Question about Electrical Supplies

I have just installed the Lutron Maestro® 600 Watt Single Pole Dimmer, White in my master bedroom. The outlet is connected to a ceiling fan. Every time I turn the fan off with the light on, the light will strobe. When I turn the fan back on, it stops. Any ideas as to stopping this problem?

YOu need to make sure that the maestro you installed is designed for use with electric motors. CHeck out this page on the lutron site... http://www.lutron.com/CMS400/page.aspx?id=16955&mn=1797. THese are the dimmers you can use with a fan. If it is in the same box the magnetic interference can cause the types of reactions you are mentioning.

If this is not the problem you need more info-- is the light part of the fan, is there a separate wire for fan motor and light? what type of switch is controlling the light (assuming the maestro dimmer is controlling the fan motor etc...

The LED indicators on my Lutron Maestro continuously run up and down without stopping and the lights (or fan) will not work? It seems as if the entire switch is frozen... Whats the problem?


1) If this installation was working before, the Maestro has a small pull-out circuit breaker that lets you reset the device. This is called the FASS Front Accessible Service Switch, located at bottom of dimmer where it meets cover plate.
Open sample Lutron Maestro dimmer manual to see FASS illustration
http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/0301106A.pdf

2) If this is new installation, then double-check your wiring and check that load matches dimmer capacity: 600 watt incandescent or halogen, which apparently excludes CFLs.
Some electronic devices have shortened lifespan on circuits that are not clean. Use circuit analyzer on nearby outlet that is on same breaker to see if line has interference.


3) Lutron has customer service numbers:

I have a Meastro dimmer MAW-600 W that is installed, but the light does not turn on and the LED keeps blinking. Any idea what the problem can be?

3) I don't see MAW-600 W listed among Maestro dimmers, so I don't have that specific manual.
http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro%C2%AE+dimmer+%26+switch

4) Amazon certainly shows the MAW-600 W, in case you need a replacement.

I have two black wires in box attached to regular light switch & want to know if I can install a Skylark S-603PG single pole dimmer switch which has one black , one red&white, red and green wires


This is single-pole -or- 3-way dimmer
Manual shows on following link:
http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/0301107A.pdf

1) Manual says: The red/white wire is not used in a single-pole application. Twist a wire
nut over this wire for a single-pole application.
2) Green wire connects to bare ground wire. Or bare ground to bare ground.
3) Connect dimmer-red and dimmer-black to either insulated wire that came off of old switch

Ok i installed the Maestro IR on a switch that runs a celing fan with a light on it. i turned the power back on in the room and the light was flickering and the fan was unresponsive. please help!!


Lutron Maestro IR shows several model numbers:
http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro+IR%C2%AE+dimmer

You posted under MIR600 single pole digital fade dimmer for incandescent and halogen.
Installation manual:
http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/030864b.pdf
If this is not your dimmer, then add a comment with exact model number so I can read that manual and look for trouble spots.

The manual does not say 'Fan'
It appears this dimmer is for incandescent and Halogen lights.
Manual gives Lutron 24hr/7day tech support number 1-800-523-9466

We have an older maestro style lutron dimmer switch with a horizontal slide button at the bottom that can turn it on and off. we are using this button to operate the light b/c the vertical...


These in-wall devices stop working and need to be replaced from time to time.
There are no repair parts.
Generally dimmers don't last as long as ordinary light switch, because they are electronic instead of mechanical.

Lutron makes the widest selection of dimmers.
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/Pages/DimmersSwitches.aspx

Use link above to identify dimmer.
For example Skylark dimmer.

Then google search for a replacement.
For example: single pole 600 watt lutron skylark dimmer
Or: 3-way 600 watt skylark dimmer
Lutron also makes 1800 watt dimmers for larger loads.
