Question about Lutron Almond - Maestro Incandescent Smart Dimmer - Tap Switch - Multi-Location

2 Answers

Dude. I have a tap switch dimmer that controls a living room wall outlet where I have a lamp plugged in. There is no on-off on this model - just the green indicator lights showing how dim but no little slide on-off switch on the side. It's been working fine for about 3 years. Anyway, we have a storm and three brief power failures now it will not work at all. I reset the breaker but no change. Unplugged the lamp. ..nothing. What up?.

The light dimmer is a thyristor or SCR controlled circuit .It is possible that either the drive SCR is faulty or the circuit with the timer control/variable output IC is faulty. It can be the step down circuit that has failed and so there is no power to the circuits.
You will need to open the unit to confirm if the parts can be replaced or is tugged into a discrete PCB.

I replaced a lighted switch which was not working and was not lighted. The new switch does not work and is not lighted.


From what you are stating I am going to make a few assumptions. That the new switch has been connected properly and that the lamp you are supplying works OK in a different outlet. The only thing left to do is to make sure that you have voltage on the switch. Once this has been ascertained, if no voltage, then you have a broken connection or wire on one of your other switches or outlets as the power is simply 'jumped' (in parallel) around the house from switch to switch or outlet to outlet. If the switch has power, make sure that it is indeed going through the switch when activated. If it is, then the break is between the switch and the outlet. A cheap non contact 'voltage stick', which is a tester which has audible and visual indication when it comes near voltage is a good tool to have if not adept with electrics. Please be careful.

How to wire in an on-off switch for ceiling light from power source going to living room.


Pretty easy if you can get the wires from the existing wall outlet. Just run a wire from existing outlet to the where you want the new light. Install inside an approved ceiling electrical outlet box and then run another wire to where you want the switch or switches. If you go to home depot or the library you can look at the books with diagrams on how to wire it. You can skip the wall switch if you use a light with a pull chain.

Living room wiring. All the outlets and the bright overhead light fixture are all wired to a wall switch, so you can't have any side lamps on without the overhead light. How do I understand this so I can...


The most common way the houses are wired is through the ceiling. The power comes into the box that the light is on. The power is wired to the light on one wire and the other goes down to the switch. The return comes back from the switch and connects to the light. What the did was connect the wire that feeds the outlets to the switch.

There is no power to the speaker, the green light is not showing. We have changed the plug fuse but this was not the problem


If you're talking about a powered subwoofer pluged into an electrical wall outlet check the wall outlet. One of my kids could not get a lamp to turn on in the den. It turned out the outlet was switched off from accross the room by a wall light switch. To check your electric wall outlet, plug in something, like a lamp, fan or a clock and see if it turns on. If not, look for wall light switches and flip them on and off. If it (example fan) dosn't turn on, you have a problem with your house electrical system. Probably right there at that outlet.

I must reprogram my tv each time I turn it on


I'm assuming that you are powering the TV off with the remote, not by shutting off a device (such as a home theater system that it is plugged into) and having it disconnect the power from the cord. if this is how it is shut off, that will be your problem.

Likewise, you may have plugged the TV into an outlet that is operated by a wall switch. These are typically found in rooms that do not have an overhead light, and are designed to control a table lamp. Usually, the receptacle will have one outlet that is on all the time, and the other controlled by a wall switch. Check to make sure that the outlet that the TV is plugged into remains on all the time - regardless of the position of any wall switches.

The solution to both of the above issues is to plug the TV into an outlet that is on all the time. The interruption of household power to the TV is most likely causing the memory loss of the settings in the TV.

The other possibility may be the way you are shutting off the TV each night. Some TVs have an on / off function that works with the remote, but only if the standby power is on. If the standby power is off, the remote will not be able turn the TV on. Some manufacturers use different colored indicating lamps for Off, Standby On and TV On.

Without knowing your brand and model TV, I can't go deeper than that. You'll need to consult your TV manual to see if and how your TV works - or provide the brand and model info so we can see if we can find a solution if none of the above works for you. I hope this helps & good luck.

Different outlet went out after installing dimmer.


It's possible that he living room outlet feeds through the dining room switch and that a wire may have become disconnected when you put in the dimmer. I don't know the specifics of you home layout. If the dining room and living room are on different circuit breaker switches, this is not the problem.
