[ad#block]Question: I am trying to install a new GE 600w 120vac dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch has 2 black wires and one red.
I don’t have any instruction for it.
The wall switch has two whites together caped, two blacks in the switch, and then the green.
How do I connect all three red, black black?
