    any type of surge weather it be rapid switching, small voltage spikes, will cause it to go bad, a blown lamp @ any paticular time can and will junk your switch also. Not to argue but i have seen it before.

WAIT! Are you SURE the 98480-02 is burnt? This is part of the FAN circuits and NOT your lights?

But wait again! Here is ANOTHER Link complaining about LIGHTS and this FAN module (who knew!):

IF it is burnt here is a replacement for under $9

It's proper name is: "Hunter Fan model 98480X control switch".

Kendal fan/light remote UC7208T doesn't dim


If you have CFL bulbs they won't dim. There should be a switch to change remote from CFL to incandesant light inside the transmitter. You'll have to match settings with settings in receiver.

2006 VTX 1300c neutral light won't come on when in neutral and won't start@


Hi, Tommy and the usual suspects are:
1. Neutral light bulb burnt out.
2. Faulty neutral switch.
3. A loose bulb in the socket.
4. Faulty wiring from the neutral switch to the light.
5. If the neutral light stays on while the bike is in gear the wire from the light to the neutral switch is grounded.

I returned from vacation last night and noticed all four of my coach lights were off. I thought...the timer needs to be reprogrammed due to a power outage while I was away. The red indicator light was...


1) You performed correct troubleshoot steps down the line.
Last thing would be to install defect timer on another light circuit in house, and see if problem is the timer or wire going to coach lights.

2) EJ351C has 1 year limited warranty.
Buy new EJ351c and install single pole light switch until timer replacement is available.
Timer has easy 2-wire installation. Turn off power. Connect new timer just like old one was connected. Either timer black wire connects to either wire in switch box.

Dimmer turns on/off 3 spotlights but they wont dim


Questions to answer so I can answer/resolve your problem:

1) Is this a rotary style dimmer?
2) Is it a toggle or slider type?
3) Is this on a 3-way circuit (that has 2 or more switches that can turn the lights on or off)
4) Is this on a single switch circuit?
5) Is this a brand new dimmer switch?
6) Is this an old dimmer switch?
7) Are the light bulbs in the spots regular incandesant or halogen bulbs?
8) Are the light bulbs in the spots CFL (compact flouresent lamps)?

With this information, I can tell you what the problem is:

If you answer "YES" to #1, and or #6 then the dimmer is faulty and should be replaced.

If you answer "YES" to #8, then you have the wrong dimmer for the bulb type, as CFL's require a specific dimmer type in order to dim them.

Please provide some more info and maybe we can help you figure out what's wrong.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

New Leviton 'lighted, decorative' switch flickers when off


You cannot use standard electronic dimmer switches with CFL bulbs, only incandesant bulbs! That is why you are getting the flickering.

With CFL's bulbs installed in a light fixture that has a non-flouresant rated dimmer switch on that circuit, you will cause the standard dimmer to fail.

You have to look at the dimmer package (sometimes printed on the back of the dimmer itself too) to see if it can be used with CFL bulbs,as many are not rated for use with anything other than standard incandesant bulbs.


Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!
