How to fit dimmer switch



The dimmer switch you select will depend on the type of bulbs you will be using. The 'original type ' of dimmer works with regular incandescent bulbs and halogen bulbs only. They cost around $15.00. Then there are dimmers for compact florescent (cfl) bulbs and LED lights that are dimmable, as well for regular light bulbs. These types of dimmers are more expensive, ranging in price form around $40.00 upwards.
Light Switches Dimmers

If you are replacing a single pole switch ( just one switch that operates lights) you'll need a single pole dimmer. If you are replacing a 3-way switch ( two switches that operate the same light) you'll need a 3-way dimmer.
Installing the dimmer is pretty straight forward. All dimmers come with installation instructions. Make sure you turn off the circuit breaker for the particular switch you are replacing.

I want to install the 18023 ge dimmer in the middle of a 4-way switch


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.

Leviton 6793 does not work on LED lamps?


Look at product number again to see if numbers posted are correct.
Also include what type of device this is: rotary dimmer? slide dimmer? touch dimmer? Switch? single-pole application or 3-way? And include what you are replacing.

Hi I've got a Lutron electronic slide dimmer


Let's start whittling away some of the information...

First of all, the ZP260QE is from Lightolier,so you may want to give their tech support center a call.
Secondly, ignore the continuity tests, they tell you nothing. Continuity on the secondary is expected because you're on the output of a "true" transformer, which will look like a short on a DC-supplied continuity test. The input to an ELECTRONIC transformers is a switching power supply, which will not look like anything when supplied by a DC voltage/current during a continuity test. Those test results appear normal to me. The +/- 60 also makes sense, if you've measuring voltages on the output of a dimmer, the impedance of the dimmer's off-state and the impedence of the multi-meter makes for some screwy readings that don't always make sense.

Most dimmers rated for electronic low-voltage have protection circuitry built within them to make sure they're not overloaded. Normal incandescent dimmers will just get warmer than usual, these guys should shut down - perhaps that's what you're seeing.

My two suspiciions are either (a) the additional pendent light, combined with the existing track lights, tripped the overload protection, or (b) when you added the pendent light, you got too much of a current inrush that shorted out the components within the dimmer.

Changed out 3-way switch with 6633-p and it will not operate light. this is a 2 location 3-way being used on a dining room chandelier.


Look at 3-way drawing in 6633 manual.
Notice that device has to be installed to Hot wire.
Only one of your 3-way switches will have the Hot wire.

Change device with other 3-way switch.
Make careful note of which wire connects to dark-colored screw. This is the common screw.

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.

I have an overhead panel of eight 4' flourescent lights which I believe are each 40 watts. The dimmer switch that controls them all as a unit has failed. Any suggestions about where to get a replacement...


Google-search: florescent slide dimmer
You have 320 Watts, 120 volts, and the circuit uses 2.6 amps.
Volts x Amps = Watts.

1) The florescent slide dimmers seem to cost $100-120

2) If you search for florescent dimmer, the cost is lower than the slide dimmer.
Leviton sells for $50

Lights can be turned off and on but not dimming. I felt the wall plate was hot to the touch. The dimmer was working until bulbs were replaced.


If your wallplate is hot, that is a sign of trouble, and possible electrical fire. That dimmer is not made for the load, or it is going bad.

Turn off the dimmer immediately. Do not use the dimmer at all. Replace with a wall switch until you have the correct dimmer.

Each dimmer is rated for Watts. Ordinary electrical switch is rated by amps. Ordinary 15 Amp electrical switch can handle up to 1400 Watts. This means 14 - 100 watt bulbs.

Dimmers are usually not rated for 1400 Watts. They have 500-600 Watt rating. Look at the side of your dimmer for Wattage information that is usually printed on dimmer.

Heavier-duty dimmers cost more and can carry more wattage. Some dimmers carry up to 1800 watts. These kinds of dimmers have aluminum heat sink visible right on the face of dimmer.

In any case, your dimmer is an electrical fire hazard and should be replaced. Add up total wattage of your lights, and read new dimmer package when buying.

Up-vote if this information is helpful. Thanks for the feedback.

I attempted to install a slide dimmer yesterday. when i pulled the existing switch off I had three black wires (two pushed in to the back of the switch and one wound around a screw) and one white wire...


The white and the black wires are both hot wires, and the green wire is for earth ground only. The green wire does not belong hooked up to the white wire.

The two black field wires should be attached to one side of the dimmer switch (one of the black wires from the dimmer switch)

The white field wire should be attached to the other side of the dimmer switch (the other black wire from the dimmer switch)

The green wire from the dimmer switch should be hooked up to earth ground only (any un-insulated copper wire that is inside the switch/outlet housing) and if you can not find it attach the green wire to the inside of the light switch outlet housing and be sure that it is attached to metal.

The other hall light switch that you are talking about must be connected inline with that light switch you trying to turn into a dimmer, and it should operate again nomally once you have connected that light switch properly, and if not check for any tripped circuit breakers.

Light dimmer issue


the light on the switch does not men it is wired correctly, it only means that you have supplied power at that point. Without knowing more its hard to say, but I'll assume this is a single switch operating a single unit. That being the case, and depending on your fixture, occassionally wires must be grouped together on the switch side. Also quite often these switches are simply defective, and must be returned. If you think you have it correct then its probably a bad switch.
