T5225 Question


I'm sure this has already been answered...but, I could not find a thread.


I have a single switch that run a light.  Black, White and Ground wires.


How do I wire the t5225.  I want the switch to continue to operate the light.  As for the outlet, it doesn't matter if continuous power or, controlled by switch.


Thanks so much.

         Since the T5225 has a receptacle, it requires a neutral wire for proper operation.  From what you've described, it appears the box in question only has a hot wire and a switch leg (excluding ground), in which case, the T5225 cannot be wired at this location.  A wiring diagram can be found here.  You may want to check your electrical box for any neutral wires that may be tied together, and pushed aside, just to be sure.
