I assume that you're talking about a remote-controlled ceiling fan.

There are two parts to a remote-control setup -- the transmitter (the switch which you use to operate the fan and/or light), and the receiver (which receives the signals sent by the transmitter, and directly controls the fan and/or light).

The receiver -- which should look like a plastic rectangle, usually white, grey, or orange-brown in color -- can be identified by the fact that it has several colored wires coming out of it, and doesn't have any buttons. This is mounted in the ceiling fan itself. On nearly all setups, it goes inside the canopy (the decorative part of the ceiling fan, up by the ceiling, which hides the fan's electrical wires).

The transmitter may be either hand-held like a television remote control, or in-wall mounted like a light switch. If you have the hand-held variety, there is nothing to install in a wall box. The wall-box wires should be appropriately connected up, and a blank cover plate should be put on top of the gang box.

If, on the other hand, you have the in-wall variety of transmitter, then yes -- it gets mounted in the wall, in a gang box, like a normal light switch or outlet.

If you need any further clarification, please feel free to ask!

Jiffy toggle switch


yes, cut the wire about 18" - 24" from the plug end, then install a regular wall light switch in an outdoor style weather proof single toggle switch gang box. Available all day at your local DIY Center.

I have done this with portable pumps that I take with me on the job site at times. I do something a little different by taking one extra step for safety reasons. I use a "Double" gang box instead of a Single and install a GFCI outlet next to the switch where the GFCI is wired first and the switch is wired in after the GFCI so it is protected from any possible shock. and the pump will be protected as well.

Good Luck

Lutron dimmer switch # D1500 1500 120vac Voltage to switch is OK but lights(8 100watts) do not go on.


I can't locate the Lutron D1500 dimmer switch on Lutron web site. Perhaps there is a different number for it.

Anyway, you are attempting to dim a total of 800 watts of light. A standard dimmer switch will not handle this much of a load as they are rated for 600 watts. A 1000 dimmer is the next size up and would be the minimum rating to be used. This means the dimmer would be operating at 80% of capacity and the switch may become warm - but all within acceptable limits.

A dimmer switch rated at 1200 watts or even 1500 watts may be a better choice, as the 800 watt load would present a load that would only be 66% and 53% (respectively) of rated capacity, and would likely run cooler and last a lot longer.

The down side to these higher wattage rated switches is their cost. It is not unusual for the price to double for a 600w vs a 1000w dimmer.

Sometimes, a 1000w dimmer is not sufficient to control a 600w load. This happens when 2 or more dimmer switches are installed in a single location under one wall plate. It is a fairly common arrangement for electricians to install 2, 3 or more "ganged boxes" so that there aren't 2, 3 or more individual switches clustered around a doorway. Even though a two ganged box has twice the area of a one gang box, the issue is about heat dissipation. A box will contain the heat. So the heat is given up from the front of the switch. The metal fins provide more area for cooling. When two or more dimmers are located in a multiple-ganged box, there is too much heat for the space. Two 600 watt dimmers would need to be derated to about 450 watts each (instructions for derating are included with the switch - each manufacturer has their own formulas), and if three 600 watt dimmers were in a single location, they might need to be derated to 300 watts each. So, simply moving to a 1000 watt or 1200 watt dimmer may not get you to the 600 watt level if there are several dimmers that require derating to 50%. Installing dimmers in boxes with standard "toggle" type (non-dimming) switches require no derating as toggle switches do not produce appreciable heat.

Make sure that the lighting load is a type designed for dimming. The popular CFL (compact fluorescent lamps) are not designed for dimming, unless the package specifically states otherwise. Lights that have a filiment but no transformer, ballast, starter, etc. are the only ones suitable for use with a dimmer (again - unless the package / fixture states otherwise). The dimmable types are typically "standard" incandescent, quartz, halogen and tungsten types.

Furthermore, a dimmer switch is not suitable for use as a fan speed control either. There are special switches to provide speed control of fan motors. Use of a dimmer on a motor load is a fire hazard.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Your switch has 2 wires, and 2 brass screws, and new switch will have same.
Connect either wire to new switch.
Connect bare ground wire to green screw.
Turn power off, remove screws that hold switch into box, pull out switch, take photo of wiring, install new switch.
If wires are pushed into back of switch, then use small screwdriver and push into slot to release wire.

How to connect three gang switch to control three lights, using two 1mm double core


What is 1mm double core?
Following image shows example 120Volt 4 gang switches with outlet.
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Single-pole-switches-in-4-g.jpg
Each 120Volt electrical box has one Hot wire. This is true for ceiling and wall boxes.
Normally in a gang box, the Hot wire jumpers across all devices in the box.
Some switch boxes do not have Neutral wire. Neutral wires are usually white, and are twisted together and covered with wire nut and shoved to back of box.
Open following links for typical 120V and 240V circuits in US.
http://waterheatertimer.org/B220C.html

Feel free to add a comment and describe wiring, and voltage.
For example if hot wire arrives from one of the lights.
Describe the wires that you have, and what each wire goes to for best possible answer.

So you're replacing the receptacle in the 2 gang box with a switch that will control a receptacle? If so there's no reason you couldn't use the feed from the receptacle. As long as you maintain the integrity of any existing runs through the box...you're not adding any devices really so there shouldn't be a problem with the branch circuit device count. Bear in mind this stuff has the potential to burn your house down so be real clear on what you're doing and make a good secure job of it. When in doubt call in a pro....

It does not matter whether you turn on the switch or the switch is motion
activated, the light does not know who turns it on.

The switch must be designed for florescent.

What do you mean by proper base, you have a single gang wall box,
that's a box inside the wall, with the electric and a switch,
The gang could be single or hold 5 switches, which ever is installed.

Most all switches fill fit into any gang box.

I tried to install a fan light control switch for


The reason the fan and light are running together is because the are both running on one power wire. The three wires you have in the wall are probably white black and bare copper. You need to run a four wire cable which has a white red black and bare copper in order for you to separate the light and fan and for the circuit to run properly. A DIY electrical book from lowes or the home depot would help you alot with your situation.
