SOURCE: Short in light fixture and Lutron switch no longer

If the dimmer switch worked for a while after replacing the fixture, it could be that the new fixture has a higher wattage and overloaded the dimmer switch "burning it out".

Dimmer switches are notorious for not living up to their rated wattage, and most will eventually "go bad" even if they are not overloaded.

SOURCE: I am trying to install two Lutron dimmers in the

My first thought is that if you were using these devices to replace existing light switches, the MA-S8AM has an additional electrical connection that wasn't necessary with a light switch or the MA-600. The MA-S8AM has an addtional screw on it (I think its silver in color) that connects to the neutral wire in the circuit. Hopefully you have a bunch of white wires all wire-nutted together in the back of the box - pull a connection from there and attach.

If that's not the issue, then I would call Lutron's tech support. They're available 24/7, so you may as well. They're at 1-800-523-9466.

Require schematicwiring ofma400 and high power 2 lutron dimmer


You can access Lutron's Wiring Library here:

I couldn't find an MA-400 or High Power 2 dimmer, so you might want to double check the model numbers and look for a match in the link above.

How do I wire up a Maestro Lutron MAW-603-RH dimmer in a 4-way situation?


If you bought the 3-way package, there should've been two products included: the MA-600- and the MA-R. First of all, if this is a four way circuit, that means you currently have at least three switch locations. The package you bought takes cares of two of those locations, but to get the third, you need another MA-R. If there are more locations than that, each additional location requires an MA-R.

It doesn't matter which product (the MA-600 or the MA-R) you put at each location. They all wire the same.

At the 3-way locations (ends of the lighting circuit), install the dimmers just like you would a standard 3-way switch. The only thing I caution you, make sure that the blue screw on the dimmer is connected to one of the traveller wires going to the next switch box. Also note what color wire its attached to - because when you go to that next switch box, the blue screw of that dimmer needs to tie to that same wire. At the 4-way switch box, the most important thing to remember is this.... make sure all the blue screws are connected together (which is why its important to know WHICH wire is connected to the 3-way switches).

As long as you have enough product and you tie the blue screws together, it should work.

Wired up dimmer light output is not the same as when i hook it up to a regular switch


1) Overview of product indicates it dims by electronics (they say saves 15% electricity)
The electronics might be bad
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/MaestroDimmerSwitch/Pages/Overview.aspx

2) Load types
Different dimmers are made to work with different types of lighting
Depending on your model number, the type of load may be a factor
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/MaestroDimmerSwitch/Pages/Models.aspx

3) Total load
A regular 15 amp light switch carries 1440 watts
If you have the 600 Watt dimmer, load wattage should not exceed 600W >>> add up total bulb wattage

4) Lutron seems to have about 60 different manuals
A quick look at the wiring seems straightforward 1-1 wiring replacement with ordinary switch
Did you connect ground wire to green screw on dimmer?

5) If the dimmer and load requirements match with the dimmer you own, I think the problem might be a short .... exactly where the short is located is solvable by testing the lights and timer and surrounding circuits with a multi-tester >>> the testing would start at the dimmer.

6) All considered, you could replace the dimmer with another one from Home Depot and see if same problem persists.

I am trying to install two Lutron dimmers in the same box. The dimmers are models MA-S8AM-WH and MA-600WH. I can get get the MA-600-WH to work but not the MA-S8AM-WH. Anyone have any hints.


My first thought is that if you were using these devices to replace existing light switches, the MA-S8AM has an additional electrical connection that wasn't necessary with a light switch or the MA-600. The MA-S8AM has an addtional screw on it (I think its silver in color) that connects to the neutral wire in the circuit.

I purchased a replacement MA 600 3 way dimmer. The old ones had wires, this one screws. Can you tell me how they map?


http://lutron.com/CMS400/page.aspx?id=16977

The black screw is the common (either power or switch leg depending on which side of the 3-way you are working with), the brass screw is one traveler and the blue screw is a low voltage communication lead (second traveler). I have attached a link to Lutron's wiring diagram pages, just select your dimmer.
