Question about Maestro Lutron MAW-603-RH 3-way 600 Watt Preset Package
I have a Lutron Maestro MAW-603 dimmer and companion that I removed from a 3 way location. Can I reuse the dimmer portion in a 2 way, single location situation?
You should be able to by hooking up the black wire on the dimmer to the hot wire(that comes from the electrical panel) in the wall box and the red wire from dimmer to the switch leg(the wire that goes to light fixture). if the dimmer has a white wire(nuetral wire) you will need to hook that up to the white wires in the wall box....CAUTION!!! when removing the old 1 pole switch, there should only be 2 wires and possibly a green or bare copper ground wire attached to it. if either of the 2 wires(not the ground) are white, IT IS MISLABLED OR MISCOLORED. DO NOT hook the dimmers white wire to it cuz it will fry the dimmer. If this is the case, then most likley you do not have a nuetral in the wall box but look anyway for a couple of white wires tied together with a wire nut and stuffed in the back of the box. if you find those than most likely thats your neutral(check with a wiggy or meter to be sure) and thats where the dimmers white wire goes. hook up the dimmers green wire to a green or bare copper wire in the wall box and then put a wire nut on the dimmers red w/white stripe wire.

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.
