Trip the breaker and verify that the fan/light will not operate. If tripping the breaker kills the circuit and flipping the wall switch would not, the switch is probably bypassed. Place the wall switch to "off" with the breaker tripped to the "off" position as well. Gain access to your wiring connections at the fan. Look for a single (black) wire that is not connected. This should be your hot return from the wall switch Make your fan/light connections to this wire. (Are you sure that the ground wire that you connected is a ground? If it is, it should be bare copper with no insulation). Your white (neutral) connection to the three white wires should be fine. If you don't find a single wire in the ceiling box, call on an electrician. Regards --WoobieDog--

The dimmer normally controls a light which is 100 watts or so. The dimmer is rated for only so much load.It is only a fire hazard if the dimmer is overloaded by a fan and light that draws alot of current. Some fans have a light and 2 pull chains,one for fan speed and another for the light itself.There is usually only one power source for the fan.If it is a split design,then the light can be run off the dimmer,and the fan off of the switch. If you want to vary the fan speed with the dimmer ,make sure it is rated for at least the load rating.

SOURCE: Dual Dimmer / lights go off when fan not on high.

I'm not sure of the exact wire arrangement, but it appears as though a fan and light wire are mixed up, as thought the lights are feeding off the fan wire. Its possible that in the switch box or even in the fan box the output of your fan is tied to the lights so that when the fan is at it's highest output (maximum current), yours lights work properly and not at any other setting. Check wiring for errors.

SOURCE: I need a pull chain DIMMER switch for my fan

Bought three fans for the bedrooms, all hunters with pull chain dimmers. Less than one year and two of the three dimmers are shot. Can't find a replacement so I bypassed it. Remove light assembly and unplug 9pin connector. Remove black vented dimmer assembly by removing wire nuts and disconnecting the 2wire connector(black and white wires). Cut the 2wire connector off and save it in case you find a part someday. Wire nut black to black(hot) and white to white(neutral). You will disable the pull chain by wire nutting those two wires together.

If you have a remote then you can't use the dimmer switch on the wall. Put in an on/off switch.

WHEN DIMMING IN MINIMUM POSITION THE LIGHTS START BLINKING


Which dimmer do you have. So I can look up the manual.
Are you using a fan dimmer, or light dimmer?
Does the dimmer feel warm to touch? or hot?
What does the dimmer control? Incandescent? Fluorescent?
How many total watts are being dimmed?
Is this a new dimmer or old dimmer that started having a problem?
Add a comment with as much detail as possible for best available answer.

I AM REPLACING A LUTRON DIMMER SWITCH AND HAVE i THINK MADE ALL THE RIGHT CI=CONNECTIONS - COULD A FAULTY GROUNDING BE THE PROBLEM?


As a general rule, grounding will not affect operation of dimmer.
Type of dimmer, type of switch being replaced, type of load, and how you connect wires will affect dimmer.

Here is Lutron dimmer switch page
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/Pages/DimmersSwitches.aspx

What is the load? Are you wiring dimmer to a ballast? Or fan? Or incandescent lights? Or florescent lights?
Are you replacing a 2-way or 3-way switch?
What color are your dimmer wires?
How many wires were connected to switch?
Can you re-install the switch, and know where each wire went?
Did you replace a light with a fan, and then want the dimmer to slow the fan? Not every dimmer will work with a fan, or florescent lights.
Dimmers cannot dim LED lights.

If I know what type switch you are replacing, and the type of load you want to control, and the specific dimmer you have, I can answer the question.

In general practice, you can only install ONE 3-way dimmer switch to control the lights. If you use two regular 3-way dimmer switches, the circuit won't work.

However, newer technology allows for double 3-way dimming from different locations. See this article about how to do this:

My new fan with light fixture is hooked up but it only works through the pull strings not from my wall dimmer. Can someone please tell me why and what do I need to do to have it work from the wall dimmer....


It depends if the fan and lights are ran for separate control. If only one power line is ran from the fan to the switch location than you are out of luck. You should install a switch instead of a dimmer because a fan is not designed to work with a dimmer. A dimmer works by rapidly turning the power on and off faster than our eyes can detect creating a dimming effect for lights. This is not good for your fan. The strength of the fan speed will be limited by the dimming/power output of the light dimmer.

Light flickers when dimmer switch isn't ''just right''


Compact fluorescent bulbs do not work on dimmers.  You have to use standard incandescent bulbs or not dim the lights.

Dimmer controls the fan / noisy


Sounds like a wireing problem, You wired the light dimmer into the fan control. thats why the fan slows down when you dim the lights.
