Question about Leviton Electrical Supplies
Posted by Anonymous on
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

What sort of light is it , dimmer switches normally only work on Incandescent type lights not flourescent type.
Otherwise it sounds as if the dimmer function is faulty.

the light on the switch does not men it is wired correctly, it only means that you have supplied power at that point. Without knowing more its hard to say, but I'll assume this is a single switch operating a single unit. That being the case, and depending on your fixture, occassionally wires must be grouped together on the switch side. Also quite often these switches are simply defective, and must be returned. If you think you have it correct then its probably a bad switch.

sounds like a loose connection to me, check to make sure all connections are tight. sometimes the bulbs themselves don't make a good connection in there socket.
u will have to take the switches out of the wall box and make sure the wires are tight, whether they are on screws or wires connected to wires. if it is wires to wires u may have to take that apart to make sure u don't have a bad connection there.
if it is none of that, then it is time to replace the switches

I recently purchased a Leviton Dimmer switch which has a brown lead. This switch is to replace 1 of 2, 3 way switches that control the ceiling light in my kitchen. My problem is the new dimmer switch has 4 leads including a brown one which has me confused. I have installed and replaced numerous dimmer switches without difficulty. Please help.

Hook one of the wires that was connected to the black wire to the silver screw, one to the brass screw. Does not matter which. If there is no ground (bare or green) then you can hook one from the green screw on the switch to the box where the other grounds are connected.
