I have an old easyset E-600VA dimmer connected on single pole to a ceiling light. I want to replace that with a new Leviton toggle switch with dimming slide.

red never connects to black as that is power to neutral if wired correctly get in a qualified electrician to check the wiring and help you install the unit

How can I wire 3 Lutron Dimmer switches in a series? Each switch will control a different set of lights. I pig tailed the black power source to each of the dimmers. I ran the black wire from the l

yes, take the white wires off the switches and splice them all together with a wire nut. Run a hot wire to each of the switches and then run the switch leg (black) from each of the fixtures to be controlled to each of the dimmers.

I am trying to wire a Leviton 3 rocker/4 function switch to a fan with fan/heat/light/night lt. There are 3 colored wires out of the back red,black,blue and 2 load screws.

If the two load screws are connected with a tab that is the power in side. The color wires are the load.

I have had several failures of the Leviton Decora

Seems to be a common problem, you're not alone ( read amazon 1 star reviews). They are $22.00 so you will to dispose of it, if Leviton will not warranty it.

Wiring a leviton 5641 so fan & light turn on separate with red & black wires

the 5641 is a dual switch for three way and single pole. If you want the switches to operate the CF. Connect the power to one of the two screws on the right side as you face the switch. then connect one wire to the screw on the bottom left side. connect the other screw to one of the two screws on the top left. This assumes the Red and Black you mentioned are the switch legs going to the CF.

I have a bedroom switch controlling a ceiling fan (separate speed switch) and a wall switch going to an outlet. I can't get the outlet to work with the wall switch. The fan works fine

You need to verify if there are two wires coming to the wall switch from the receptacle. One should be power in, the other should be power out to the receptacle.

Wire occupancy sensor to control receptacle

Your description doesn't explain the circuit, the function of the wires or how the switch controls the outlet and whether the switch is a single pole or two-pole switch. Without such details it is difficult to visualise the circuit. I advise before you go further to test the sensor in a known good and correctly wired outlet using a length of cable and a suitable plug for the outlet. It is possible the unit is faulty. If it functions correctly on test you will need to understand the circuit and the function of the wires before you rewire it to assure success.

Why does my timer buzz and lights flicker on and off?

The lower priced dimmers are only rated for 400 Watts. If your switch is controlling more than 400 Watts, then you have a problem--with a potential fire waiting to happen. Add up the wattage of each light bulb you are controlling with the switch to determine if you have less or more than 400 Watts. They do make dimmers rated for up to 1000 Watts. If the problem isn't wattage, I suspect you may be using your dimmer to control a motor (like a ceiling fan motor). If this is the case, you have the wrong kind of switch: one designed for lighting, not motors. They do make dimmers designed for motors; they don't buzz when you dial them down.
