I was reading one of the Lutron Maestro accessory dimmer manuals yesterday, and it showed how that little light was also a fuse that you could remove to turn off power. I didn't read exactly why it has that fuse.

You might check your manual to see if that is the same feature on your accessory dimmer.

My led lights start to strobe when I turn on exterior light that is fed from the same line circuit. Solution?


There are two things coming into play here; the lamps and the dimmer(s).

First; LED and CFL type lamps that are to be used on a dimmer switch - must be identified for that use. Looks for the word dimmable on the packaging or bulb itself. These lamps are generally a little more expensive than their non-dimmable counterparts. If it does not indicate it is dimmable, then it isn't - and should not be installed on a circuit controlled by a dimmer switch.

Second; a dimmer switch that will be used to control LED and CFL bulbs (that are identified for use with a dimmer) must also be identified for use with dimmable LED and CFL bulbs. Again, these dimmer switches will be identified for this use and will cost more than those that work with standard filament type bulbs.

Lutron has dimmers for your circuit called a "C•L™ Dimmer" and supports Incandescent / Halogen, Dimmable Compact Fluorescent (CFL) and Dimmable Light Emitting Diodes (LED) type lamps. have a look here:
Lutron Maestro Dimmer and Switch Models

Also, be wary of the total load (wattage) of the lamps being controlled. If you have multiple dimmers in the same box, derating of the switch's wattage capacity (due to increased heat) will be required.

I bought a MAW-603 with an accessory dimmer to be placed in a 4 way circuit. I followed the instruction on how to connect the accessory dimmer in the 4 way switch location but doesn't work. When I leave...


You are saying that you have a "4-way circuit". That means that you originally had two 3-way switches and at least one 4-way switch. ALL existing mechanical switches _must_ to be replaced with electronic dimmers in order for things to work correctly. You must have only _one_ master dimmer (MA-600) located wherever you desire. All of the other switch locations must be companion dimmers (MA-R)., NOT mechanical switches.

The MAW-603-RH comes with a master dimmer and one companion dimmer, so I suspect that you need to install one more companion dimmer.

My master dimer and companion dimer led lights went out and I can't turn the light fixture off. The light stays on but the switch does nothing. Do both switches need to be replaced or just one and how do I...


If you can't turn them off, then chances are that the dimming element within the master dimmer shorted. Some dimmers can get triggered by a hellacious bulb blow-out where a surge of current will ruin the semiconductors in the dimmer and, basically, short it out. If that's the case, I can't guarantee that nothing was broken in the companion, but zero dimming capability usually means the master dimmer.

Also, because its shorted, there's not voltage left around for the dimmer's to use to power up themselves - that's probably why the LEDs on neither device are turned on anymore. Replacing the dimmer should fix that.

I'm using a Cooper Master Dimmer with a Cooper toggle type 3 way switch circuit controlling one incandescent light fixture. My home is 30 years old and I've found many deviations from acceptable wiring...


The problem is most likely not the dimmer or the wiring, but rather the existing 3-way switch.

First of all, the Aspire smart dimmer does not work in conjunction with traditional, 3-way, on/off toggle switches. When the 3-way switch is in one-position, it lets the dimmer work, but in the other position, it cuts power to the entire lighting circuit - and the smart dimmer is NOT going to be able to override that. You instead need to get the corresponding remote dimmer (sometimes called a slave, or a companion dimmer), and use that to replace the standard 3-way switch.

That may also solve your "mystery turn-on" issue. Even though those dimmers can use the existing 3-way switch wiring, you have to REALLY pay attention to the instruction sheets to see how the master and the slave wire up to each individual electrical box. I vaguely remember that even if you were to use the product in a single-pole application, those two wires that, I assume, you attached to the traveller wires in the house needed to be shorted together in order to work - and since you have them running into a 3-way switch, the errors that you're seeing are bound to happen.

Long story short, get the slave dimmer, install it according to the instructions, and all these problems should go away.

I only need a single pole dimmer switch. Which product do i buy. I bought the smart dimmer system remote, but it doesn't seem to be right.

The photo shows the master 'smart' dimmer, but you purchased the remote 'smart' dimmer that is slave to the master dimmer.

So you are correct, that is not the correct dimmer for a single-pole application.
Cooper brand Aspire dimmers are available in 'Smart' dimmer and just plain old dimmer.

Smarthome has a plain old aspire dimmer

Google products also shows the Lutro Maestro dimmer
http://www.google.com/products/catalog?q=maestro+dimmer
Lowes and Home Depot have ordinary dimmers also.

Both the dimmer linked to above will work for your single pole application. Keep in mind, they also work for 3-way applications so there will be an extra wire.
Since you know the phrase 'single pole' I suspect the wiring for you will be a cinch.

If you need assistance with the new dimmer, add a comment and I will answer.

Can not connect new dimmer.


I think you are removing a 3-way dimmer. Is there another on-off switch that also turns the dimmed light on and off? You will need to replace it with another 3-way dimmer. Here is a link to an excellent how-to write-up.

Controller (s) not working


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.
