Does the paddle illuminate

Asked by Dwight October 3, 2020

Answers

Yes. The rocker is lighted when the switch is off so you can see it in the dark. They are awesome.

Will the switch Illuminate if I use it to power a outside plug ,even if nothing is plugged into it ?

yes

Installed this switch to an outlet. Switch only lights up when there is something plugged into the outlet. Is this how its supposed to work?

Asked by Wlhommedieu July 1, 2020

Answers

I have two wall outlets controlled by these switches and both light up without anything plugged into them. As a reminder, the switch is only intended as a locator in the dark and only lights up when it is in the "off" position. It shouldn't matter whether something is plugged in or not. However, f the light stays on while the plugged in item is being powered "on," you should have your wiring checked as the switch may actually be bypassed in the circuitry. Good luck!

Is the light in the switch suppose to flicker or stay solid?

Lights that are wired correctly should not flicker but if you have an LED bulb with a non LED switch, that could be the culprit. That happened to us after our new LED shower light was installed with the existing light switch. Check that everything is LED or not.

Would the illumination for this switch be solid if it were to control an outlet?

Answers

Yes, pay attention to the bottom of the rocker switch. It does say "leviton" and on the top of the switch says "TOP" on the metal part. I was given a surprise. I bought 6 of these 5601 and when I finished installing this in the mancave closet - I noticed when I turned it off it was self illuminated with a red glow. It freaked me out at first because I wasn't expecting it, but I kind of like it a lot.. wish I bought the illuminated switch. This was one that was not returned so the mistake was at the factory.. thanks mexico!

The led does not light up on my 3 way. All wiring is correct. Commons and line/load are correct. Help

Dim Backlight. Current Always on.
This controls the lights to my bathroom vanity. They are 2W dimmable LEDs. When the switch is in off position, switch must continue to flow a small current to the fixture because the lights never go fully off. I have to decide now if I lke the nightlight effect or to replace switch.

This unit is used in my sisters kitchen. She really like the illumination and the style. Makes it much easier to see when it gets dark. She lives in a mobile home and this is on a wall that does not get much light, even during the day.

I bought this switch to switch my Christmas lights on outside. When the light switch is off it still allows the lights to be on, but really dim. When the light switch is turned on the lights are on like normal. I switched it out for a normal switch and it works as a light switch should.

I have been installing these in 3 homes now, and I will recommend them any day of the week. First of all, I prefer rocker-style switches to toggles - being able to turn on a light by patting the wall is just a bit more convenient than feeling for the toggle and flipping it. Second, and more important, the illumination on these is great -- the whole rocker glows, making it easy to spot across a dark room (a competing brand's "illuminated" rocker just has a tiny green dot glowing at the top of the switch). The only downside is that the switch mechanism is bulkier than a regular toggle switch, so a single-gang switch box can get cramped . Also, the rocker design makes it more apparent when stiff wiring is pushing asymmetrically on the mechanism (making it tilt to one side or the other). Bottom line is that these will still be my switch of choice for ceiling lights.

This is my preferred "normal" listed switch. It lights the way your expect. The entire top half has a decent, but not to brought orange glow.(they should update this to a whiter light). The lowes and menards in stock versions don't cut it. The Menards in stock has gone t a very tiny very dim green dot at the top of the frame center. Cute, but not very functional unless you wa t very understated illumination. I would like t see t e frame strengthened a bit to reduce flex.

So evidently the folks at Home Depot recognize my expertise in these matters and have personally requested that I provide a review for this product. Aw shucks .... I find that many times reviews are more useful if the actual application the product will be used in is described. In this case, the product will be used to turn on and off the lights in the basement and is intended to replace a similar item previously installed sometime in the early 1960's. That's a lifespan of over 50 years. Wow. Maybe I ought to write a review of the original product. Can't help but wonder if this one will last that long. Hmmmm .... maybe I should have inquired about a maintenance contract. But I digress. The aforementioned product location is at the bottom of a stairway which is less than well lit, hence the choice to go with an illuminated switch. After much careful examination of the available products, this particular device was chosen based on my own rigorous criteria. (Yep, its white). Along with it I selected a cover plate to give the project the truly professional appearance. I suspect I will be asked to write a review about the cover plate at some point, so I will refrain from any further commentary on that subject. After purchasing the items, I carefully placed them in the covered bed of my truck along with other items for protection during the journey home due to the cab of the truck not being certified as a tobacco-free environment. On arrival, I carefully opened the product packaging and removed it. Then as is my habit, I searched the instructions for any necessary software or operating system upgrades that may have been released since the product left the factory. Much to my surprise, there were none. I was quite pleased by this and it meant I could go right ahead and install. I'll leave out exact installation details as my situation may not match yours. Suffice to say, once the appropriate breaker was shut off, the old device was removed and the new one was put into the same location. A simplified diagram is provided should you be interested. After the installation was completed, power was restored via the appropriate circuit breaker. The acid test: does it work? I will spare you any unneeded suspense. It did! Pressing in the top of the switch causes the basement lights to come on. Pressing the bottom of the switch causes them to go off. When the lights are off, the bottom of the switch has a soft orange glow (long-life neon lamp, none of that funky LED junk in this baby). I just called my wife and she verified that the house has not yet burned to the ground due to switch failure, therefore we can conclude that after three entire weeks in service, this product has the guts and stamina to go the long haul. The operational learning curve on this product is fairly typical. Some training may be required, but most people should learn it fairly quickly, especially if supplemental materials can be provided, both paper copies and PowerPoint demonstrations downloadable from the cloud.

Tired of fumbling around in the dark for a light switch? I was and tired of stubbing my toe on anything that could do that job. I purchased this switch and several just like it to replace switches in areas of the house I was tired of feeling for the switch. What a toe and life saver. This switch is just like any switch you install in a box to control lights except when you turn this switch off it has a very small light inside of it that illuminates the large paddle off and on switch. I got the idea from a well known publication that talked about making homes user friendly for ourselves as we get older. The lighted switch seemed like a great idea now and not waiting till I get older. The switch is made of good quality material and is very easy to install. Remember to turn off the power before attempting the installation. With the power off remove the old switch and replace it with the new lighted switch. Turn the power back on and poof you have a lighted switch that is easy to find in the dark. I wish I would have had these when my children were small and still living at home. They serve as a small night light and if they get scared they know right were the switch is to scare away those dreaded night monsters. Could have had more sleep long ago. These are a great addition to any home for safety and security. It could have saved many a toe from getting beat up. They are great and not expensive to replace all of my switches. Remember to be Safe!
