Lights require a minimum voltage. Reset minimum to a brighter level.

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.

SOURCE: Lutron Dimmer Not Dimming But On/Off Works

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: Dimmer won't dim or turn off

Hello Justin, The dimmer you are having the problem with is very likely defective and should be replaced. If you still have the receipt and purchased it within the past 30-90 days from either Lowe's or Home Depot, they will allow a return for full credit and you can get a new one.

If you got this from another store, again, the receipt will be key in getting your money refunded and a new replacement.

Since many manufacturers have started to use more offshore facilities for making their products, there has been an increased amount of faulty or defective units, but the good news is that the prices have remained reasonable and the manufacturers are willing to replace defective products since they know of the quality issues.

If you don't have a receipt, hopefully you charged it on a credit card, so the big box stores can find it using your credit card data.

As an electrician, I've experienced more and more defective dimmers in the past several years, so much so that I typically get a couple of extras for each home I'm wiring. Just remember to tell the returns person that the unit didn't work so they can RTV (return to vendor) the dimmer for quality tracking, etc.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: I am trying to install two Lutron dimmers in the

My first thought is that if you were using these devices to replace existing light switches, the MA-S8AM has an additional electrical connection that wasn't necessary with a light switch or the MA-600. The MA-S8AM has an addtional screw on it (I think its silver in color) that connects to the neutral wire in the circuit. Hopefully you have a bunch of white wires all wire-nutted together in the back of the box - pull a connection from there and attach.

If that's not the issue, then I would call Lutron's tech support. They're available 24/7, so you may as well. They're at 1-800-523-9466.

SOURCE: I have a lutron skylark

It is neither - it is rated for incandescent lamps only. It sounds like someone suggested that your puck ligths are being controlled by electronic low-voltage transformers, in which case, if you wanted to stick to the Skylark family, should be an SELV-300P-WH.

If you're not sure about any of this, I suggest calling Lutron's tech support line. It's at 1-800-523-9466, they're available 24/7, and can double-check the recommendation.

When I dim the light it starts flickering--I have a 3 way TG 600PH-WH


Check rating plate on device, or rating that shows in product manual.
Also if the dimmer does not need neutral wire to power the device, then it will be rated for incandescent-only, and not be rated for CFL
This dimmer is for incandescent light only up to 600 watts, and will not work as expected for CLF bulbs etc

1 Answer

I have a Meastro dimmer MAW-600 W that is installed, but the light does not turn on and the LED keeps blinking. Any idea what the problem can be?


1) If this installation was working before, the Maestro has a small pull-out circuit breaker that lets you reset the device. This is called the FASS Front Accessible Service Switch, located at bottom of dimmer where it meets cover plate.
Open sample Lutron Maestro dimmer manual to see FASS illustration
http://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/0301106A.pdf

2) If this is new installation, then double-check your wiring and check that load matches dimmer capacity: 600 watt incandescent or halogen, which excludes CFLs apparently.
Some electronic devices have shortened lifespan on circuits that are not clean. Use circuit analyzer on outlet on same breaker to see if line has interference.

3) I don't see MAW-600 W listed among Maestro dimmers, so I don't have that specific manual.
http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro%C2%AE+dimmer+%26+switch

4) Amazon certainly shows the MAW-600 W, in case you need a replacement.

5) Lutron has customer service numbers:

Hello - I have just installed two Lutron eco-dimmers in my kitchen.They work expect that the on/off switch is reversed and yet the dimmer toggler is working correctly: slid up it's on and slide down and it...


Double check the model number - is it a TG-600PH or a TG-603PH?

If its a TG-603PH, and this is part of a 3-way circuit (there's another light switch that turns the lights those same lights on & off), then this is normal. If you flick the other light switch, you'll then see that the dimmer works like it should. This has always been the case with 3-way switches, up doesn't necessarily mean "on" and vice-versa.

If its a TG-603PH, and this is part of a single-pole circuit (this is the only light switch for those lights), then the product is miswired, and upside-down. To fix the miswire, look at the screws on the back of the unit (ignore the green grounding screw for the time being), two of those screws are made of the same material (same color), and only one of them should have an electrical wire going to it. Take that wire out and put it on the other screw of the same color. That fixes the miswire. Then when you re-install the device, flip it upside-down from what it was before.

If its DEFINATELY a single-pole, TG-600PH, then call their tech support center at 1-800-523-9466 - because that makes absolutely no sense.

Good luck!

I have a DL-3PSLHW-WH switch with no wiring diagram. It is single pole or 3-way. Need diagram.


You posted under Lutron 3-way dimmer.

You didn't say the number of screw terminals on device or color of those screws.
If your device has two brass screws, then it is single pole.
If your device has 2 brass screws and 1 dark screw, then device is 3-way
If you are replacing 3-way switch, identify wire on dark screw >> connect this wire to dark screw on dimmer. Other two wires connect to either brass screw.

If device has wires instead of screws, the color of those wires is an important clue.
Answer back with the colors of those wire and it is easier to help.

Different dimmers are suitable for different types of lighting.
In an effort to help you, I searched my files for Lutron dimmers.
Lutron has 17 dimmer types, with numerous models under each type
They don't show DL-3PS
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/Pages/DimmersSwitches.aspx

Lutron has NT-3PS
http://www.lutron.com/Products/StandAloneControls/Dimmers-Switches/NovaTDimmer/Pages/ModelNumbers.aspx

The NT-3PS is a 3-way dimmer.
Here is wiring manual:

Lutron dimmers throught the house, lights go high brightness to low all by themselves, is this just a bad dimmer?


I have spent considerable time on the Lutron site past couple days looking at their dimmers.

Lutron has a lot of dimmer varieties. The basic breakdown is 600Watt and 1000Watt. But different dimmers control different types of lighting.
Here is the long list of Lutron dimmer manuals:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;}

http://www.lutron.com/Service-Support/Technical/InstallationInstructions/Pages/InstallationInstructions.aspx?syst=Dimmers+%26+Switches&prodn=Maestro%C2%AE+dimmer+%26+switch


I cannot find a specific troubleshoot manual for Lutron dimmers
So I suggest 4 things:
1) Feel the dimmer switch for heat >>> if it is getting hot (not warm), then that dimmer is dangerous, so remove dimmer immediately, add up your total bulb wattage to make sure you're below the 600 or 1000 watt capacity of you model dimmer
2) Look at the list of manuals shown at link, and make sure your dimmer matches the type of bulb you are using. Your dimmer model number and wattage should be printed on side or back of dimmer.
3) These dimmers use electronics to control the lights. Electronics go bad. The higher the wattage controlled by your dimmer, the more heat, and the shorter the dimmer life.
4) Short in the wires. Replace your dimmer with one from Home Depot and see if the condition persists. If it does, then a short is probably somewhere in that circuit. Troubleshooting a short is another long answer that needs more wiring detail ... please repost if you have a short.
