Wiring is not best suspect.
If all the Leviton devices were installed same time, they may be failing at same time due to lifespan.
For example, ordinary on-off switch is a mechanical device with mechanical parts, and mechanical switches last many years longer than wiring devices that have electronic parts.
Electronic devices usually have standard 1 year limited warranty.

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.

The dimmer switch will turn on and off but wont dim the lights on a chandelier. model 6681-w. tried 2 different ones with the same results.


The Leviton 6681 is a push-button rotary-type incandescent dimmer with 600Watt capacity

If you have incandescent bulbs, the dimmer should work.
If the dimmer has different color wires, try reversing the wires.
If the dimmer replaced a 3-way switch, then this is not the right dimmer.
If you have compact florescent bulbs, you need a dimmer that also dims florescent.

Link shows the Leviton 6673 incandescent and florescent dimmer

But you also need dimmable compact florescent bulbs.

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.
