the type of switches that were installed when the house was built

    Can someone give me some insight into how I can fix this?

    Thanks in advance

    Do you know how many screws are on each switch where wires can be connected, and how many wires come out of the dimmer, not counting the green one if it has one?
