Question about Leviton 5634 Dual 1 Pole Switch Decora Combo Device

1 Answer

I am trying to install Leviton Decora Combo 3-Way switches (#5641-A). The instructions that are printed on the interior of the package are beyond unhelpful. Can anyone explain to me how to install and wire these switches?? I have a building inspection tomorrow and MUST have these in to pass!

Did the lights have the 3 way switch before?? If so, you should be able to follow the map on the package, remember it is totally unlike anything else in the house, I have seen grown electricians cry with 3 way switches in their hands. One of the wires is a jumper, you need 3 wires in each box, one hot , one neutral, one jumper, now depending on how the first guy did it, will determine what route you will take, I can't explain it over the fone here, but you should be able to see it when you know what you are looking at. Remember, one wire jumps, to the other switch, it will be on the same screw at the other end, the hot will be on the same screw at the other end, and the neutral will be on the same screw at the other end, hopefully. Sometimes they terminate the jumper at the light. So you might only have 2 wires on one side. Check it out, i hope this helps.

I have a leviton double switch that i can't get to work. I have 3 white and 3 black in the box


Try the link below for a diagram.
I would think that you have one black feed and two black legs going out, and three common wires that should be wired together with a wire nut. Is this for a ceiling fan with a light? or ?

Hello.
There is no schematic shown online for that specific product.
Leviton shows a spec sheet on their website but no wiring schematic.
http://www.leviton.com/OA_HTML/ibeCCtpItmDspRte.jsp?sitex=10026:22372:US&item=8938

However the spec sheet does show the screw terminals on one side of device that indicate this is ordinary combo switch-outlet.

Open following link for illustration of combo switch-outlet:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Combination-switch-outlet-6.jpg
The problem that usually confronts people when they replace light switch with combo is that the combo requires additional neutral wire to power the outlet.
Neutral wires are the white wires twisted together and covered with wire nut that are pushed to back of electric box. Connect a short piece of white wire to the neutrals, and connect that wire to screw on combo device. If your electrical box does not have these neutral wires, you can get the outlet to work by using bare ground wire instead of white neutral, but I would never recommend this action as it violates national electric code and would not pass home inspection and would cause risk to electrician working on that same circuit who was unaware of a code violation.

Where can a get information how to install a automatically turn light swicht leviton model occupancy sensor m,odel


What's the problem? You can get instructions at leviton website but also suggest you read competing products manuals to build perspective. These are difficult to install in 3 way wiring situations. In 3-way they only seem to work well when wired to load not line side. In 3 way I suggest you wire in 2. There is a certain way of doing this. I just looked at instructions for Leviton's competition.

-Replace the compact florescent bulbs with regular incandescent bulbs and see if problem continues.
-Lighting controls are made for different kinds of bulbs.
-Your package should say what the watt rating and type of bulb.

According to the PR180 manual:
-I am looking at the Leviton PR180 occupancy sensor manual, and the PR180 sell-sheet, and these documents say for incandescent and fluorescent (rapid-start magnetic ballast only).
-Compact fluorescent are supposed to have a magnetic ballast.
-The manual does not specifically say it works with 'compact fluorescent'
-The manual does not say there is a minimum amount of wattage either. Some controls will not work correctly if the overall wattage is low. Your overall wattage is 39watts.

Read the product package (if this is a new installation and you have the package)
Try the incandescent bulbs.
If the PR180 is not your product, add a comment with product number and I'll look for information
