SOURCE: 1 way and 3 way dimmer switches

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

SOURCE: I can't get the yellow wire of the dimmer slider

Most of this style lightolier product requires the proper remote such as the zpr3. Leviton illumitech is a similar design, but uses regular 3 way wiring.
There are others out there as well, that do not require the remote.

SOURCE: I would like to replace

The zp600 is the master, and the zpr-3 is the remote. With only one location you need to use the zp600. For multiple locations, you use the zp600 at the load side and zpr3's at other locations with all the yellows hooked together, and all the blacks hooked together except the black going right to the light. This hooks to the red at the zp600

SOURCE: I have same 2 dimmers on a circuit, easyset 600

There is no technical reason indeed why you cannot do this. It should work fine. All dimmers work in the same fashion, and use a TRIAC to chop up the voltage and deliver it to the light, accordingly any one will work in place of another.

Lightolier 3 way remote wiring


If you have determined the wiring to be correct, then yes, the remote is probably defective..

According to Lightolier literature, your Lightolier OS600 is called a "strap dimmer". Having 540W on a 600w rated switch is pretty close to the limit (90%) of the switch, and will cause the switch to fail sooner than say a 300w load. The 600w rating of the switch applies only if all the heating sink fins are in place. Often times, when installing in a box with another switch or dimmer, fins must be removed to allow the switch to physically fit. If any fins are removed, the rating of the switch is reduced. Page 30 of the manual shows that a 600w strap dimmer that has a single fine removed is reduced to a 500w capacity dimmer, and if both fins are removed, it is reduced to a 400w dimmer. You may find that you will need a 1000w dimmer to reliably gain control of your 540w load, as it will control 600w even with both fins removed. This derating is required due to the heat created by the dimmer. Heat is a killer for electronics, and solid state dimmers are no exception.

Check out page 32 of that manual. On it, are wiring diagrams for dimmers and switches. I believe your is figure "G" that shows the 120v "hot" (black) connected to the black wire of ALL switches, the yellow wires of ALL the switches are connected together, but are not connected to anything else, the 120v neutral (white) connects to the MASTER white wire AND light fixture white wire and finally, the MASTER red wire connects to the light fixture black wire.

It is also important to note that these switches are for standard tungsten incandescent and quartz halogen lamps ONLY. They are NOT suitable for CFL, Fluorescent or other types frequently found in commercial / industrial buildings such as neon or other gas lamps such as Metal Halide, Mercury Vapor, High Pressure Sodium, etc.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I am replacing a Lightolier 3-way Dimmer switch with a Leviton IPI06-1LX Dimmer switch. When I install the dimmer switch it works fine. But the on/off regular wall switch won't turn the light on or...


It depends. Some dimmers are considered "smart dimmers," where the control on the other end of the 3-way has to be intelligent enough to send a signal back to the dimmer. If the Lightolier dimmer was a smart dimmer, then chances are that the 3-way control was designed to talk only to that specific dimmer. The Leviton product you replaced it with is a simple, basic dimmer - it should work in conjunction with a simple, basic 3-way switch.

If the 3-way control already IS a simple, basic 3-way switch - then I would simply re-check the wiring of the dimmer you replaced.

We have a lioghtolier 600 volt dimmer switch talking to an HAI OmniPro and it stopped working. It has two other switches nearby and they work fine. The problem switch has no blue LED on when the light is...


Recycle the the dimmer switch and replace it with a new one. The dimmer switch was probably rated at 600 Watts. Therefore, 600 Watts/120 Volt which you house voltage equals= 5 amperes.
5 amps is the maximum current for the dimmer switch.

That means the voltage is 120V/240V with max current 5amp/2 1/2 amp. The HAI OminPro is drawing to much current and it's exceeding the the current limits of the dimmer switch.

Get a new dimmer switch that maximum current of 15 amps with 120 volt house voltage. That will fix you problem. GB....stewbison

i assume lightolier track lights? loose wire or loose connection either in ceiling or at switch... if they are all blinking then it is most likely the switch.

Flashing lights instead of shutting off


14 years does seem like a reasonable life span for a dimmer. My suggestion is to turn the circuit off, take the dimmer out, wire nut the two wires together, turn the circuit on. If the light comes on normally get yourself a new dimmer ($10). Make sure to turn the circuit back off before installing the new dimmer.
