Question about Lutron CA-1PSH-LA Almond Claro Switch
Hi .. If you have only one wire on the switch, then there is another wire that has broken away from the connection. or a wire has become disconnected. There needs to be two wires for the switch to function. Look inside the wall box and see if you can locate the other wire. Then use the two wires to connect to your new switch.

First check and see where the white wires to the switch originate from in the lighting circuit. If it is from the black or (HOT) wire of the lighting circuit. It is connected correctly. Put black electrical tape on the wires near the switch. If the white wires going to the switch originate from or are connected to the white wire ( Circuit Neutral ) in the lighting circuit. This is wrong never put a switch in the neutral side of any circuit. Connect one white wire that is going to the switch to the black (Hot ) wire in the lighting circuit. Then connect the other white wire coming from the switch to the light or object to be operated. Tape this with black tape near the switch and near the object to be operated,for identification later on. BUT ABOVE ALL. BE SURE TO TURN OFF THE POWER BEFORE WORKING ON ELECTRICAL CIRCUITS.

Switches always connect to hot (black) wires. In some cases you may find a white wire with the end taped black denoting it is serving as a hot (black) wire. Or you may find a white wire connected to the switch. If that's the case, the prior electrician did not properly mark the wire and it should be marked as a black wire. Wrap the end with black electrical tape after disconnecting.
