My wiring is white, black & red. When the dimmer is installed the switch operates from the dimmer and only turne off from the second switch of the three way wiring.

The correct way to wire this switch is the wire that was on the gold or dark colored screw of the old three way switch is called the shunt or common terminal. The wire connected to this terminal is to be connected to the black wire of the three way dimmer. The other two wires are connected to the silver or light colored terminals of the switch. These are the traveler terminals. The traveler wires may be connect to either traveler terminal - it does not matter which.

If you have already disconnected the old switch, simply connect the dimmer wires to the house wires as shown top to bottom in each configuration below until you get it to work as expected:


Config1 Config2 Config3

B R R B R R B R R Dimmer Wires: B = Black R= Red R = Red
R W B B R W W R B House Wires: R = Red W= White B= Black



In two configurations or less, you'll have found the correct wiring for the switch. I hope this helps & good luck! Please rate my reply. Thank you.

    Connect dimmer's black wire to the HOUSE BLACK wire and the dimmer reds wires to the remaining wires. Check switch. If not right, connect dimmer black to HOUSE RED and dimmer reds to remaining wires. Check again. If still not right, connect dimmer black to HOUSE WHITE and dimmer reds remaining wires. One combination should be correct.

    Sorry for the confusion, my original answer was formatted but when uploaded, the formatting was stripped making it difficult to see how to connect. A second attempt was only *slightly* better. I finally gave up & wrote it out long hand.

Can I reuse a Lutron Maestro MAW-603 dimmer in a 2 way situation?


you should be able to by hooking up the black wire on the dimmer to the hot wire(that comes from the electrical panel) in the wall box and the red wire from dimmer to the switch leg(the wire that goes to light fixture). if the dimmer has a white wire(nuetral wire) you will need to hook that up to the white wires in the wall box....CAUTION!!! when removing the old 1 pole switch, there should only be 2 wires and possibly a green or bare copper ground wire attached to it. if either of the 2 wires(not the ground) are white, IT IS MISLABLED OR MISCOLORED. DO NOT hook the dimmers white wire to it cuz it will fry the dimmer. If this is the case, then most likley you do not have a nuetral in the wall box but look anyway for a couple of white wires tied together with a wire nut and stuffed in the back of the box. if you find those than most likely thats your neutral(check with a wiggy or meter to be sure) and thats where the dimmers white wire goes. hook up the dimmers green wire to a green or bare copper wire in the wall box and then put a wire nut on the dimmers red w/white stripe wire.

Lutron Dimmer: 'IN' does not always equal "ON"


These are probably three-way switches being used as two-way. If so, then the switches will have three terminals, but only use two. Just switch one of your wires to the other terminal. If the light will not light, that was the wrong wire. Don't mess with it without turning off the breaker! Good luck.

New dimmer switch not working


Hi -

The Lutron D600P is a preset single pole dimmer. Wiring is pretty straight forward as show in this diagram. Recheck wiring and if OK, continue below.

If power is present on both wires (black / red wires), power is being passed through the switch to the lamp and the light should be on. If not, try replacing the lamp.

Minimum recommended connected load is 40 watts. This switch is ONLY for use with filament type lamps - such as traditional tungsten, halogen, etc. It is NOT to control speed of Fan Motors, nor dimming of CFL (compact fluorescent lamps) energy saving types or other ballast operated lamps such as High (or Low) Pressure Sodium, Metal Halide, Fluorescent, etc. as this would create a high heat condition and could cause a fire.

If you're still having trouble, you can contact Lutron Technical Support Center 1.800.523.9466 24 hrs / 7 days www.lutron.com

I hope this helps & good luck!

with a three way switch like this, you will have two traveller wires and a common wire. Look in the instructions for the switch or on the back of the device itself to see if there is a wire labeled "common" or "com". This common wire from the old switch hooks up to the common wire on the new switch. I did a bit of searching on the leviton 6602, but couldn't find anything specifically about the three way version (I would venture to guess, however, that the red wire on the old switch is the common). The common on one of the three way switches will always be a constant hot (or power) wire...the common on the other three way switch will be the "switch leg" or the wire that connects directly to the light. The two travellers go to the other two wires. Check the pamplet that came with the lutron device, it should show which wire is common and which are travellers.

You should have just two wires plus a ground hooked up to the dimmer. It should install just like the maestro. If you are getting no lights with a double tap, or tap and hold, and if the led is not on, it is one of several things. Most are basic, but will list anyway. Check that your connections are good. Make sure you have power there. Make sure the bulbs are good. If all is fine, you probably have a defective dimmer if it worked prior to this. To test, take the dimmer out, restore power, and carefully touch one insulated wire to the other one. If the light comes on, it is the dimmer at fault.

You are saying that you have a "4-way circuit". That means that you originally had two 3-way switches and at least one 4-way switch. ALL existing mechanical switches _must_ to be replaced with electronic dimmers in order for things to work correctly. You must have only _one_ master dimmer (MA-600) located wherever you desire. All of the other switch locations must be companion dimmers (MA-R)., NOT mechanical switches.

The MAW-603-RH comes with a master dimmer and one companion dimmer, so I suspect that you need to install one more companion dimmer.

How do I wire up a Maestro Lutron MAW-603-RH dimmer in a 4-way situation?


If you bought the 3-way package, there should've been two products included: the MA-600- and the MA-R. First of all, if this is a four way circuit, that means you currently have at least three switch locations. The package you bought takes cares of two of those locations, but to get the third, you need another MA-R. If there are more locations than that, each additional location requires an MA-R.

It doesn't matter which product (the MA-600 or the MA-R) you put at each location. They all wire the same.

At the 3-way locations (ends of the lighting circuit), install the dimmers just like you would a standard 3-way switch. The only thing I caution you, make sure that the blue screw on the dimmer is connected to one of the traveller wires going to the next switch box. Also note what color wire its attached to - because when you go to that next switch box, the blue screw of that dimmer needs to tie to that same wire. At the 4-way switch box, the most important thing to remember is this.... make sure all the blue screws are connected together (which is why its important to know WHICH wire is connected to the 3-way switches).

As long as you have enough product and you tie the blue screws together, it should work.

Lutron Dimmer manuals
http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro%C2%AE+dimmer+%26+switch

Lutron manuals show a couple things that might be affecting you lights.
1) Wattage: If you have wrong wattage dimmer
2) Type of light bulb: Dimmers work on different types of bulbs
3) Wiring: You say you got 3 wires going to the chandelier? Why you got 3 wires? Is this a 3 way switch? Are the chandelier bulbs wired separately so you can control groups of bulbs with different switches?
Does the dimmer have 3 screws? A dark-colored screw and 2 brass screws? If so, then that sounds like a 3-way dimmer. A 3-way, is where more than one switch controls the same light.

Does the dimmer have 2 screws? Then that dimmer controls a single circuit. Your black Hot wire from breaker box connects to one screw and the black wire to Load connects to other screw.
A quick glance at Lutron wiring manual shows that Hot and Load wires connect to either screw.
The question is your 3-wires from the chandelier ... does the black Hot wire from breaker arrive in the ceiling box first? Or does it arrive in the wall box first? If your Hot arrives in ceiling box, then the Hot must come down to the switch box and connect to a screw on the dimmer >>> a second wire connects to other screw on dimmer and travels up to the ceiling box where it connects to black wire on chandelier. The white wire on chandelier connects to white Neutral.
4) Dimmer might be bad
