Question about Lutron Electrical Supplies
SOURCE: I have just installed the
YOu need to make sure that the maestro you installed is designed for use with electric motors. CHeck out this page on the lutron site... http://www.lutron.com/CMS400/page.aspx?id=16955&mn=1797. THese are the dimmers you can use with a fan. If it is in the same box the magnetic interference can cause the types of reactions you are mentioning.
If this is not the problem you need more info-- is the light part of the fan, is there a separate wire for fan motor and light? what type of switch is controlling the light (assuming the maestro dimmer is controlling the fan motor etc...

This dimmer was not made to dim a load smaller than 40VA. That halogen bulb would only have been 20VA or so.
I think that when your bulb burnt out, the dimmer over-volted the transformer and smoked it. That said, I think you have a fixture problem and, possibly, a switch problem, too.

The old switch is just a single pole switch. The new one is for fan speed control. You need to use a regular single pole switch like you had. Or you can use a single pole switch on the Lutron you bought if you can figure out which wires to use. Do you have a meter?

The type of track heads you are using could be creating the problem. Are the lamps Par 20, Par 30 (screw in base) or MR-16 low voltage (push in base)? If the track head has a small (2"x4") box and uses MR-16 lamps then you need to use a dimmer specifically designed for ELECTRONIC LOW VOLTAGE. Incandescent lights (screw in base) and Electronic low voltage need a different signal to dim. Using a standard dimmer for electronic low voltage will work for a while, but then either the dimmer or the fixtures will go bad. If your lamps are incandescent or halogen you may have just had a bad dimmer. (Not common for Lutron products) but the part number you list should be good for 1000watts and should not be the issue.
Please see "Dimming Basics" under the helpful information tab for a better explanations of the two different styles of dimming. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: 3-way dimmer dead
It could be a loose connection, and it could be a loose connection on the OTHER 3-way switch across the room. Also, verify that the dimmer is rated for the fixture(s): add together the wattage of each individual light bulb that the dimmer controls and make sure that the dimmer has a higher wattage rating. If it isn't, you might have burned up your dimmer (and risked an electrical fire). Hope this helps!
