Question about Maestro Fan/light Dimmer Ma-lfqhw-wh Fan-light Dimmer
I have 2 Maestro Fan/light Dimmer Ma-lfqhw-wh Fan-light Dimmers on 2 seperate circuits in my house. 1. in the living room. 1 in the dining room. each are on seperate circuit breakers and were installed on the same date. Today neither are working.. the LED for the fan porton is on the lowest setting and is solid. The LED for the lighting control is "cycling" up and down.. both controlers are doing the same thing... Any suggestions?
Someone used the pull chain on both units. Whenever you install a remote or wall-mounted dimmer, it's always best to cut the chains short (after setting the fan to high) to prevent someone who doesn't know any better from using them.

I cannot find a specific troubleshoot manual for Lutron dimmers
So I suggest 4 things:
1) Feel the dimmer switch for heat >>> if it is getting hot (not warm), then that dimmer is dangerous, so remove dimmer immediately, add up your total bulb wattage to make sure you're below the 600 or 1000 watt capacity of you model dimmer
2) Look at the list of manuals shown at link, and make sure your dimmer matches the type of bulb you are using. Your dimmer model number and wattage should be printed on side or back of dimmer.
3) These dimmers use electronics to control the lights. Electronics go bad. The higher the wattage controlled by your dimmer, the more heat, and the shorter the dimmer life.
4) Short in the wires. Replace your dimmer with one from Home Depot and see if the condition persists. If it does, then a short is probably somewhere in that circuit. Troubleshooting a short is another long answer that needs more wiring detail ... please repost if you have a short.
