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.

Fan blades touching


From what you say, either the fan blades are not made for that fan or more probably someone got a replacement light fixture kit and it's not compatible. Is there a possibility that you can adjust the angle of the light fixture, i.e. are there 3-4 small lights that can be angled?

Hello. I need help with my fan, please. I have hampton bay ac-527 nn sku# 360-424 . Trying To remove light To replace burned out bulb light but having trouble removing. HELP ME PLEASE. Mike


You got me wondering about a fan I have with an enclosed bowl-like light fixture (I don't know how closely this resembles your model, but bulb access is not immediately obvious on it either). I looked on top of the light section and found a #2 Phillips screw on the top plate of the light fixture near the rim. It seems likely that loosening or removing it will let the bowl come out at the bottom of the fixture so you can get at the bulb. You will probably need a short-handled screwdriver to get in under the motor housing. There are also three #2 Phillips screws going into the side of the cylindrical section below the fan blades at the bottom; this section has the fan and light chain-operated switches attached to it. Those probably attach the entire light fixture to the rest of the fan.

How to wire this fan


The wiring on most paddle / ceiling fans id such:

White = Fan and Light neutral or "common"
Black = Fan line voltage or "hot"
Blue = Light line voltage or "hot"
Green = safety ground

If you are replacing an existing light fixture - be sure to replace the ceiling box with one designed for use with a fan - as per electrical code. If the existing box had only 2 wires (or 3 counting the ground) that connected to the old light fixture and it was controlled from a wall switch, the wiring would be fixture white to ceiling white, fixture black and fixture blue to ceiling black (or red) and fixture green to ceiling bare ground or connected to the metal box. This would power both the fan and light whenever the wall switch was on and the pull chains for each were also on. This is also the preferred wiring for replacement of a pull chain type light fixture (no wall switch present).

If there are other wires in the box that previously were not connected to the old light fixture, using a meter or tester - determine if there is constant power between the ceiling white wire and any of the these other wires (test with the wall switch on and off to be sure). If you do have constant power available, you might consider using the wall switch to control only the light, and using the pull chain to operate the fan (or vice-versa). Simply connect the black (for fan) or the blue (for light) to the "constant power on" wire and that part of the fixture will work by pull chain only - regardless of the wall switch position. If the fan can be shut off by the wall switch, it is very important that the wall switch remain a toggle (or on / off switch), do NOT replace with a dimmer type switch.

If you'd prefer to operate the fan and light completely independently of each other - you can purchase a 3rd party fan & light remote control device for between $30 - $50.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rate my reply. Thanks!

Your remote control I would assume includes a dimmer for the light. CFL bulbs are not compatible with dimmers. If it has a dimmer, you must use incandescent bulbs.

The fan/light will not come on with the remote. Yes remote batteries are new. The light fixture have power. I think the model # is JY97381. receiver # is UC7067RC. Unsure how to fix this problem. Can u...


Hello Susan,

If the indicator light on your hand-held transmitter lights up when you press the buttons, it normally means it's working. The problem is probably with the UC7067 receiver in the fan. One sure way to destroy the UC7067 is to have the power going to it controlled by a dimmer switch on the wall. If this is the case, replace the dimmer switch with a standard on/off toggle or an in-wall transmitter. You can find both a replacement UC7067 receiver and either another hand-held transmitter RC-210 or an in wall transmitter WC-210 at this address: http://www.fanmanlighting.com/shop/pc/viewCategories.asp?idCategory=57

Hope this helps!

Dimmer switches


The switch you have is a "3-way" switch. It is used when you want to controll the light from two locations. What you want is called a "single pole" switch. However, you can make the 3 way work. You will notice that of the 3 screws on the switch two of them are the same color and one is a different color from the other two. This different colored one is called the "common" terminal.

Of the two wires that you have one is a "hot" and has power on it all the time, the other is a "switched leg" it goes directly to the light fixture.

To make the 3 way switch work like a single pole, attach the "hot" wire to the "common" terminal, and the "switched leg" to one of the two screws that are the same color. If the first one doesn't work then the other will. (or change the position of the switch)

A 3 way switch switches or "throws" from the common terminal to one of the other two screws normally called "travelers", when you change the position of the switch it throws from the common terminal to the other traveler.

Hope that helps and good luck. Make sure to turn the power off before attaching the switch to the wires. Never install a dimmer on a hot circuit, it's a great way to ruin them.
