Question about Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

We don't like that the Lutron Diva dimmers only come with a "locator light" which means the dimmer is backlit when it is off. Can we just simply remove the small neon bulb in the dimmer? It seems like we could, but I called Lutron and they said that it would violate the warranty. If we are willing to forego the warranty, can we remove the backlight bulb without affecting the performance of the dimmer? Thanks for your advice on this.

The dimmer's performance would not be affected by removing the neon lamp. However, it will be important to snip the leads so they don't cause a short in the circuit board.

You could just use some high-temperature black paint and coat the neon lamp.

What Dimmer can I use That looks like an OS600 but is for a GU24 Dimmable CFL


Depending on your wiring, as to single pole (one switch location) or 3 way (two switch locations) you can use most dimmers. Leviton and Lutron have similar dimmers, and some specifically for cfl's.
Leviton has Sureslide, Illumitech, True Touch
Lutron has Diva, Skylark, and Lumea

Make sure your cfl is dimmable.

I would call their tech support center for clarification, because what you descirbe doesn't immediately make sense. The only light that a Diva has should be a yellow glow through the back of the plastic. If you're talking about a green light, then maybe you mean a Maestro, but there's no yellow light on a Maestro... it's making me think you may have a different manufacturer.

Regardless, call tech support to figure it out. They're at 1-800-523-9466 and available 24/7.

Night light in lutron wall switch flashing can it be fixed and how


Unfortunately, no. Its a neon bulb that gets soldered into the product, so its not something that can be tweaked or replaced. My suggestion would be to call their tech support number 1-800-523-9466, and see if you can get them to replace the whole dimmer.

Lutron skylark s-10p 1000w dimmer. why is one


This video from the Lutron site shows the Diva switch but it is the video for the Skylark single pole switch also. It makes no mention of one wire being a larger gauge and does not differentiate which wire connects to line power and which to load. I do not think the wire gauge makes any difference.
