Question about Maestro Lutron Dimmer 600 Watts Ma-600-wh
1) Overview of product indicates it dims by electronics (they say saves 15% electricity)
The electronics might be bad
2) Load types
Different dimmers are made to work with different types of lighting
Depending on your model number, the type of load may be a factor
3) Total load
A regular 15 amp light switch carries 1440 watts
If you have the 600 Watt dimmer, load wattage should not exceed 600W >>> add up total bulb wattage
4) Lutron seems to have about 60 different manuals
A quick look at the wiring seems straightforward 1-1 wiring replacement with ordinary switch
Did you connect ground wire to green screw on dimmer?
5) If the dimmer and load requirements match with the dimmer you own, I think the problem might be a short .... exactly where the short is located is solvable by testing the lights and timer and surrounding circuits with a multi-tester >>> the testing would start at the dimmer.
6) All considered, you could replace the dimmer with another one from Home Depot and see if same problem persists.
