Do you have light-up toggle switches?

Asked by Mark April 5, 2021

Answers

Wall switches with internal lights are available in this design. They are quite handy, especially in poorly lit places in your home. Check with a knowledgeable electrician if you don’t know how to identify three way switches in your circuitry. Both they and single pole are made.

Since it is a single pole switch it can be changed by simply flipping the switch over.

Is the brand name etched on the switch face? If so, is there a version that doesn’t have the name etched on?

Just bought 30 of these switches and indeed the brand is on every one of them. It's not etched, but raised. I returned them because of it.

Is there a dimmer switch available that will match this switch?? If so, which is it.

The plastic cracks after three years
I installed about 30 of these in my home three years ago and had to replace 10 this year because the plastic frame around the switch started cracking. I called Leviton and Leviton would not stand good for them. In fact, Leviton was very rude to me and blamed the problem on cleaning procedures. Therefore, I returned all ten to Home Depot. Please stay away from Leviton switches until they correct the manufacturing defect.

Why add a logo?!?!
I should have read the reviews first, but why would I since I installed like 40 of these a couple years ago.. Most-used switches (bathroom lights) were starting to go, so I bought 2 of the $7 Leviton switches 'cause hey, I make decent money these days, let's splurge on some 'better' switches! (I notice now, those don't have the logo) Those were junk. :( Both felt spongy, one made arcing sounds occasionally as it didn't fully 'snap' on or off.. Ok, so let's go back to the $2 switches, they last 5 years; can replace them 3x for the same cost (minus time). Just finished installing them (in the dark bathroom..) only to discover they added the raised logo on the front of the switch! So they don't match any of the other switches in the house, and my kids' grubby hands are going to leave dirt in the tiny letters.. Awesome. Now to replace them for the 3rd time, if I can find new old stock of the original Leviton switches, or another brand that looks close enough. 5 minute fix is now in the 5 hour category.. Thanks Leviton! 2 stars, 'cause yeah, they do actually turn the lights on and off and don't arc. Time go go dig through the stock in the store and hope for the best. Also typed this up on mobile first, but 'error occurred', typed up on PC with Firefox but "Device FP is a mandatory attribute" error, so trying Chrome for the 3rd attempt.. It's like they don't want you to leave a bad review...

These switches are by far the cheapest junk I have ever purchased in any category I can think of. Within a few days of installation, both switches showed cracking in the outer plastic where the switch itself mounts, causing the switch paddles on both to fall off with a complete switch failure. Two seperate switches did this. While replacing them with MUCH higher quality GE switches in the same design (same price), I also noticed that the main rear body of one switch was cracking on the back near a connection point. Again, BY FAR, the worst quality I have ever seen. Stay clear of these..

I like the smooth look of the screwless switch cover over this standard rocker switch. This was a very easy replacement of a standard single pole switch. There is a small click turning the switch on and off so it is not silent but it is quiet. If you are replacing a standard size switch cover, you shouldn't have the paint chips that I did because I replaced a larger size decorative cover.

Leviton (decora) rocker light switch. This was very easy to install. Turn off your power and disconnect your old switch. My home was built in the 1950's with old noisy switches. The old switch did not have a ground wire, but good heavy cooper wiring. Connected the new switch with the wiring as directed in the directions (less the ground wire). Remounted the switch. Turned the breaker back on and it worked.

Gives an updated look and are easier to turn on because you just push lightly instead of pull up. We painted our crown moulding white and installing all white Decora plates and switches makes everything looks fresh and crisp. Made a huge difference in the room. The 10-pack was economical.

Great product, easy to install. These are a great replacement for the standard white switch. I like that they have this color, as it works great as an accent for a white room with a gray accent wall. I wish that they would not emboss the name Leviton on the surface of the switch itself. I have install a similar white one that seems to collect smudges and dirt on the embossed name.

Before purchasing and starting the install, make sure to understand your home's 3-way switch architecture. How the wires are set up will have an impact on which wires are connected to the common and traveler terminals. Having purchased my house with the three-way switches already in place, it took a large chunk of the effort and time to figure out and verify the wiring architecture for my system, especially by opening up the other switch to verify which wires were the travelers versus the ones going to the lights. Once I verified the wiring architecture, the install probably took approximately 30-40 minutes (2 switches: Leviton rocker switches with and without dimmer), primarily to install and repack the stiff wires neatly. DON'T FORGET TO SHUT OFF THE BREAKER FOR THE SWITCH; THIS IS A FATAL SAFETY PREVENTATIVE! Once installed, the products worked well. The switch without the dimmer is an easy on/off with a solid click to ensure it is firmly in the on or off position. The switch with the dimmer worked just the same with the added benefit of a vertically sliding dimmer on the right hand side, which worked great. In addition, I received the matching switch plate coverings, which look very crisp and modern. However, my setup includes 3 switches including a variable fan switch so I couldn't install the switch plates. I have ordered the right part from Leviton so I expect it will look great when it arrives. One caveat I have with this specific model is that the gray doesn't match perfectly with my family room. It doesn't look bad but I would recommend planning out your color coordination to make sure you get the right color switch.
