After installing my own dimmer this morning (Leviton touch pad) and encountering a most annoying humming sound that I thought was coming from the switch area, I started researching. One source suggested replacing the light bulbs with a higher quality bulb, which tend to have sturdier filaments. I replaced all six bulbs and now have no humming. Hope this works for you.

The problem is most likely with the bulb. The filament will vibrate when you dim it. If you use a lower wattage lamp, smaller lamp or a rough service lamp, you will minimize the problem.

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 rania dimmer how does this connect to an existing 2 way system and what connections are required


The question is unclear.
Switches are single-pole or 3-way.
Single pole switches have 2 screws plus green ground screw.
3-way have 3 screws plus green ground screw.
I don't see Lutron rania dimmer

Identify your switch and your dimmer and add a comment.
I will look up the information.

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.

Lutron Glyder Slide Dimmer GL-603P (new dimmer switch) on - off by pushing the button in center of knob -- pushing button does not turn dimmer on -- seems to be stuck in the off position -- is dimmer...


Sadly, yes, it just sounds like the switch got stuck. You should be able to yank that knob off and try to manually unlatch it with something thin and long (like a pencil) - just, do me a favor, and make sure whatever you use isn't conductive, there shouldn't be any exposed electrically, but just be safe about it.

If that doesn't work, call their tech support center at 1-800-523-9466 - they will most likely replace it for you.

How to install


Lutron S2-LFSQ is made to control one ceiling paddle fan & 1 light. Switch will not work on florescent lights.
See manual

To use this product, your fan and light must already be controlled by 2 separate switches.

If you have just one switch that turns on the light & fan together, the S2-LFSQ will not work (without additional wiring).

Okay, you have two switches. One switch turns fan on-and-off. The other switch turns light on-and-off.

Here is wiring diagram from manual: See diagram larger

8263536.jpg

Here's how to wire:
-Before disconnecting wires from existing switches, mark each wire with tape and pen.
-There is one wire that feeds power to both switches > mark this the 'Hot wire' and it connects to Lutron black wire (if you are unsure about this wire, remove switches, separate wires, turn on power and test each wire to bare ground, tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power, Tester lights up on Hot wire)
-The switch that controls fan > mark this the 'Fan wire' and it will connect to Lutron Yellow wire
-the switch that controls light > mark this the 'light wire' and it will connect to Lutron Red wire
-Lutron Green wire or bare wire connects to bare ground wire.

Where can I find replacement knobs for the dual slider lutron fan light switches?


I don't think they're a standard off-the-shelf item. But I would call Lutron's tech support center at 1-800-523-9466 - they're available 24/7 and they'll probably just send you some.

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.

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.
