This can be a problem that the manufacture states in their literature. I would try to change the code for the remote if see if that would clear the problem. Good luck

System malfunction

Are these remote controlled dimmers? Do you have failing batteries in one of the remotes? Or perhaps a new remote control device has been introduced in or near your house that interferes with the dimmer remote signal. I had a similar problem that occurred when my boys played with their remote controlled cars.

Lights turn themselves on and off

I have seen conditions of poor / missing ground, high humidity and nearby two way radio operation (CB, Ham, Police, Taxi, etc.) cause unattended operation (on and off).

Make sure the switch surfaces are clean and dry. Try changing metal switch plates to plastic / nylon (and vice-versa) types.

Ensure that the switch is grounded. Before removing switch from box, shut power OFF. Carefully pull the switch from the box and make sure the switch's ground wire is connected to the ground conductors in the box.

Ultimately, if you are unable to solve the problem with these true touch dimmers, changing to a rotary knob / slide operated dimmer or even a standard toggle switch should work without incident.

I hope this helps and good luck!

I turned off the power prior to changing a bulb controlled by a Leviton true touch dimmer. Now, the touch functions no longer work. the light is stuck on bright (dimmer doesn't work) and I can only...

The switch has a protected memory and will go to the default setting in case of power failure or shut off. Make sure you swapped it with the same watt/type bulb. You can always shut off the power to the dimmer for a few min. and turn it back on to force a reset.

Wiring Question

No, the way the motor speed control works is different from the way a light dims. If you connect it, it might work for a while, but it will either burn up the dimmer or the fan motor.

My new fan with light fixture is hooked up but it only works through the pull strings not from my wall dimmer. Can someone please tell me why and what do I need to do to have it work from the wall dimmer....

It depends if the fan and lights are ran for separate control. If only one power line is ran from the fan to the switch location than you are out of luck. You should install a switch instead of a dimmer because a fan is not designed to work with a dimmer. A dimmer works by rapidly turning the power on and off faster than our eyes can detect creating a dimming effect for lights. This is not good for your fan. The strength of the fan speed will be limited by the dimming/power output of the light dimmer.

Dark -- background seems to dark with night time shows

To check your lamp useage hours: 1. turn on TV by touching the POWER button on the TV, not on the remote
2. press and hold CHANNEL DOWN and MENU on the TV
3. using remote, select "SERVICE ALIGNMENT (or something)" from the menu. 4. press VOLUME UP to V90
5. press CHANNEL UP If you have around 1500-2000 hours, then you'll need a new lamp soon. Don't wait too long... It will get dimmer and dimmer at an ever-increasing rate.

Fan and dimmer remote does not work

The remote is a Hampton Bay remote that should dim the light and fan on and off. I replaced the battery and do not have a red light when I press the button. Light and fan does not turn off with remote.

Lights flicker when turned off by remote

I had this same problem with a Hampton Bay fan with a remote light switch. I call the manufacturer of the of the switch and was told that the model switch I had would not work correctly with CFL bulbs. The problem is with the dimmer function. You either need to change the bulbs to incandescent, or change the remote receiver in the ceiling. Hampton Bay was kind enough to send me a new receiver that works with CFL. The CFL units are white, and the incandescent is black. Hope this helps you.
