DWQA QuestionsWe installed a ring doorbell and replaced a light switch

We installed a ring doorbell and replaced a light switch in the garage. Now we have a wall in our house with a short somewhere and can’t get it to work.

We have flipped all the breakers, redid the ring and light switch and the short is still there. Any advise on how to fix this? The short isn’t on the same wall as the ring.

The blue arrows are pointing to the switches that won’t work. The doorway close to the fridge is the laundry room that leads to the garage. On the right is the entry way that goes to the front door where the ring is obviously. The wall with the fridge works but not on the other side of the pantry and the laundry room light doesn’t work.

Either have it done professionally or be a normal person and answer the door

The light switch in the garage, was it a three way? And you installed a regular switch?

See if you tripped a gfci somewhere

Your answer is probably going to be in that laundry room with a gfci outlet, they’re installed anywhere near water

Check wiring on installed switch.
If ok, go to all the other switches and check wiring. Check for additional GFCI’s in garage etc.
