Dimmer to operate a single CREE LR6 LED fixtur

All I've found are dimmers that require 4 LR6 fixtures to operate properly. Probably because the LR6 only draws 12 watts.

We need to dim single LR6 fixtures. Perhaps you can recommend one.

Thanks for your help,

    Not a fan, but I couldn't find a category for lighting fixture dimmers

  • Anonymous Jan 24, 2009

    What criteria should I be looking for when selecting a dimmer for the LR6.

    The dimmers that are recomended do not seem to have any special features. What should I be looking for?

Simply Automated Dimmers drive standard AC loads as low as 1 watt. The work GREAT for CREE LED fixtures.

Why does leds hesitate coming on with lutron dimmer


Often led s hesitate even with single pole switch. It's probably not the dimmer. Led s get powered from a transformer inside the fixture and it just takes a second for them to get going. I've found its not consistant. The same two recessed lights have different start up times.

Hi Leonard,

I'm a licensed electrician and will be happy to help you get this working again. I suspect an incorrectly wired or incompatible switch or a load that is not designed for dimming. To know which one(s) is the problem and to be able to provide a solution, I need a little more information.

1) What was the old switch brand and model number?
2) What is the new Leviton switch's model number?
3) What type of light bulbs are you trying to operate in the 3 fixtures?
4) What is the number of and wattage of each lamp in the fixtures?
5) How many switches operate the lights?
5a) If more than one switch is used, what is the brand and model number of the other switch(es)?

Thanks

I have a dimmer switch that is backlit. The switch itself is flickering - havent noticed this before. The lights still work and the dimmer on the side of it works also. Should I be concerned


Hello.
Had this problem my self a while back, here's what I found out. Firstly, it may simply be the switch is faulty. If this was a new install, take it back and try another. But before that, get all relevant information about the lights you are dimming. Here's why: Some light fixtures are incompatible with dimmers. They may dim - but not properly. Some lights/fixtures require specific dimmers to be used: incandescent or not, total wattage in fixture, and so on. Having this information may save you a trip if it's actually not the switch. Good luck.

I am going to stick my neck out a little with this one although I agree with BoomerP. The clue of halogen bulbs is feeding my answer. Halogen bulbs require a high voltage transformer to operate and won't normally work with a dimmer but I never tried it. Bypassing the switch should bring them on though. If you have the proper voltage at the switch and they don't work with the switch bypassed, its probably a bad transformer in the fixture. Good Luck. Be careful.

Our lutron three way dimmers leak when off. There appears to be about 8 volts still going to the fixtures. That causes the transformers on the fixtures to sing when off. Probably not good for...


If each fixture has an individual transformer, the chace is that they are electronic (about the size of a matchbox car) If so, you have the wrong dimmer installed. You will need to install a MAELV (Electronic Low Voltage) Dimmer. The regular dimmers are set up for Magnetic Low Voltage and incandescent which work differently. http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/362219.pdf

Here is a link to the difference in how they work. Also, if they are a Low Wattage light like an LED, the dimmer may not have enough resistance to bleed off the excess voltage. The MAW-600 has a minimum load of either 25 or 40 watts. If you are operating LED's you may also need a Low Wattage Interface to act as a simulated load that wires in series with your lights. (lut-lbx)

If it gets too anoying until you get the proper dimmer, you can switch the Air Gap switch at the bottom to the off position. This completely disconnects the power to the load side of the dimmer.

Good Luck

Please describe the old light fixture and the new light fixture. If the new light fixture is fluorescent, then using a dimmer with it won't work and is a fire hazard - unless you have a specially designed ballast which is designed to be used with a standard dimmer. If that is what you have, then the ballast in your new fixture is bad.

Trying to hook up a dimmer switch it has a red black yellow and green wire the box has a black white and ground which wires get connected together?


For a single-pole installation:

1. Connect the 2 white wires together (one from the source and the other to/from the light fixture) - 2 wires
2. Connect the black wire from the source to the black wire on the dimmer switch - 2 wires
3. Connect the black wire to/from the light fixture to the red wire on the dimmer switch - 2 wires
4. Connect the ground wires - 3 wires
