Hi. My lutron grafik eye after its turned on for half an hour starts switching on and off several times until it remain off for a long period of time, showing no sings of having ac power, after few h


The dimmer when purchased probably said that it was for incondescent lighting only and you have compact fluorescents. Replace them with regular bulbs and the problem will go away. People who buy and install their own dimmers may inadvertantly buy one that is for motor control only or fluorescents only and not read the instructions on this.

Testing photo cell


These devices typically require a minute or two to change state from ON to OFF when the the threshold of light and darkness is reached. Place black electrical tape over the sensor and allow a minute for it to turn the light on. Make sure that no light shines into the sensor or that the sensor can not see light in the night time.

Lastly, double check instructions and wiring. White should be connected to BOTH the neutral incoming power AND the light fixture's white wire(s). Most times, black is 120V source, and red is the switched 120V out to the fixture.

If it isn't working, make sure the lamps are good. This photocell is suitable for use with compact fluorescent lamps, fluorescent lamps and other fixtures that use ballasts and transformers as long as they do not require more than 840 VA.

Good luck!

I saw your post on fixya.com - I have done repair of the Lytemode units a few times. Both the dimmers and the controllers. If the memory is not working that is the control unit. If the unit will not turn off, the LM-2000 dimmer might have a shorted SCR and that makes the unit stay on. Let me know if you still need help on this problem.

I have Lutron Maestro switches throughout my home and love them. However, two of them are now difficult to use. They do work eventually, but I have to press repeatedly and very firmly to get them to turn...


The best thing you can do is call Lutron's tech support at 1-800-523-9466. They're available 24/7 and get probably point you in a better direction than being able to diagnose / troubleshoot over e-mail / this forum. Generally speaking, I don't think they will replace your plastics. It is possible for it to get worn over time - but that could be the plastic, or it could be the buttons within the unit. Either way, like I said, they probably won't recommend anything to repair the unit, but you can request that they replce it - especially if its only been in use for 3-5 years.

Problem with 1000 w sliding dimmer switch; lights stay dim regardless of slider position but eventually brighten


I think you need a provide a little more information in order for there to be a possible solution. I'm particular confused by your use of the term "eventually" - these are analog dimmers, there are no "smarts" involved with this products, so I don't get how it would magically turn itself on to a higher brightness. Regardless, you will be able to get a much quicker answer by just calling Lutron directly. Their tech support number is 1-800-523-9466, they're available 24/7, and it won't cost you anything. They can help you diagnose whether its something related to installation or whether the product has simply hit the end of its life, and they can probably assist you with gettting a replacement as well.

Hi, i have a 2gang switch DOUBLE dimmer. I have two problems; all wires i have with the exception of the land one are red, as i do not remember where the blue one was connected to. Than where do i connect...


ok this may have to be a two part answer.. but i will try to walk you thru it.. First you must figure out which wier is the power wire. First turn the power off at the circuit breaker. Then , separate all the wires and pull them out so that you can test them. Put the power back on. With a tester or a lamp with bare wires, connect on of the tester wires to the ground (land). then touch each of the other wires until the tester lights up. That is your hot (power) wire. Mark it with tape. Then, connect one of your tester wires to the hot wire, and touch the other tester wire to one wire at a time to find the neutral wire. Mark that wire. Now. we have to find which wires go to the lights. connect one wire to the neutral wire. Touch one wire at a time to the hot wire. Eventually one light fixture should light up. Mark those two wires. Repeat until all the lights wires are identified. If you have a 3way switch then you will have an extra wire. I will refer you to a 3way wiring site to help you figure out how to hook up the switch as it would be too long to explain in words only. http://www.electrical-online.com/wiringdiagrams.htm

Hera Touch Dimmer not working


if what you are refering to is a touch lamp where you touch the base and the lamp changes brightness ... if it just stays on full brightness all the time .. then thats a shorted triac .. that a transistor like part inside the unit .. they frequently go bad when a light bulb burns out ... when you see a bulb burn out you will someitmes notice a very bright flash ... thats the tungstun filiment evaporating and making a highly conductive atmosphere for a second .. huge amount of current can flow for this brief period .. that often damages solid state devices like yours ... unless you are handy with these kinds of repairs then you might just want to purchase a new touch dimmer replacement circuit ... usually available at large hardware stores ..

End of Run Dimmer Switch Installation


The store doesn't know what they are talking about. And I can't believe they told you to just keep switching wires. Hitting the wrong wires is an easy way to short the dimmer switch out. Take it back and go to Home Depot or Lowes and buy the same type switch you took out.

T600WV dimmer fails when a 25 watt bulb in a fixture burns out


I have had my fair share of this happening. Light dimmers use a solid state semiconductor piece of electronics called a "Triac". The Triac works by switching on and off about 120 times per second so the lightbulbs will be receiving a pulsating voltage. Lowering the knob makes the off time longer so the lights dim. What can happen is the Triac is faily sensitive to current spikes that blowing bulbs can cause the Triac to fail. Triacs often fail closed so that it will not dim the lights any more. The manufacturer can better protect the triac from spikes, but they don't to cut costs. They work most of the time for a while until a blowing bulb takes it out. I am just attributing it to cheapness, and I have had good luck with the box stores and manufacturers giving me a replacement. Please do try and get refund/replacement.
