Does Leviton offer a companion 3-way rocker switch with the same locator light style (green)? Basically, same switch but without the dimmer.

Asked by Jason February 11, 2021

Answer

I’m going to say No on this. I did my entire home in Leviton Decora switches and outlets and never came across what you are describing. At least, I never saw one at Home Depot. That being said, a quick call to Leviton directly should provide the answer.

The indicator light has a switch underneath the plastic switch cover. When in the on position, the indicator light is on with the light switch off and off with the light switch on.

Does this dimmer work with halo recessed light

Asked by SS June 7, 2020
2
Answers

The ability to use a dimmer is not necessarily related to the type of light fixture but rather to the type of bulb being used. If the bulb is labeled as being able to be dimmed than it should be no problem. Most of the older ncandescent bulbs and halogens were dimmable but fluorescent bulbs (CFL, tube) were often not. Please read the labels on the bulbs. LEDs can vary.

Can I use this dimmer switch with Commercial Electric LED Color Changing Recessed Trim (1002 936 ...

Asked by BobK April 13, 2020

Answers

I'm not sure. I used 3 of them. 2 for hanging fixtures, the other for recessed lights in my kitchen. They were easy to install and work great. I'm somewhat uncertain because your trim is commercial. As long as they are not over 600 watts, they should be fine. You can always return them. If each of your lights is controlled by different switches, you'll need 2 dimmers. I hope this helps. Good luck.

8 LED can Lights are on two switches and wondering if I can install this in place of one of them?

Asked by DOL October 24, 2019

Answers

Yes. Your present switches are presumably 3-way switches. You can replace one of these with this 3-way dimmer and it should work fine, assuming that all bulbs involved are “dimmable”.

Compatible with4 inch trim

Asked by Olah September 23, 2019

Answers

Not sure that I understand the question. If you’re asking if it will fit in a 4” wide space, the answer is yes. If you’re asking if it will fit in a 4” deep wall space, the answer is yes. If you are trying to mount it in a 4” wide piece of trim, it will fit but, unless the trim is flat, the trim plate over the switch will obviously not be snug against the wall.

Will this dimmer switch work on halogen track lighting?

Asked by Hammerhead April 1, 2019
4
Answers

I would suspect that the answer is yes. You can’t dim fluorescent lightings but halogens should be fine as long as the total wattage of all the lights does not exceed the rating on the dimmer. I control six indoor incandescent flood lights off one of these 3-way switches.

My Leviton DSL06 dimmer switch flickers. What can I do to stop the flickering?

Asked by Snow February 7, 2019
8
Answers

If you are using dimmable LED lights and you have flickering when you try to dim lights, you need to increase minimum lighting level. See Installation Sheet Troubleshooting section and Programming Section. The selector switch has an optional programming mode. The programming mode option is used to change the factory settings for minimum light level. For example, the dimmer settings can be changed to eliminate any noticeable flicker or users can re-calibrate the pre-set to ensure the bulb starts at the lowest light level. The factory setting may be too low for your bulbs. It only took me 3 years to figure this out ;-)

I have total 25 of 10W led recessed lights. and typical rutron dimmer sw is buzzing now.

I can not answer this 100%. Some light fixtures do not work properly with some LED bulbs with dimmer switch. I don't think the wattage is the issue. There is a special LED bulb that is suppose to work with dimmer switches but I am not sure this is the answer.

I previously bought 2 Leviton Diva dinner switches. One broke on the frame and the other stopped working - would not switch on and off. They were less than 3 years old. These seem to be a bit more robust. They don’t dim all the way off when dimmed at the lowest setting. Not a big deal - guess that’s what a dimmer switch does. Seems to work with the LED chandelier well that we bought from Home Depot as well.

