Blog > Replacing light switches

Hello,

I have purchased some new aluminum light switches for the kitchen, however i’m a little confused as the connections on the new switch are different to the old one, so I thought I would ask for some advice before proceeding!
One is a single switch and one is a double, they are part of a circuit, so each one can turn off the main kitchen light.

The current 2 way switch has L1, L2, L3 on the top and L1, L2, L3 on the bottom, the new switch has L1, L2, L1, L2 on the bottom and two com’s on the top.

The current 1 way switch has L1, L2, L3, the new switch has L1, L2 and com.

I appreciate you are very busy people, however if anyone has the time to offer advice I would be very grateful.

Thank you,

James
