Dimmer Switch Wiring and Ceiling Fans

Electrical Question: I removed a ceiling fan and replaced with a new light fixture.

  • During the event I removed a dual pole switch and dimmer switch which were attached to the original fan thinking I could replace that with a dimmer switch only.
  • One other problem is there is a second switch on an opposite wall.
  • I hooked this up as I thought it was originally but now when I turn on power the light is on but one switch does nothing and the second blows the breaker.
  • I am sure I have screwed this up but could sure use some help to ‘right the ship’
