I wanted to put a dimmer switch in our bathroom, and of course didn’t mark the wires as I took them off. I’ve blown 2 dimmer switches, and spent hours trying different wire combinations. What I have is 1 switch and 2 outlets that seem to be inter-connected. The box containing all the wires is like this….3 groups of 3 wires, each group having (1 stripped copper wire, 1 black wire, and 1 white wire) The switches I have blown both had (1 green and 2 black wires). The funny thing is, even hooking up the blown switches, I can get the outlets to work and the lights to be on, but they stay on, and I can only shut them off with the breaker/fuse box. As you can see, I’m thouroughly confused. Any ideas.

Thank You,
