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

Can I reuse a Lutron Maestro MAW-603 dimmer in a 2 way situation?


you should be able to by hooking up the black wire on the dimmer to the hot wire(that comes from the electrical panel) in the wall box and the red wire from dimmer to the switch leg(the wire that goes to light fixture). if the dimmer has a white wire(nuetral wire) you will need to hook that up to the white wires in the wall box....CAUTION!!! when removing the old 1 pole switch, there should only be 2 wires and possibly a green or bare copper ground wire attached to it. if either of the 2 wires(not the ground) are white, IT IS MISLABLED OR MISCOLORED. DO NOT hook the dimmers white wire to it cuz it will fry the dimmer. If this is the case, then most likley you do not have a nuetral in the wall box but look anyway for a couple of white wires tied together with a wire nut and stuffed in the back of the box. if you find those than most likely thats your neutral(check with a wiggy or meter to be sure) and thats where the dimmers white wire goes. hook up the dimmers green wire to a green or bare copper wire in the wall box and then put a wire nut on the dimmers red w/white stripe wire.

LED lights controlled by Lutron Homeworks panel won't turn off and is getting very hot


If it worked before the Homeworks Panel has failed, if not it is probably wired incorrectly and may have been damaged. Recheck all connections if they are correct replace the Lutron device.

Fan speed control on 2 way circuit


1) Guessing you have 3-way switch where 2 different switches control same Load (light, fan, motor). Unknown wiring, and unknown if fan and light are wired separately.

2) Google search for 3-way fan switch shows Leviton IPF05 with simple straight-forward wiring. Link below has instruction manual, and Live chat button located to right of LEVITON
http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ProductDetail.jsp?partnumber=IPF05-1LX&section=47082&minisite=10251

3) It appears that the Leviton device must replace Line side switch.

4) Uncertain if this device also controls fan since the wiring is so simple.

I had an electrician over to replace some low-voltage light bulbs that were too high for me to reach, and also a couple for which changing the bulb didn't work. He changed the bulbs and left one with...


I do not know what happened.
Check the circuit breaker.
The electrician is probably asking somebody else right now, because tradespeople want to know everything about their trade to expand skill and make money easier.
Lutron has customer support number for you and the electrician:
1-800-523-9644
Calling Lutron might narrow down what product you have, and isolate problem.
Once exact product is known, this will be helpful for the electrician.
Plus you can re-post a question on fixya, and expert will look up that product and give possible help. This will also help you double-check the electrician.
Between Lutron, the electrician, and fixya, a solution is probably reachable.

I have a Lutron Maestro MAW-600 switch connected to 2 pendant lights and the 2 pendant lights bulbs blew. I replaced the bulbs but the lights still do not come on. The Lutron switch flashes green rapidly...


Lutron Maestro MAW-600 manual:
Single-Pole 600 Watt Halogen/ Incandescent Dimmer (minimum 40 Watt)

You said pendant lights blew out.
How many total watts were those lights?
Did you remove aluminum break-away fins on side of device to match wattage?

Front indicator can be pulled out to cut power to circuit.
This is called FASS switch.
Try pulling out FASS switch and then pushing it back to see if it re-sets device.
Click breaker on-off to see if it resets device.
You replaced a single-pole switch that has two wires plug ground wire.
Each wire from switch goes to either screw on MAW-600 so it's hard to go wrong there.
Bare copper goes to green ground screw.
Otherwise, it looks like tech support is next step: 1800-523-9466

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:

If you have 3 white and 3 black as well as a ground,how do you hook it up ?


If I understand correctly, your are replacing a GFCI receptacle with another GFCI receptacle

And your existing GFCI has 3 black and 3 white wires

And there is not a switch involved in the changeover.

I downloaded the manual from Lutron
http://classic.lutron.com/CMS400/techinfopage.aspx?id=22163

Every wiring diagram in manual shows:
Black wires connect to brass-colored screws
White wires connect to silver-colored screws

The brass and silver colored screws are typical of all residential receptacles. The color-code tells the electrician which terminal gets the black and white wires.

Are you having a problem putting 3 wires onto 2 screws?
It is a common problem.
You can buy a short piece of white and black wire at hardware store
Lets work on the black wires as example:
Strip back insulation on short piece of black wire
Hold together two of your black wires and start twisting them together
Now add the short wire to the two black wires you started twisting
Now twist together the two blacks and short black
So three wires are twisted together and you have a short lead that can connect to screw on GFCI
Put a wire nut over the twisted wire
Now you're ready to connect other end of short black wire to brass-colored screw
This reduces the number of wires that connect to screws

My Lutron Rotary Fan Control FSQ-2FH-DK. The box saye can be used for a 3-way as well as single pole, I want to wire it as a 3-way but the unit has only 2 black wires and 1 green wire. how can I wire this...


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.

Have a Lutron Skylark SF-10P need to wire to existing 3 wires


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