Subject: Light switch to outlets

Name: Kimberly Hornbacher

Question: Our bedroom was set up that a single light switch turned off/on the upper plug of several dual plug outlets. The bottom plug was always "on".We replaced several outlets (but not all) and the light switch. Now both plugs are always on all the outletssThe light switch has only 1 wire coming in (or out). The black, red, and ground are connected but the white wire wasn't (and was cut way too short to be connected).As far as we can tell all the connections are identical and the light switch and outlets are identical to the ones replaced

.Answer: Hi Kimberly,This should be an easy fix. All you need to do is remove the gold tab between the two gold screws and you top and bottom outlet will work individually
