Did you get the wires mixed up?

If you have a multimeter you can test the ohms on resistance range. Connect a meter lead to the one common wire, and 4 other wires which have equal ohms compared to each other.

If some have double the ohms, it means you got the common lead mixed up.

If you tell us the colours of the wires (or a photo) we can help you better.
