Unfortunately, there really isn't a whole lot you can do here to fix it, any attempt you make to strengthen the grip on the slider may gum up something else in the process. Usually they test for this sort of thing before it leaves the factory so I'm actually quite surprised. The best suggestion I can offer is to call their technical support line (they're available 24/7) and they will probably replace the unit for you.

I have two black wires in box attached to regular light switch & want to know if I can install a Skylark S-603PG single pole dimmer switch which has one black , one red&white, red and green wires

This is single-pole -or- 3-way dimmer
Manual shows on following link:

1) Manual says: The red/white wire is not used in a single-pole application. Twist a wire
nut over this wire for a single-pole application.
2) Green wire connects to bare ground wire. Or bare ground to bare ground.
3) Connect dimmer-red and dimmer-black to either insulated wire that came off of old switch

Ok i installed the Maestro IR on a switch that runs a celing fan with a light on it. i turned the power back on in the room and the light was flickering and the fan was unresponsive. please help!!

Lutron Maestro IR shows several model numbers:

You posted under MIR600 single pole digital fade dimmer for incandescent and halogen.
Installation manual:
If this is not your dimmer, then add a comment with exact model number so I can read that manual and look for trouble spots.

The manual does not say 'Fan'
It appears this dimmer is for incandescent and Halogen lights.
Manual gives Lutron 24hr/7day tech support number 1-800-523-9466

If you do not want to add a comment for more free assistance, and do not want to call Lutron, then take advantage of fixya phone service.
Expert will walk you through the problem for a price.

Hello - I have just installed two Lutron eco-dimmers in my kitchen.They work expect that the on/off switch is reversed and yet the dimmer toggler is working correctly: slid up it's on and slide down and it...

Double check the model number - is it a TG-600PH or a TG-603PH?

If its a TG-603PH, and this is part of a 3-way circuit (there's another light switch that turns the lights those same lights on & off), then this is normal. If you flick the other light switch, you'll then see that the dimmer works like it should. This has always been the case with 3-way switches, up doesn't necessarily mean "on" and vice-versa.

If its a TG-603PH, and this is part of a single-pole circuit (this is the only light switch for those lights), then the product is miswired, and upside-down. To fix the miswire, look at the screws on the back of the unit (ignore the green grounding screw for the time being), two of those screws are made of the same material (same color), and only one of them should have an electrical wire going to it. Take that wire out and put it on the other screw of the same color. That fixes the miswire. Then when you re-install the device, flip it upside-down from what it was before.

If its DEFINATELY a single-pole, TG-600PH, then call their tech support center at 1-800-523-9466 - because that makes absolutely no sense.

Good luck!

Trying to hook up a Lutron fan control and dimmer

The old switch is just a single pole switch. The new one is for fan speed control. You need to use a regular single pole switch like you had. Or you can use a single pole switch on the Lutron you bought if you can figure out which wires to use. Do you have a meter?
