Question about GE 18023 Dimmer Rocker OnOff with Slide White
Already have a dimmer by the door but don't need it. I can't get the lights to all work unless the switch by the door is in one position. up.
Bob, Not quite enough info to be sure how you have this wired, but here's a shot. 3 or 4 way dimming switches are designed to work with other 3 or 4 way on-off switches, not with another dimmer. I never tried this but it is no surprise that it might work only if you keep the dimming function of switch C in the full-bright position, because you are using two dimmers wired in series. For best operation, you should replace C with a regular 3 or 4 way switch.

Thank you for contacting FixYa with your electrical inquiry.
Yes! Both units are interchangeable.
The green wire is a ground and the box under the cover plate has a ground screw or provision for attaching the green ground wire. The two black will go to the existing leads. Usually screw on wire nuts are included in the new GE Dimmer Switch to make installation simple.
For safety be sure to trip the circuit breaker effecting that light circuit. It's usually located in the load center in the garage and should be well labeled by code requirements.
Hope this helps. Please keep us updated and remember to rate this answer.
