SOURCE: leviton slide dimmer switch w/locator light light comes on but doesnt dim

What sort of light is it , dimmer switches normally only work on Incandescent type lights not flourescent type.

Otherwise it sounds as if the dimmer function is faulty.

SOURCE: Connecting Leviton Decora light switch.

At the switch you have a feed wire coming in this brings in power which originates in the electric panel. You also have a feed or feeds goings out to other lts or switches, this you seem to have on the switch. instead of the closet switch loop.undo all the wires. find the only hot this is the one wire you can touch to the others and make different lts come on i reccomend getting a electric tester to do this. FInd the wire that goes to the closet lt. Once your sure put it to the side. wirenut all other wires together with the hot wire. this makes all other switches independantly hot. connect the hot to the switch and the closet lt to switch. I HOPE THIS MAKES SOME SENSE TO YOU . let me know if i can help

SOURCE: Installing a Leviton 5225 switch with outlet.

A switch is wired using the hot wires only, the black wire. It is simply a break in the line so that when the switch is off no power flows and when the switch is on the power does flow.

You are correct that the middle outlet would have two black wires and two white wires.

If you want to tap into that middle outlet and run power up the wall I suggest you look into some wiremold products. Go to their website, or any home depot and check it out. Get back if you think I can help you further. I am an electrician.

Here is a link that may help you.

SOURCE: new Leviton 'lighted, decorative' switch flickers when off

Personally, I've had no practical problem using the standard lighted switches with CFL bulbs but I am willing to put up with the flicker as the switches are in an unimportant area. The reason why they flicker is each CFL bulb has an electronic circuit in the ceramic base so you don't have to install a balast circuit in every lamp and fixture in your home. This is also why they cost more. You are basically throwing away a complete flouresent light fixture when you change these bulbs. Anyway, the reason the switches flicker is that there is a capasitor in the circuit that keeps charging and discharging through the little neon bulb in the switch. I had a CFL bug light on my back porch and when I was outside looking at the stars at night, I kept seeing something out of the corner of my eye. I stared at the bug light for a while and it was flashing every few minutes as the high voltage circuit in the bulb would charge to it's ignition threshold then fire the bulb and start the cycle all over again.
Good luck.
Jeff

Does not completely turn off


If switch is electric, it might not be rated for type of bulb.
Check rating label for switch... try incandescent bulb.
Otherwise there might be short circuit causing bleed-over of power going to light bulb.

I have a levitron 6696-I remoter switch installed in my living room. This switch feels very hot to the touch. Is this normal or is something wrong?


Remove a hot wiring device immediately.

This is not safe.

I just found your post, and am going to send the response now without discussing the dimmer.

How does levition 6696 switch work?


The Leviton 6696 Anywhere RF(Radio Frequency) lighting control allows you to add an additional (wireless) switch to an existing switched light(s) without having to hard wire it. For example, let's say that you have a bedroom with a switched overhead light. The Leviton 6696 RF receiver would be installed in place of the existing light switch. It will still function and is wired the same as an ordinary switch. The Leviton 6696 Anywhere RF transmitter (after installing the batteries) can then be used anywhere within 50 feet of the receiver (that replaced the existing light switch) to also control the light. You don't have to mount the transmitter if you don't want too. It can be on the night stand, (or carry it with you if you want) so you can turn the light ON and OFF from the bed or wherever.

I have a 2001 Accord and if I hit the unlock button and do not open any door within a certain amount of time (2-5 minutes) it automatically re-locks it. Is there a setting I can change to prevent this...


Hi there,

Hope the following procedures helps.

TRANSMITTER TEST



NOTE:

If the doors unlock or lock with the transmitter, but the LED on the transmitter does not come on, the LED is faulty; replace the transmitter.

If any door is open, you cannot lock or unlock the door with the transmitter.

If you unlocked the doors with the transmitter, but do not open any of the doors within 30 seconds, the doors relock automatically. ?

The doors do not lock or unlock with the transmitter if the ignition key is inserted in the ignition switch.





1. Press the lock or unlock button 5 or 6 times to reset the transmitter.

If the locks work, the transmitter is OK.

If the locks don't work, go to step 2.



2. Open the transmitter and check for water damage.

If you find any water damage, replace the transmitter.

If there is no water damage, go to step 3.

3. Replace the transmitter battery (A) with a new one, and try to lock and unlock the doors with the transmitter by pressing the lock or unlock button 5 or 6 times.

If the doors lock and unlock, the transmitter is OK.

If the doors don't lock and unlock, go to step 4.



NOTE: The transmitters for LX models and EX models are different and are not interchangeable.



4. Reprogram the transmitter, then try to lock and unlock the doors (see Transmitter Programming ).

If the doors lock and unlock, the transmitter is OK.

If the doors don't lock and unlock, replace the transmitter.



TRANSMITTER PROGRAMMING

Storing transmitter codes:

The codes of up to three transmitters can be read into the keyless receiver unit memory. (If a fourth code is stored, the code which was input first will be erased.)



NOTE: It is important to maintain the time limits between the steps.



1. Turn the ignition switch ON (II).

2. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

3. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

4. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

5. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

6. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

7. Within 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

8. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

9. Within 1 to 4 sec., turn the ignition switch OFF.

10. Within 4 sec., turn the ignition switch ON (II).

11. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button with the transmitter aimed at the keyless receiver unit behind the glove box.

12. Confirm you can hear the sound of the door lock actuators. Within 1 to 4 sec., push the transmitter lock or unlock button again.

13. Within 15 sec., aim the remaining transmitters at the keyless receiver unit (up to two additional ones) whose codes you want to store at the receiver, and press the transmitter lock or unlock buttons. Confirm that you can hear the sound of the door lock actuators after each transmitter code is stored.

14. Turn the ignition switch OFF, and pull out the key.

15. Confirm proper operation of the transmitters.

Cheers!

Leviton wireless switch fails to work all the time


50 feet is the maximum range for the switch, per manufacturers spec. Range is diminished somewhat for walls, doors, etc.

IIRC, there is a plug in transceiver available from Leviton, however, if the price of the booster for the main panel is included in the $100 installation, then I'd say that's a fair price. You may try to keep fresh batteries in the switch.
