2, Switch Wiring Diagram Ceiling Fan - The black tape isn't a mistake. That should be the feed to the transfer and the black is the switch leg that returns to the mild. Then the mild is connected to the neutral with the others. Now we get into some code issues. This setup changed into probably criminal whilst the residence changed into built. The 3-manner white twine isn't always marked because obvious switch loops failed to want to be. There is no actual impartial going to the a long way 3-manner because code did no longer require that. Now it does. Bringing it to current code could require pulling a 12/4 or 14/four cable among the two switch containers.
If you can tolerate it, i would pass the 2-ways to the existing double transfer and the three-manner or clever transfer within the full-peak area. Switches will be cheaper and greater available in case you do. The ceiling container at the left is how i think it ought to be wired, with one exception. Note that there may be black tape proven at the neutral going to the sink mild transfer. This transfer isn't a 3-way switch so i think that the black tape is a mistake. The recent from the ceiling field goes to the switch which then sends it to the mild fixture. The impartial from the light fixture ought to hook up with the impartial from the ceiling field in the transfer field and all of the neutrals are connected together in the ceiling container as shown.
Now, approximately that marked neutral. It's miles without a doubt a neutral, despite having a marking this is normally used and required to re-designate white wires as "hot". If this designation is used somewhere else within the house, then i might argue this usage violates nec due to being inconsistent (one hundred ten.12 workmanlike). Otherwise it's, nicely, arguable. Edit i see your prolonged diagram explains the kitchen light transfer became no longer a lifeless quick however simply power to the transfer. You had the white marked black but have corrected that during your final drawing. Using pink for the switched power and tourists is the better technique as others talked about. Your final drawing appears electrically sound. Together with your modern wiring it is not feasible, but the nec requires a neutral at switch places with some exceptions. If you are not being inspected you may recall this 'grandfathered' wiring. In the future, you have to take a neutral to the switch place.
