SOURCE: I have just installed 2 Leviton decora switch with

This is a single pole light switch and should be wired as any other SP switch. The only difference is that is has a pilot light. All the white neutral wires are tied together and then pushed back in the box with none connected to the switch. The grounds are tied together with a jumper wire connected to the green screw on the switch. That will leave you with 2 or more black wires. If you have just two normally you can connect them to the two screws on the switch and it does not matter which screws. However it may be that with the pilot light you need to connect the wire going to the light to the top screw and the power wire to the bottom or vice versa. Try both ways. If you have more than 2 black wires you need to connect the incoming power black wire and outgoing power black wires together and then jump to one of the screws on the switch. The black wire left over is the black wire going to the light itself. If none of this works then it is obvious the pilot light in the switch is burnt out.

Fan speed control on 2 way circuit


1) Guessing you have 3-way switch where 2 different switches control same Load (light, fan, motor). Unknown wiring, and unknown if fan and light are wired separately.

2) Google search for 3-way fan switch shows Leviton IPF05 with simple straight-forward wiring. Link below has instruction manual, and Live chat button located to right of LEVITON
http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ProductDetail.jsp?partnumber=IPF05-1LX&section=47082&minisite=10251

3) It appears that the Leviton device must replace Line side switch.

4) Uncertain if this device also controls fan since the wiring is so simple.

Locator Light not working on leviton 6633-pl


6633-pl is single-pole and 3-way dimmer made for max 600 watt incandescent or halogen load. This dimmer does not work for CFL or inductive loads such as motor.

I have no idea what a 'locator light' is?? Do you mean the LED indicator that shows when power is connected?

Troubleshoot section of manual does not show any solution for LED malfunction.

We have Leviton push button slide dimmers w/the locate lights for power outlets and lights throughout our house. A couple of months ago one stopped working...you push the button to turn it on and it...


Wiring is not best suspect.
If all the Leviton devices were installed same time, they may be failing at same time due to lifespan.
For example, ordinary on-off switch is a mechanical device with mechanical parts, and mechanical switches last many years longer than wiring devices that have electronic parts.
Electronic devices usually have standard 1 year limited warranty.

What model Leviton GFCL should I use? My wire is a 600 volt 12/2 with ground. Said wire feeds other GFCL outlets.


Any off-the-shelf GFCI sold today with work on 12-2 wire:
By code, 12-2 wire should be connected to 20 amp circuit breaker, but typically most switches and outlets wired to that circuit are rated 15 amp. Amp rating is printed on electrical devices.
Leviton 15 amp 7599-W:

I replaced my old 3way toggle switches with the LEviton 5613 3way lighted rocker switches. Wired exactly the way the older toggle switches were wired. Switches work fine just like the older ones but one...


http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?item=4044§ion=10103&minisite=10025
The Leviton page for Leviton 5613 does not have a troubleshoot.
Manual shows simple wiring diagram.
3-way switches will not operate lights if switches are wired incorrectly.
Check your ground wire is connected.
Leviton 5613 series is illuminated.
Check that both switches have 5613 number.
Swap switches and see if problem is inside switch.

How does levition 6696 switch work?


The Leviton 6696 Anywhere RF(Radio Frequency) lighting control allows you to add an additional (wireless) switch to an existing switched light(s) without having to hard wire it. For example, let's say that you have a bedroom with a switched overhead light. The Leviton 6696 RF receiver would be installed in place of the existing light switch. It will still function and is wired the same as an ordinary switch. The Leviton 6696 Anywhere RF transmitter (after installing the batteries) can then be used anywhere within 50 feet of the receiver (that replaced the existing light switch) to also control the light. You don't have to mount the transmitter if you don't want too. It can be on the night stand, (or carry it with you if you want) so you can turn the light ON and OFF from the bed or wherever.

I am trying to replace a two wire light switch(both white) with a leviton photoelectric 3 wire motion activated light control(red, black and green). I am trying to determine which wire goes to which?


one of the white wires has power on it constantly....that wire connects to the black wire of the leviton.......the other white wire which has no power to it is going to whatever needs power so that wire connects to the red wire of the leviton....the green wire connects to the metal box where your mounting the leviton.

I have a black and white wire to hook to. leviton has black, blue and white. green also but thats a ground. what do i do with the blue wire? this is a single switch to a gfci then to outside lighting....


The blue wire is the switched hot wire coming from the leviton.
So:
black hot/source to black leviton -- blue leviton to black for light fixture or black "line" on GFI -- all whites connected together.

Charlie

P.S. If the GFI is only powering a light fixture, it is not needed.