This Leviton dimmer works as well as all of the Leviton dimmers I have. No buzz or flicker. Just alway make sure you have a good ground as that is what appears to always fix any buzz or flicker I run into. The main difference with this dimmer is the color. It is light grey. I use this color in my garage workshop as it looks a little more industrial. Just so you can see the color difference I put it in a white outlet cover for the picture.

I have bought Leviton 300-Watt Decora Slide Dimmer for Dimmable LED 600-Watt Incandescent/Halogen, Light Gray, White/Ivory/Light Almond, to use fr my new LED light that I have installed all over my house. This was the right choice as it's work great and looks great. It is easy to install it as all the instruction are included, and it is also work great with my 3 way switch.

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.

I like that the slide dimmer is separate from the on and off so if you like your lighting at a particular level once you set it, it be at that level every time you turn the lights on. I am old school and do not like using the "Quick Wire Push-in" as I just do not believe it is a good secure positive connection and like this dimmer did not have it. It has a screw clamp that securely holds the wire with a good positive connection. Terminals are clearly identified for easy single pole or 3-way installation. The hidden screw face place makes for a neat appearance.

LEVITON 300-WATT DECORA SLIDE DIMMER FOR DIMMABLE LED 600-WATT INCANDESCENT/HALOGEN, LIGHT GRAY This was an interesting experience. We installed a new fixture in a bedroom a while ago and agreed that it was too bright. When the opportunity came to review this dimmer, I jumped at the chance, we both remembered that the fixture came with dimmable LED bulbs. Well, we were wrong. I can tell you that non-dimmable LEDs do not like dimmer switches. I replaced the bulbs with dimmable bulbs and we now have the desired effect. When our Daughter and son-in-law come for a visit, we won’t blind them. The switch is quite large so I wrapped electrical tape around it for a little added safety before installing it in the existing small switch box. The screw less wall plate looks nice but was difficult to install, the screws used to install the mounting plate were very short which made them difficult to get lined up. When installing the mounting leave the first screw very lose until the second one is started then tighten both. An additional 1/8-inch longer screw would solve this.

This dimmer is great. It can be used in a single switch installation as well as a two switch installation. Chances are this dimmer will work in your installation. I am using it to control some recessed lighting. It's nice that a dimming level can be preset on the slide and then the lights switched on and off without affecting the preset level. This dimmer fit into the box easily during installation. The gray color is on trend right now and my teenage daughter is happy with the look.

I installed this Leviton decora sliding dimmer switch in my home office after I updated the room lighting to LED lights and it then became overpoweringly bright. I loved the “cool” 5K look of the light but needed a dimmer to adjust the light output. I installed this light switch with little knowledge of electrical it was that easy. It works great and in the gray color it matches my gray walls almost perfect! I have Leviton throughout my whole house!

This dimmable switch operates the kitchen dimmable fluorescent light fixture which is very bright early in the morning when you just climbed out of bed. The Leviton dimmable switch will be a perfect solution for that scenario. Installation was a snap with the new Leviton package with a snap on face plate that leaves you with a smooth cover plate and no screws. The switch in the middle is a 3 way switch for the pantry and the switch on the right is a regular on off for over the breakfast room table. The cover plate is two pieces, first you screw the lower cover plate onto the three switches and it spaces everything properly and then the top cover just pops onto the lower plate so everything ends up smooth.

Response from levitonProductExpertDec 20, 2019
Leviton sincerely regrets that you are having issues with your Decora Slide Dimmer. Please note that the DSL06 incorporates a programmable minimum adjustment. This minimum adjustment can be used to raise or lower the minimum light level for optimal dimming performance. Some bulbs have the ability to dim lower than the default setting, and the minimum level can be lowered to improve the dimming range. You can also find a list of compatible LED bulbs & fixtures within the “Technical Specification” Section of the Product Page, or on our new LED Compatibility tool. We’d like to know more about your specific installation and the problem you encountered. Please send an email to ebusiness@leviton.com with your phone number and the best times to call, and we will have a technical support specialist call you to get some additional information and offer assistance.
