    "Three wire" meaning hot, neutral and ground, or do you want to use the dimmer as a three-way switch?

We have a Lutron, Skylark S-10 dimmer switch in our MRI room at the Catholic Medical Center in Manchester, NH, which controls (4) Kirlin RR00723-45 recessed can lights w/ 120PAR38 lamps. The problem is...


I would call their tech support line at 1-800-523-9466 (available 24/7). The fluttering is obviously not normal, but in an environment such as an MRI room, there are more troubleshooting steps involved than I think could be delivered in this type of textual back-&-forth environment.

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 have a DL-3PSLHW-WH switch with no wiring diagram. It is single pole or 3-way. Need diagram.


You posted under Lutron 3-way dimmer.

You didn't say the number of screw terminals on device or color of those screws.
If your device has two brass screws, then it is single pole.
If your device has 2 brass screws and 1 dark screw, then device is 3-way
If you are replacing 3-way switch, identify wire on dark screw >> connect this wire to dark screw on dimmer. Other two wires connect to either brass screw.

If device has wires instead of screws, the color of those wires is an important clue.
Answer back with the colors of those wire and it is easier to help.

Different dimmers are suitable for different types of lighting.
In an effort to help you, I searched my files for Lutron dimmers.
Lutron has 17 dimmer types, with numerous models under each type
They don't show DL-3PS
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/Pages/DimmersSwitches.aspx

Lutron has NT-3PS
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/NovaTDimmer/Pages/ModelNumbers.aspx

The NT-3PS is a 3-way dimmer.
Here is wiring manual:

Lutron Dimmer manuals
http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro%C2%AE+dimmer+%26+switch

Lutron manuals show a couple things that might be affecting you lights.
1) Wattage: If you have wrong wattage dimmer
2) Type of light bulb: Dimmers work on different types of bulbs
3) Wiring: You say you got 3 wires going to the chandelier? Why you got 3 wires? Is this a 3 way switch? Are the chandelier bulbs wired separately so you can control groups of bulbs with different switches?
Does the dimmer have 3 screws? A dark-colored screw and 2 brass screws? If so, then that sounds like a 3-way dimmer. A 3-way, is where more than one switch controls the same light.

Does the dimmer have 2 screws? Then that dimmer controls a single circuit. Your black Hot wire from breaker box connects to one screw and the black wire to Load connects to other screw.
A quick glance at Lutron wiring manual shows that Hot and Load wires connect to either screw.
The question is your 3-wires from the chandelier ... does the black Hot wire from breaker arrive in the ceiling box first? Or does it arrive in the wall box first? If your Hot arrives in ceiling box, then the Hot must come down to the switch box and connect to a screw on the dimmer >>> a second wire connects to other screw on dimmer and travels up to the ceiling box where it connects to black wire on chandelier. The white wire on chandelier connects to white Neutral.
4) Dimmer might be bad

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.

I don't think that model is for a 3 way switch . It is for fan speed control only. Green is ground, and one incoming and one outgoing "hot" wire. You will need a different part number such as:

Lutron skylark s-10p 1000w dimmer. why is one


This video from the Lutron site shows the Diva switch but it is the video for the Skylark single pole switch also. It makes no mention of one wire being a larger gauge and does not differentiate which wire connects to line power and which to load. I do not think the wire gauge makes any difference.

Trying to hook up a Lutron fan control and dimmer


The old switch is just a single pole switch. The new one is for fan speed control. You need to use a regular single pole switch like you had. Or you can use a single pole switch on the Lutron you bought if you can figure out which wires to use. Do you have a meter?

You have to have a special ballast on the light to dim fluorescent light fixtures. You also have to have a special dimmer.
