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.

I replaced the Hybrinetics dimmer which is 10-3 stranded wire. Two red one black. 1580 watt max. With the power wire being 12-3 AWG. I replaced with a Leviton 600 watt dimmer. It is a single or 3 way

If the load on the dimmer exceeds 600W you're in trouble. If not, then it's simply dissipating heat (the larger capacity dimmer would also dissipate heat, though would be set up for more heat and feel cooler than the new dimmer).

Lights turning on

Try changing the code in both switches to the next available number. Some one nearby may have set their lights to work off the same code and thus activating yours as well. As to replacements, just google cat# 6319-2. lots of options.

Main switch works, remote switch will turn light off but not on

Has it always been this way or have you recently replaced switches? Regardless, this is typical of the 3way switches being wired incorrectly. One of the travelers and the common are swapped. If you changed the switches it is important that the wires go back on the correct terminals. NOT NECESSARILLY THE SAME PLACE ON THE SWITCH AS THE OLD ONE. The wire that went to the brass screw on the old switch (common) should go to the Com. screw (brass)on the new switch. The remaining 2 wires (travelers) should attach to the remaining screws. Doesn't matter which, just 1 wire to each screw. Both switches should be wired the same way.

Outside a room there are three light switches. one switch is connected to the only light bulb inside the room. each of these three switched can be either "on" or "off". all start in the "off" position

While standing at the switches (outside the room) turn each switch on until the light is activated. You need not be in the room to see the light operating.

Can I use the leviton 15A-125V adapter to a 220V wall socket?

Not an adapter. You need a voltage converter to convert 220Vac to 120VAc.

Wiring diagram for 3 way 2 socket lamp

Where is the switch located? If you buy a replacement switch at Home Depot it usually comes with a diagram that shows you how to wire it. If the switch is built into the light socket just replace the socket the switch is included.

How do i fix leviton dimmer switch OB2704 that sputters ?

Haha...with a new one! No kidding, these dimmer switches are sometimes junk. First of all, make sure that you have the right lamps in each socket - and the wattage is lower than the rating on the dimmer. Otherwise, try a new dimmer switch. Let me know if you need further help. Dimmer switches are a little temperamental, so sometimes you get a bad one in the bunch. The load might be near the maximum rating, so they tend to go out sooner. But then there's others that last for a long time. Try this first, and if you need further assistance, feel free to check back with me. Best of Luck to You! Jim
