Question about Maestro Lutron MAW-603-RH 3-way 600 Watt Preset Package
For 100% certainty, I would call Lutron's tech support at 1-800-523-9466. They're available 24/7 and can probably troubleshoot it more effectively than through this text-based dialogue. However...
I have three guesses...
1) Check the minimum load. The minimum load for those products is about 40-Watts. If there isn't enough lamp wattage pulling electricity through the dimmer, the dimmer may not have enough juice to keep itself powered up... and then shut down (hence any flashing you may see). If the issue only happens when the lights are at full (or close to full) brightness, then that's most likley your issue. To solve, either increase the lamp wattage, or replace with a dimmer that contains a neutral wire such as the MAELV-600M.
2) Check the load type. The dimmer's are rated for incandescent & halogen. If these are LED or CFL lamps, you are going t see issues. For dimming performance, either convert the lamps to incandescent / halogen, or investigate their new Diva dimmer for CFLs & LEDs: DVCL-153P-
3) If neither of those solve the problem, the next guess is to check the wiring. I wouldn't expect this to cause any "flashing" but in the wiring circuit, each device had a blue screw attached to it, and you need to make sure that the blue screws are wired/connected to each other and ONLY to each other - otherwise "automatic" dimming can take place.
But again, the only way to be certain is to use their tech support. I highly encourage you to use that.
