SOURCE: humming inside the switch
Is it connected to a fan motor also? - most dimmers are for lights only - if there is a ceiling fan connected you may experience a humming sound from the dimmer

This is not a difficult job. First of all go out to a home depot or other hardware store and purchase one three way switch. They come in white, cream, and brown.
Back home, kill the power to the lights you are working on. Then open up the dimmer switch, the other switch doesnt need to be changed. Now, simply draw a diagram of where each wire color is now connected and remove the old dimmer. Reconnect the wires. Remember that the white wire goes on the dull color screw and the other two go on the brass screws. Turn the power back on.
If you do all this and the switch only works correctly part of the time just reverse the two wires on the bright brass screws. Please mark this answer as a fixya!

there is not way to know how the wires are run by the description.
it is possible to connct true 3-way switch, it will required additonal pair of wires to all 3 switches (meaning 3-14/3 wire).
so call 3-way switches is only two way. I have not seems a real 3-way switches.
go to the following site. they a connection diag. for the switches.

The old switch is just a single pole switch. The new one is for fan speed control. You need to use a regular single pole switch like you had. Or you can use a single pole switch on the Lutron you bought if you can figure out which wires to use. Do you have a meter?

The type of track heads you are using could be creating the problem. Are the lamps Par 20, Par 30 (screw in base) or MR-16 low voltage (push in base)? If the track head has a small (2"x4") box and uses MR-16 lamps then you need to use a dimmer specifically designed for ELECTRONIC LOW VOLTAGE. Incandescent lights (screw in base) and Electronic low voltage need a different signal to dim. Using a standard dimmer for electronic low voltage will work for a while, but then either the dimmer or the fixtures will go bad. If your lamps are incandescent or halogen you may have just had a bad dimmer. (Not common for Lutron products) but the part number you list should be good for 1000watts and should not be the issue.
Please see "Dimming Basics" under the helpful information tab for a better explanations of the two different styles of dimming. Hope this helps!
