    Thanks. We are aware of this. We probably should have bulldozed the house...it has a zillion things out of code.
  2. Jimbo, thanks. That was my first thought when I...

    Jimbo, thanks. That was my first thought when I saw this. I'm going to get it cleaned up by an electrician, but I'm going to do some crawling around in very tight spaces first to try to find why the...
  3. Thank you hj. I embarassingly have typos in my...

    Thank you hj. I embarassingly have typos in my very pretty diagram. It's actually 8 and 12 connected and 10 and 14 connected. Do you have any ideas on an application that might have required this?...
  4. Thank you very much big2bird for all your help.

    Thank you very much big2bird for all your help.
  5. Thank you, Chad. Yes, I will get an electrician....

    Thank you, Chad. Yes, I will get an electrician. It seems very deliberate, so I would really like to know what types of applications might this make sense for and try to narrow it down some more...

    JWelectric...ok I spent all this time making a pretty diagram and then I mislabelled it. I don't blame you for just wiping your hands of me. Sheez. It's actually 8 and 12 powering the first switches,...
  7. They are connected that way. I know that sounds...

    They are connected that way. I know that sounds crazy but it's absolutely true. As proof, when the lights attached to one of them are on, I need to have BOTH #12 and #14 flipped off for the lights to...

    Here are photos...a diagram of the three dual switches, a photo of the garage circuit panel with CB #8,#10, #12, and #14 all flipped off, a photo of two of the switches (one is removed completely,...
  9. Please know I will not do anything without...

    Please know I will not do anything without getting an electrician, but this situation is so bizarre that if I can do some investigation and perhaps find what this went to, I can focus the effort and...
  10. I don't think I'm totally lost, but I'm clearly...

    I don't think I'm totally lost, but I'm clearly not an expert and I don't even know exactly what the standard language is. I meant CB #8 and CB #10 power the one dual switch, and CB #12 and CB #14...
  11. Yes, I'm talking about circuit breaker numbers....

    Yes, I'm talking about circuit breaker numbers. I'm sorry I'm not using the right language to describe this. I put all that information in, because in googling this, I found something that said where...
  12. Thank you! I will work on getting a picture, but...

    Thank you! I will work on getting a picture, but you may have touched on something. The top and bottom switch in each of the three are DEFINITELY simultaneously powered by two different circuit...
  13. I cannot find what's on the other end. It will be...

    I cannot find what's on the other end. It will be very expensive for an electrician to do it. I'm not certain it's worth the expense, give it's been like this for many years and most of the switches...
  14. Yes, I'm certain. Disconnecting the wires from...

    Yes, I'm certain. Disconnecting the wires from one pair of switches shows that the bottom switch had one hot feed, the top switch had another hot feed. With the jumper in place, this meant both...
  15. Thank you very much. Let me ask you...so does it...

    Thank you very much. Let me ask you...so does it ever make sense to feed a dual switch for lights with two circuits and not remove the jumper?
  16. weird wiring and wierd voltages on 3 dual switches...

    In our 1969 home that we've had 7 years, we have a mystery. There are 3 dual switches in one switch box by our back door (so 6 switches total), and until recently, we could not find anything that...
