Can anyone suggest a fix for the following?
My bedroom remodel included replacing the electrical switch and split receptacles with new parts. I have confirmed that all tabs are removed on the hot side of all receptacles.
Note:I tried to install the new components exactly the same as the previous part. Clearly, I have fubared something. I can't figure out how to connect the switch and the downstream light fixture. I have shown their connections as un-terminated in my drawing.
In this room, the light switch powers one half of a split receptacle and the overhead light fixture. The light runs to the switch, not to any receptacles. Input power comes into the receptacle box not the switch box.
It was working but I can't figure out how since I only have a 14/2 line running to the switch and from the switch to the light. I can imagine getting power to and from the switch using the 14/2 (black and white used as hot with electrical tape on the ends) but cannot figure how to provide neutral to the light at the same time.
Can anyone suggest how to properly power the light? I have drawn up the situation as I see it. Oddly, my red wire connecting the switched receptacle has 24.3v on it before connecting to the switch!
