This video will demonstrate how to install the Leviton 5224, Decora® 5634 and Decora 5627 Combination Switches. All are two single pole switches. Please be certain to follow all instructions and diagrams provided with the product. If you are unsure about any part of the instructions or if you are not comfortable or familiar with working with electrical wiring, contact an electrician. When installing and terminating this Leviton device, have the following tools on hand: a flathead screwdriver, a Phillips head screwdriver, electrician’s pliers, a wire stripper, electrical tape and a handheld voltage tester Installation takes approximately 15 minutes. The process shown follows general guidelines. Local codes take precedence. Be sure to turn the power off at the circuit breaker and use a voltage tester to ensure that the power is completely OFF. Now we need to identify the “Hot” wire. To do this, turn the circuit breaker back on. Carefully use the voltage tester to test each wire. The “hot” wire will be indicated by the tester. Once identified, turn off the circuit breaker to shut power and test to ensure the power is off. Use a small piece of electrical tape to label the “hot” wire.

First, we will demonstrate a Common Feed installation which is two single pole switches on the same circuit. Each single pole switch controls independent lighting load(s). This method will require the following wires be present in the wallbox: a black “hot” wire, two black load wires, and a bare copper ground wire. Next, we will demonstrate a Separate Feed installation which is two single pole switches on separate circuits. Each single pole switch controls an independent lighting load. This method will require the following wires be present in the wallbox: two black “hot” wires, two black load wires and a bare copper ground wire. Keep in mind, the color of the wires may vary, the hot wire may be black or red.

The ground wire may be green or bare copper. If you are unsure, contact an electrician. Next, you need to be sure that the wires are prepared for installation: Make sure the ends of the wires from the wallbox are stripped approximately 5/8” of an inch. The first installation will be wiring by Common Feed. To wire, first, loop the black hot wallbox wire clockwise ¾ of a turn around one common black terminal screw.

Tighten firmly. Next, loop one black load wallbox wire – load 1 – clockwise ¾ of a turn around brass terminal screw A1. Tighten firmly. Next, loop the second black load wallbox wire – load 2 – clockwise ¾ of a turn around brass terminal screw B1. Tighten firmly. Finally, loop the ground wire clockwise ¾ of a turn around the green screw. Tighten firmly. The device is now terminated. Proceed to mounting at 5 minutes and 42 seconds in this video. The next installation will be wiring by Separate Feed. To begin we must remove the break-off fin which is located between the black screws by using a standard flathead screwdriver. Simply bend the fin until it breaks off. To wire, first, loop one black hot wallbox wire clockwise ¾ of a turn around one common black terminal screw.

Tighten firmly. Now, loop the second black hot wallbox wire clockwise ¾ of a turn around the second common black terminal screw. Tighten firmly. Next, loop one black load wallbox wire – load 1 – clockwise ¾ of a turn around brass terminal screw A1. Tighten firmly. Next, loop the second black load wallbox wire – load 2 – clockwise ¾ of a turn around brass terminal screw B1. Tighten firmly. Finally, loop the ground wire clockwise ¾ of a turn around the green screw. Tighten firmly. The device is now terminated. Carefully position all wires to provide room in the wallbox for the device. Mount the device in the wallbox with the mounting screws provided. Attach the wallplate.

Restore power at the circuit breaker. Test the installation by operating the top switch several times. The lights should turn on and off. Then, operate the bottom switch several times. The lights should turn on and off. If the lights do not work properly, refer to the troubleshooting section of the instructions. Your Leviton Combination Switches are now ready for use.
