Question about Pass & Seymour #R600PLAV 600W Almond SP Rotating Dimmer

1 Answer

We bought a home with a pass seymour dimmer switch in the dining room for an ceiling fixture over the table. It was supposed to be a three way operation with a switch at one side of the dining room and the dimmer at the other end. Can the pass seymour dimmer act as a part of a three way operation?

How high above the dining room table should I hang my electric chandelier?


The height you hang your chandelier above your kitchen tabledepends on the wattage of the light bulbs and the of the chandelier. If you are using lower wattage light bulbs,you should hang the fixture about 2.5 feet above the center of your dining roomtable. If you are using higher wattagebulbs, I suggest hanging it 3 feet about the table so it is not too bright.

Can I connect 2 lights to this dimmer and how do I wire it?


If you want two fixtures to be operated by the same dimmer, it is easier to just connect the fixtures together by twisting leads together and then wire nutting them and then run one set of leads to switch. That way you meet all codes.

Install one dimmer at the load end feeding the light. Install a standard 3way switch at the other end. Make sure the dimmer switch is rated for the type of bulbs in the fixture. ie Led, halogen etc.

If you had four wires, and your dimmer only has three, then it's not going to work. Your existing switch is often called a 4-way (in the US anyway). It is used in between two or more other three way switches. If you have only two switches, they can both be 3 ways (using only three wires). Additional switches have to be 4-ways (using four wires). An option is to use your dimmer at the first or last switch location. But if you want the dimmer at your chosen location, you need a 4-way dimmer. By the way, you can use a 4-way switch in a 3-way situation, by not using one of the terminals on the switch. Please vote if you found this helpful good luck Al K

Three way switch does not work properly


Very interesting problem! But easy to fix. It's not a defective switch, just a minor wiring error, which would be very hard to solve via back and forth text. So, instead of trying to figure out exactly which wires and terminals to swap at the new switch, it would be much easier to simply swap the light and fan wires at the ceiling fixture, I hope this is helpful. Good luck, Al Kupchella

Need to find out how to hook up a toggle switch/outlet


You can't, not without running an additional wire. The black and white pair of wires that you have is most likely routed from the ceiling fixture. The black wire would be the hot wire coming to the switch and the white is the switched hot wire returning to the fixture. You don't have a neutral available at this location, so you can't make the outlet work, just the switch. ----- Sorry for the bad news. Thanks for using fixya. Al Kupchella

How to install a dimmer switch


This is a 3-way switch, made to control a light fixture that is also controlled by another switch in a different location. A typical example is a ceiling light fixture installed in an upstairs hallway, which could be controlled by switches at both top and bottom of the staircase.

The green wire in your switch is the ground connection, and joins to the green insulated or bare copper ground wire in the switch box. The red wire is the common connection. It connects either to the incoming AC hot wire from the electric panel, or to the hot terminal of the light fixture, depending on the switch location. The two black wires are traveller connections. They connect to the traveller terminals of the other 3-way switch.

If you purchased this switch as a replacement for a regular single-pole toggle switch or dimmer switch - one that controls a light from a single location only - then this isn't what you need and you can't use it. You'll know if you have a single-pole switch because it will have only three wires or screw connections. Return it and get a single-pole.

To install this as a replacement for a 3-way toggle switch or dimmer, connect the red wire to the wire going to the common terminal of the original switch. This will be a black- or brass-colored screw on a toggle switch, or the different-colored (not green, that's ground) wire on a dimmer. The black wires connect to the wires that go to the traveller screws (copper-colored) on a toggle switch, or the same-colored wires on a dimmer. It doesn't matter which traveller wire connects to which.

Note that if you're using a 3-way dimmer, only one of the switches can be a dimmer. The other switch has to be a plain old 3-way toggle.

Different outlet went out after installing dimmer.


It's possible that he living room outlet feeds through the dining room switch and that a wire may have become disconnected when you put in the dimmer. I don't know the specifics of you home layout. If the dining room and living room are on different circuit breaker switches, this is not the problem.

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.

Fluorescent dimmir


The dimmer you purchase needs to be compatable with the ballasts of the C.F. light. A compact flourescent potlight has a ballast, if your replacing incandescent bulbs with compact flourecent lamps
you still need a flourescent dimmer. Remember a ballast is like a transformer! If you compact flourecent fixture has a ballast by Lutron. then you need a lutron dimmer as there ballasts are not officially compatable with other dimmers, allthough I've seen them work. My advise is buy Pass & Seymour (Legrand) or Leviton.
