Question about Lutron Electronics MAW603RHWH Maestro 3Way Duo Dimmer
The dimmer button original three way Maestro Lutron switches used to break quite frequently. They had an upgrade which re-enforced the weak plastic piece. This too breaks, though not as frequently. The problem is that the switch pivots on a plastic hinge which is about 1 mm in thickness. The rest of the switch is fine and reliable. Can anyone explain how to fix a broken hinge? This means opening the switch which I am ok with.
I will take anybody's broken Lutron dimmers.
Please let me know...

You may want to consider getting an "electronic" dimmer vs. a manual knob or slider. Consider using a Maestro (MA-600-XX where XX is the color). The Maestro fits into a decora opening so you may also want to get a new wallplate (Lutron makes these in a screwless version: CW-1-XX where XX is the color).
Hope this helps.

The Lutron Maestro dimmer isn't rated or designed to operate low voltage lighting as it is a 120 V-AC rated electronic dimmer. You should either install a standard low voltage ON/OFF switch on this installation or obtain a dimmer rated for use on low voltage lights.
You need special low voltage dimmer designed for use on the low voltage pucks lights you have installed. Usually the low voltage is either 12, 24, or 36 volts, depending on the manufacturer of your particular light set. Once the correct dimmer is in place, the problem with the flickering and pulsing of the lights, should cease.
If you still are having this problem and you can't find a low voltage dimmer, you can contact the maker of your low voltage light kit and they can provide you with an acceptable dimmer option for your lights.
Most Home Depot and Lowe's carry the low voltage puck light kits, and usually have accessories for these lights, including dimmer switches that will work with them.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
PS: I found this old, unanswered question and wanted to provide a solution to close out the problem and clear the question from the site.

Because the switches are relatively inexpensive, there aren't kits to repair them when they fail mechanically. Your best bet is to get an exact replacement from a Home Depot or such, turn off the breaker switch, and rewire it exactly as it was, using wire nuts and tape.
