Question about Cooper Wiring Devices 6009W-K ROTARY DIMMER REPLACEMENT KNOB WHITE
3 way dimmer switch has 2 red wires and 2 black wires and 1 way dimmer has 2 green wires and 2 black wires, one person at home depot told me it can be done to use 3 way for a 1 way switch !?
My question is "Can you use 3 way dimmer switch as a 1 way dimmer switch ?"
Since a single pole, one way, switch only costs a dollar I personally would not do this but if you must:
Put the hot incoming wire on the dark colored screw, and the wire going to the switched device on the top right brass screw. It really doesn't matter, as the switch will work either way, you may just have to turn it over to have the "on" position up.

The answer to your question depends on the manufacturer and type of 3 way dimmer you are using... generally you can use a 3 way switch as a single pole switch, but whether or not this holds true with the dimmer you are using depends. Let me know what you are trying to acomplish and model numbers mfgs of what you have and I'll try and help
