I need to know how to wire a Levitron dimmer switch in replacement of a regular light switch.


Don't use on LED or CFL unless they are rated for dimmer switch. Didn't switch come with directions? Picture looks like it might be for a three way application.

Why does our office Polycom system go dark when no one moves?


There could be an automatic timeout when no movement is detected. The solution is to have everyone keep moving, even breaking into a lively dance from time to time.

I just installed a 1000 W 3-way toggle dimmer for a load of 12 75 W recessed lights, each holding 65W bulbs. When I turn the lights on, the metal plate around the dimmer gets very hot. Is this normal?


The watt rating is absolutely critical to the operation of the device.
The high heat is a direct result of too much amperage flowing through the dimmer.

Reduce your wattage immediately or stop using the dimmer.
You have a fire hazard.

According to the math, you have 20 - 65 Watt bulbs
Change 12 of the bulbs to 40 watt and you will drop to the 1000W max.
12 x 40 = 480W
8 x 65 = 520W
Total = 1000

However I am worried about this circuit.
A typical 15 amp switch (not a dimmer, but the switch) is maxxed-out at 1440 Watts.
So if you had 20 100 watt bulbs for 2000 Watts, it would heat up the 15 amp switch
It seems very odd that an electrician would put 20 lights on one circuit without having a 20 amp switch and 12 gauge wire.
Look at the markings on the switch you replaced and look for amps or watts.
And then look at the color of the wire cable inside your box ... 12 gauge wire is yellow and the lighter-weight 14 gauge wire is white.
If you have a white wire going to all those lights, then you are going to burn down the house unless the total wattage is reduced.
Volts X Amps = Watts.

I think your circuit needs a review to make sure it has the correct wire.

This being said, Lutron makes 1800 Watt dimmers.
You can web search: 1800Watt single pole dimmer
If you have yellow-colored 12 gauge wire, it can carry up to 1920 Watts

I bought a Lutron Dimmer Switch and there is a light on in the background when I turn the switch off. It is suppose to be that way. It seems to be hotter when the switch is off instead of hotter when the...


First off, if your dimmer is getting hot, then there is something wrong. This is dangerous. Do not leave that dimmer in the wall. Remove it.

1) A typical wall switch controls up to 1400 Watts. Look at the watt rating of your dimmer. A 600 watt dimmer will control up to 600 watts. If you have 600 watts on your dimmer, expect a shortened lifespan for that device. If you have more than 600 Watts, expect overheating and possible fire.

2) Lutron makes 1000 Watt dimmers
http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro%C2%AE+dimmer+%26+switch

3) Type of bulb: Review the specs shown on link above because they show wattage, and they also show which light the dimmer is made to control

4) If your lights are on a 3-way switch, then dimmer has 3 screws and connects to 3 wires. If your wiring is incorrect, it might give symptoms shown above.
If your switch had 2 wires and you put those wires on a dimmer with 3 screws, it might be wired incorrectly.
Check wiring. Re-post a question if your are confused about details.

5) There might be a short in the circuit ... or in the dimmer ... replace dimmer with another one from Home Depot and see if symptoms persist. Disconnect ground wire as a test only and see if symptoms disappear ... if so then there is a short somewhere in the circuit
Don't burn the house down.

Wired up dimmer light output is not the same as when i hook it up to a regular switch


1) Overview of product indicates it dims by electronics (they say saves 15% electricity)
The electronics might be bad
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/MaestroDimmerSwitch/Pages/Overview.aspx

2) Load types
Different dimmers are made to work with different types of lighting
Depending on your model number, the type of load may be a factor
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/MaestroDimmerSwitch/Pages/Models.aspx

3) Total load
A regular 15 amp light switch carries 1440 watts
If you have the 600 Watt dimmer, load wattage should not exceed 600W >>> add up total bulb wattage

4) Lutron seems to have about 60 different manuals
A quick look at the wiring seems straightforward 1-1 wiring replacement with ordinary switch
Did you connect ground wire to green screw on dimmer?

5) If the dimmer and load requirements match with the dimmer you own, I think the problem might be a short .... exactly where the short is located is solvable by testing the lights and timer and surrounding circuits with a multi-tester >>> the testing would start at the dimmer.

6) All considered, you could replace the dimmer with another one from Home Depot and see if same problem persists.

Thought the bulb was bad, replaced and still no light.


where did you get the lamp from? if you got it from a reputable dealer, then i'd say the ballast is bad and needs replacing. if you got it from "bob's bulbs", then it may be the lamp. but the only way to test it is to put it in a known good projector.

My c65 prints photo all dimmer


Set up a picture with basic squares of colour using a graphics program such as Powerpoint. Print this picture. Does the printed picture look like the picture on the screen. If not, uninstall the printer, reboot, and re-install it. Try again - still no good? You need to get a technician to look at your printer.

If this basic colour check works OK, take a photograph of the printed picture and load it into the computer. Compare it with the original on the screen. The same? No - it's a camera problem - Yes? - OK now print the camera version. Any sign of this dimming? Yes - it's a printer problem - get a technician, as before. No? - I'm baffled why you think you have a problem?

Mits 46805 - Replaced IC's now picture is dim!


Good Day, Nickb2b;

The IC's you installed will not cause a dark/dim picture......but I would like you to check two things:

1. Make sure you put all cables that you may have unplugged into their proper positions, the cables are marked with numbers, ensure all cables are properly seated,

2. Look for fluid on the PCB's.

Good Luck, big IRISH.

use the advanced options page and reset the factor blue and red convergence defaults then do re apply the auto color defaults color at first it seemed very red (which is good because red was the missing factor in the green picture) but after reseting all the color and tints to the normal ranges I then reset the color auto correct again and all seems fine.
