    Default new dimmer push switch - old wiring

    I've replaced many light switches in my old bungalow, but ran into some confusion today. I am replacing an old push botton with a new push buttom dimmer switch. The new dimmer switch has black and white wires (and ground wire). When I pulled the old switch out, it is connected to all black wires with an additional black wire to a neighboring light switch that will not be changed. What wires get connected to the black wire and what wire to the white wire of the new dimmer switch?

    Can you post the maker and part number of your new switch?

    Is the old push button also a dimmer ?

    Classic Accents does not provide a spec or on line install sheet that I could find. Did it come with an installation sheet or diagram on the box it/if it came in?

    No install sheet included in the box.
