Hello, I never had any issues with my central air unit before, but now all of sudden when I turn on my central air conditioner & heater, it causes my chandelier to shake violently. I feel as if it


If the air handler is above the chandelier you need to inspect the fan and motor. Could be a bad bearing or imbalance while spinning. There might be an oil port or two on the fan and motor. Try oiling the bearings.

The light in the kitchen doesn't come on. If you hold it sideways, it comes on. The fireplace doesn't come on and there is no crackling sound. Everything else works.


only problem I shared with you is the chandelier... the door, upon opening, turns the chandelier on... you'll see the switch in the hinge area of the door

Lutron Dimmer manuals
http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro%C2%AE+dimmer+%26+switch

Lutron manuals show a couple things that might be affecting you lights.
1) Wattage: If you have wrong wattage dimmer
2) Type of light bulb: Dimmers work on different types of bulbs
3) Wiring: You say you got 3 wires going to the chandelier? Why you got 3 wires? Is this a 3 way switch? Are the chandelier bulbs wired separately so you can control groups of bulbs with different switches?
Does the dimmer have 3 screws? A dark-colored screw and 2 brass screws? If so, then that sounds like a 3-way dimmer. A 3-way, is where more than one switch controls the same light.

Does the dimmer have 2 screws? Then that dimmer controls a single circuit. Your black Hot wire from breaker box connects to one screw and the black wire to Load connects to other screw.
A quick glance at Lutron wiring manual shows that Hot and Load wires connect to either screw.
The question is your 3-wires from the chandelier ... does the black Hot wire from breaker arrive in the ceiling box first? Or does it arrive in the wall box first? If your Hot arrives in ceiling box, then the Hot must come down to the switch box and connect to a screw on the dimmer >>> a second wire connects to other screw on dimmer and travels up to the ceiling box where it connects to black wire on chandelier. The white wire on chandelier connects to white Neutral.
4) Dimmer might be bad

My girlfriend has a leviton illumatech IP106 that keeps "not working". after a number of months. It is operarting a standard dining room 6 light chandelier. A couple of her friends have replaced this in...


As a general rule for timers and dimmers:

The Black dimmer wire connects to black hot wire coming from breaker (122V line)
The red dimmer wire connects to Load (wire going to chandelier)

The wall red wire that is capped could be a couple different things. a) It could go to a second switch that was used to control the chandelier. b) it could be another wire that goes to same ceiling box as chandelier to be used to control a fan, except you don't have a fan. In the second case, if you install a fan with a light, you could control fan and light separately.

The green is a ground wire that connects to bare copper wire in box. The bare copper connect back to main breaker box on the Neutral busbar.
White wires that are twisted together inside your light switch box also connect back to to main breaker box on the Neutral busbar.
The ground wire and neutral are a redundant safety system to protect you from electrical devices and appliances that have 'shorted'
The black hot wire connects back to the circuit breaker.

For example, each circuit breaker controls one area of household lighting. The black white and copper wires leave breaker box in a single romex cable. The romex travels to a junction box in the area where the lights are located. The junction box is usually a switch box or a ceiling box. From the junction box, the romex travels to each other switch, light and receptacle box in the area. So each box has 1 hot and 1 neutral and 1 ground that is connected in a line that leads back to breaker box.

Here's a couple pages that make home wiring easier to understand:

Light switch


If the previous light worked ok and you didn't touch the wall switch, you must have a faulty connection at the chandelier end, check the connections again. Is there a seperate switch on the chandelier?

New bulbs in chandelier don't work


A light bulb is not a terribly complicated thing. I think you're saying that the bulbs are OK, but they do not seem to function in some of the chandelier sockets. Is that correct?

Assuming the bulbs are not burned out, the only reason this would occur is if they are not making good electrical contact with the socket. The bulb makes contact in two places, on is the threaded base and the other is the metal contact on the base of the bulb. My guess would be they are not threading in quite right and then you're not able to screw them all the way in so the base makes electrical contact.

Before you rate this solution I hope you'll take into account that I'm not paid to do this, I'm just trying to help. I have no idea what you're reaction will be, but I'm really getting tired of getting poor ratings for trying to help...especially when I seem to be the only one who responds on a question.
