How do I connect a Leviton 6230M in line with a humidistat controller ... so any one of these sources will activate bathroom exhaust fan 120v ac

You parallel the contacts then either one or both will turn it on. Both have to be off for the fan to stop.

I cannot turn off light that uses a Leviton Cat /no 16400, DHC switch not can i find the receiver box that controls the lights

A Leviton DHC receiver device can look like any other switch or receptacle so if you didn't install it or not provided a map then you'll need to locate it.

Likely the wall switch that originally controlled the light was replaced with DHC device and paired with the 16400 at another location. If you can't identify it, then removing face plates and devices may be the only practical method to locate it.

If your not comfortable with removing devices safely, hire an electrician.

Have a 5 10 15 30 leviton timer to bath fan. switch is now buzzing though had been fine. what's going on.

The Leviton LTB30 20 amp timer has a known design flaw. It has a 1 microfarad electrolytic capacitor installed against a screaming hot resistor. Cooks and dries out the cap even when not in use. 50% failure rate in my initial install of 4 units. Pull it apart and replace the electrolytic with a ceramic cap and it will be fine. I have two of many that have already failed. Poor design of voltage regulation and poor layout of cheap components that self destruct. Design is not half baked, it is fully baked, lol. Can be fixed though, so not all bad...

Thought I wired leviton 5224 correctly, but looks like switch for fan is ok, but the only time light switch works is when fan runs also, so must keep light always on. What can be wrong?

It's two single pole switches with a removable jumper on one side. With jumper intact, you connect the hot feed to a either screw of the jumper which I belive are brass colored screws.

Then the two induvidual switch poles are the silver screws. Connect fan motor to one and fan light to the other.

If that doesnt work for you, take a picture of the switch and connections and another of wires in fan box and post here.

Im installing a two way switch and have one hot

If I understand you correctly, your hot lead should attach to 1 switch and a common wire goes from that switch to the other switch. Here's a link to a good explanation of 2 way switch wiring. Essentially you run power to one switch, and that same switch sends power via 1 of 2 other wires to the second switch. The light (or other device) is then connected to the second switch. Hopefully the diagrams in the following link will help you. In any case you need 3 wires at each switch. Good luck!

New Leviton 'lighted, decorative' switch flickers when off

You cannot use standard electronic dimmer switches with CFL bulbs, only incandesant bulbs! That is why you are getting the flickering.

With CFL's bulbs installed in a light fixture that has a non-flouresant rated dimmer switch on that circuit, you will cause the standard dimmer to fail.

You have to look at the dimmer package (sometimes printed on the back of the dimmer itself too) to see if it can be used with CFL bulbs,as many are not rated for use with anything other than standard incandesant bulbs.


Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

My Leviton VPT24 Outside light switch went totally blank. The light do not turn on. Is there an internal battery?

https://www.leviton.com/sites/REST/controller/LCDownloadController/download/DI-000-VPT24-02F-W.pdf?docurl=/en/docs/DI-000-VPT24-02F-W.pdf Yes, but appears to be non-serviceable... and its probably just a 3.2vdc lithium coin battery inside the case yet they decided to make it so you have to buy a replacement every 10+yrs. Crack it open and see (dill off any rivet heads).

Using a #5224 Combination two

I think you have your wires connected to wrong screw.

Wiring devices have screws that are color-coded as you noticed.
The Hot wire from breaker connects to dark colored screw(s).
The wires to Load (ceiling light-outdoor light) connect to brass screws.

If you need more help, add a comment at bottom and I will help further
