Need help with rewiring a nightmare. Answered
I have a box with 4 cables coming in. found one cable with power on white and black wire. I have connected all the white wires together and the black and the ground now with the hot wires i placed the white/hot wire on the top of the switch. don't know what to do with that black one, I have tried putting a black pigtail on the bottom and it lets me turn the light on but turning it off it's still on but dimmer.
None of the wires are labeled and you can't tell where they go. this "box" had two outlets one to the hall light and one to outside which wasn't really working. and then it goes to the kitchen as well as the bathroom light and two of the three bedrooms, one on each end of house.
Can someone help me figure this out, I have blown some breakers and i even had this "pretty" light flash when testing which wire is what.
Thanks to anyone who can help. please send info to firstname.lastname@example.org
