In this arrangement two 3-way dimmers are used to allow for lowering the lights from both locations. Here the common on the first dimmer connects to the hot source and the common on the second connects to the hot on the light. As with all these types of circuits the traveler wires run between the switches and connect the traveler terminals.
If your switches stop working they may be worn out or the screws may have come loose. If you’ve wired a new switch correctly and the circuit still doesn’t work, the switch may be defective. Check that all connections are tight. Check the switch, remove it from the circuit and test for failure with a continuity tester or multimeter set on the Ohms setting.
Instead of terminals, a 3 way dimmer has 4 wires coming out of the casing: one common, two travelers and one ground wire. The common wire is usually black and the travelers red. In any case, the traveler wires will usually be the same color to distinguish them from the common wire.
A 4 way switch must be wired between two 3 ways as shown in the diagrams on this page. A 4 way has five connections: one ground, and 4 circuit terminals divided into two matching pairs. Each pair of terminals should be wired to the traveler wires from one of the 3 way switches. The travelers can be wired to either terminal in a pair, but don’t mix up the pairs or the circuit won’t work properly.
