I need help here. I'm trying to install new three way light switches. The available wires in the outlets are black (with a knot tied in---what does this mean?), blue and red. I'm trying to install Leviton three way decor switches and there instructions referenced different colored wires. My home was built in the 60's and when trying to replace the wires into the newer switches, the circuit breaker tripped. I think I have the wrong colored wires to the wrong screws in the new switch. I am perplexed and need HELP!!! Thank you.

Your question is confusing. You speak of receptacle and switch but don't make a statement that these are different subjects. Are you trying to replace a switch with a switch, or a receptacle with a switch?

More details needed
