I'm assuming you've connected the line (hot) on the black and the load (out to fixture) to the red? So does the light stay on or your tester is measuring voltage. Some electronic controls will test voltage on a tester. if there is no load connected

Single Pole Illuminated switch doesn't interrupt power to fixture.


there should be two wires coming from switch both black you should hook up the hot wire to one the other to the light it self. if there hooked up right then the switch would be bad if you have a volt tester this will tell if you have a hot wire or not , good luck

Leviton PR180 is a single-pole or 3-way motion activated light switch.
Resources:
http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?item=452283§ion=10892&minisite=10026

The green connects to bare ground wire.
The yellow-red is not used EXCEPT to replace 3-way switch. Cap off yellow-red wire when wiring single-pole.

Your single pole switch has two black wires.
One black wire is Hot from breaker, and the other black wire goes to Load.
Turn power on, and test each black wire to bare copper wire. Tester lights up on Hot wire.

Hot wire connects to PR180 black wire.
Load wire connects to RR180 red wire

How to wire


This should replace any existing single pole (one location) switch. You have two wires on the pir, black and blue and then the ground. The black hooks to the hot or common wire. It may be black, but it will be the hot wire. The blue wire hooks to the wire going to the light. The ground hooks to the green or bare.

Replacing old switch, existing leviton dimmer has two black wires coming out of it....can't firgure out which is which? Power, load, grounnd


Hook one of the wires that was connected to the black wire to the silver screw, one to the brass screw. Does not matter which. If there is no ground (bare or green) then you can hook one from the green screw on the switch to the box where the other grounds are connected.

I have a Leviton single pole rocker switch grnd, pilot light back and side wired #5628-2W i am trying to hook it up so light is on when switch is on i have 2 black wires 2 white wires and 1 ground wire how...


easy one first: ground wire to green screw. We have to assume the two black wires are the hot(coming from power source) and switch leg(going to light). Switch will have two brass colored screws. Looking at the switch with the off/on markings right side up. Put hot wire on upper screw and switch leg on other brass screw, With nothing hooked up, the hot wire will be the only wire with voltage on it. You can buy a non-contact voltage tester at Lowes or any place that sells electrical supplies. Now we must assume the two white wires are neutrals(one coming from power source and one going to light. The pilot light part of the switch will either have a silver colored screw or a white pigtail on it. all whites hook together. The pilot light is wired internally to the switch leg. Your switch should work properly now.

I have the unit wired and it does not wotk.I have black to black,red to red green to ground and white to white,any thoughts? Thank you


Electrician test wiring before connecting anything.
First of all, you don't mention what type of switch was replaced.

1) Leviton 6230 countdown timer is made to replace single-pole light switch only.
Single pole is where 1 switch controls the Load (light fan motor)

Your wiring sounds like 3-way switch.
3-way is where 2 switches control same Load.
For example a hallway usually has 3-way switches.

To confirm. If old switch has 1 dark screw, 2 brass screws, and 1 green screw, then that is 3-way switch. Use Leviton LTB15, LTB30, LTB60, LTB02, LTB12 countdown timer for 3-way.

2) If old switch has 2 brass screws and 1 green screw then that is single-pole switch.

3) If you are replacing single-pole switch, here are testing & wiring instructions for Leviton timer.
Remove device and separate wires for testing.
Use ordinary two wire tester.
Tape tester leads to wood sticks so hands are away from power.
Do not untwist wires that were twisted together before you started.
Turn on power.
Test each wire to bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on Hot wire. This wire will connect to timer black wire.
Now you know Hot wire.
Test Hot wire to each of the other wires, excluding bare ground wire.
Tester lights up on neutral. Timer white wire connects to Neutral wire.
If box does not contain Neutral wire, then timer white wire connects to bare ground.

Timer green wire connects to bare ground wire.
Timer red wire connects to wire going to Load.

The Leviton IP106 Illumatech dimmer switch must be installed at the switch location where the hot feed exists. From your description your hot feed is at the regular 3-way switch location. Swap locations.

I have a leviton dimmer and no instructions. It has two black wires and one green wire. how do I hook it up as a single pole dimmer?


One black is will hook up to one of the black wires inside the switch box in the wall and the other will hook to the other black wire in the box, The green will connect to the bare copper wire which is the ground wire.

Hooking up a combination switch with outlet and another switch


ok, i think what you mean is a 3-way switch- meaning two different switches that control one light and a single (pole) switch that only controls one light. you can't do that with the above switch. You need a combination 3-way and single pole switch.
