Question about Electrical Supplies
Sounds to me like a bad dimmer switch. But here's another question, what kind of lightbulb is in it? If it's one of the common florescent screw in kinds, the dinner will not work. It'll only work if the florescent bulb itself is dimmable. If it's a regular bulb, and moving the switch does nothing, I'm thinking it's a faulty switch. They can come out of the box like that sometimes.

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.

The remote is a Hampton Bay remote that should dim the light and fan on and off. I replaced the battery and do not have a red light when I press the button. Light and fan does not turn off with remote.

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!

SOURCE: Dimmer doesn't turn off!
There is one more thing that you can try, turn the power off from the breaker and wait about 20 seconds, then turn back on. If that doesn't fix it you are probably right about the dimmer being bum. It is very rare that Lutron devices are defective. You can contact them directly and see if you can get it replaced since you no longer have the receipt. You may have to send it to them before they will send you a replacement but it beats spending another $50
