    Default What switch to buy

    I bought a single pole switch to work my outlets. The outlets were one side controlled by the switch, the other side always live. With the switch I bought they are all always live. What kind of switch do I need to buy to make it work like it did before?

    It's not the switch that's bad, it's how you have the outlet wired. I'd explain it, but the sparkies here can do a better job of it, as well as provide pictures.

    Sorry, but was taking a nap after connecting a switch to operate two lights.
