I have an old easyset E-600VA dimmer connected on single pole to a ceiling light. I want to replace that with a new Leviton toggle switch with dimming slide.

red never connects to black as that is power to neutral if wired correctly
get in a qualified electrician to check the wiring and help you install the unit

Installed a dimmer switch to a light. Put power back on and the light came on. Wouldn't dim however and when I turned it off it would not come back on. fuse is OK

Is the dimmer rating higher than the load? Are you trying to dim fluorescent lamps? A flourescent requires special dimmer switch.

If you over loaded or mis-wired a transistor or wire wound dimmer, you may have damaged it.

Is this a three way light circuit?

Leviton TrueTouch 600W dimmer 6606-ILM is stuck on high and won't allow dim down. Is the dimmer toast?

Unfortunately with the new electronics, there is not much to do when they go bad. Sometimes they go out and nothing works, sometimes just no dimming. I have had it where I got careless installing one live, and hit the hot to the frame. Worked fine as a switch, but no dimming! Best to replace it.

I am having the same trouble in my church with two nsi/leviton dimmers. Wide horizontal bar created on video screen during dimming. No bar at 100% or off, just anywhere in between.

Leviton slide dimmer switch w/locator light light comes on but doesnt dim

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.
