    I bought the energy efficient bulbs specifically stating they were dimmable but they are still blinking?  I have the MAW-600 Dimmer switch.

It's not the dimmer causing the problem it's the bulbs. They are like mini florescent lights and are not dimable. You will need to either change them to regular incandescent lights or purchase the dimable type of energy efficient bulbs. They are a bit pricey but they will work. Let me know and don't forget to rate me. Thanks

I believe my power source is in the ceiling. I just want to wire a light but use a leviton switch and dimmer at the wall. Can't figure this one out. Can you help. There are two red wires, one black and...


Question needs more details. Let me answer as if you have one light and one switch, and one cable coming into switch box from ceiling.

Usually a switch-dimmer combo operates 2 different Loads (lights).
One light is controlled by switch, other by dimmer.

If power source is in ceiling, then one cable enters switch box.
Cable has black, white and ground wires
Old switch had 2 brass screws where black and white wires connect
Black wire brings Hot down from ceiling, and white wire connects back to Load (fan).
Neutral wires are in ceiling box, and not inside switch box, and are discussed.

With new dimmer: Black Hot wire from ceiling connects to dimmer black wire.
White Load wire connects to one of the red wires.
The other red wire goes to another Load, which is unknown at this point.

Add a comment for more free help. Say what cables and wires enter box, and what Loads you are controlling. Also add exact model number so expert can reference manual. Levition instruction sheets and manuals usually have toll free number.

Also take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.
For a price, expert works with you via e-mail or phone while you work on circuit or any do-it-yourself project.
Fixya is always less expensive than a service call.

My Hunter ceiling fan model 21332 lights are blinking but I did not find the watt governor on the light assembly. How can I fixed the blinking light problem


If the lights are blinking when the the fan is on, the blinking is probably caused by vibration of the fan running. Which may indicate a loose wiring connection within the light kit housing. Or the light kit is not wired properly to the fan. In any event, the only way to check this is start taking the light kit apart were it attaches to the fan and search for loose connections (wire nuts). If none are found, continue to the electrical connections where the fan is mounted to the ceiling. If the light kit is controlled by a dimmer switch on the wall, the dimmer switch may also be the culprit. Be sure to turn the circuit breaker off to the line that feeds the fan before attempting any repairs.

I am installing a 3-way dimmer switch. The installation instructions only describe placing the switch at the location that has always has 120 volts. Is it possible to install the 3-way dimmer switch at...


Yes. The dimmer can be installed at either location - I think the instructions only describe the one location just to attempt to keep it simple.

To connect it at the other location, use the instructions you have, except where it says to connect to the house-wire that has 120-volts on it (connected to the breaker), instead, connect it to the house-wire running to the light fixture.

I AM REPLACING A LUTRON DIMMER SWITCH AND HAVE i THINK MADE ALL THE RIGHT CI=CONNECTIONS - COULD A FAULTY GROUNDING BE THE PROBLEM?


As a general rule, grounding will not affect operation of dimmer.
Type of dimmer, type of switch being replaced, type of load, and how you connect wires will affect dimmer.

Here is Lutron dimmer switch page
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/Pages/DimmersSwitches.aspx

What is the load? Are you wiring dimmer to a ballast? Or fan? Or incandescent lights? Or florescent lights?
Are you replacing a 2-way or 3-way switch?
What color are your dimmer wires?
How many wires were connected to switch?
Can you re-install the switch, and know where each wire went?
Did you replace a light with a fan, and then want the dimmer to slow the fan? Not every dimmer will work with a fan, or florescent lights.
Dimmers cannot dim LED lights.

If I know what type switch you are replacing, and the type of load you want to control, and the specific dimmer you have, I can answer the question.

Newly installed Leviton dimmer switch humming at the switch


Unfortunately, the hum is normal for operation of that type of dimmer at low levels.  Sometimes the lamp filaments will also "sing" a high pitched sound.

Humming inside the switch


Is it connected to a fan motor also? - most dimmers are for lights only - if there is a ceiling fan connected you may experience a humming sound from the dimmer

Lutron Dimmer Probelm


You may want to consider getting an "electronic" dimmer vs. a manual knob or slider. Consider using a Maestro (MA-600-XX where XX is the color). The Maestro fits into a decora opening so you may also want to get a new wallplate (Lutron makes these in a screwless version: CW-1-XX where XX is the color).
Hope this helps.
