will this switch control 2 ceiling fans

Asked by JV November 16, 2020
2
Answers

The MACL-LFQ is rated to control a single ceiling fan up to 1.5 amps with pull chains. Lutron would recommend splitting the fan to two individual controls instead. For additional assistance, please reach out to our Support Team at support@Lutron.com or by phone at 1 (844) 588-7661.

Asked by Jacob October 28, 2020

Answers

The MACL-LFQ-WH is designed to control a standard 3-speed ceiling fan which only utilizes pull-chains to adjust its speeds. A fan that includes its own remote or wall control typically uses a proprietary control technology and would likely be incompatible with a third-party fan speed control. As always, Lutron would suggest reaching out to your fan manufacturer to verify if this control would be compatible with their fan.

Sounds like you are using a non dimmable led bulb in the fixture. Change it out for an led bulb that is dimmable, don't skimp on its costs as you'll do it once and not bother with it for the next 15 years!

Can I use this with my bathroom exhaust fan that has a DIMMABLE LED LIGHT? Is it offered in BLACK?

Asked by YHWHYIREH September 16, 2020

Answers

The MACL-LFQ- is a single pole dual load control. The top button is capable of dimming up to 75 watts of LED or 250 watts of incandescent/halogen, and the bottom button is rated for up to 1.5 amps for a single fan. Lutron recommends this control for a single ceiling fan with pull chains. For more information, please visit https://www.lutron.com/TechnicalDocumentLibrary/3691057.pdf

Asked by HandyManRob August 27, 2020

Answer

The MACL-LFQ is not a smart device and therefore cannot be paired to a Pico remote. Instead, Lutron recommends the PD-FSQN and PD-6WCL. The PD-FSQN is designed for fan control and the PD-6WCL is for lighting control. These could be operated either within the Lutron app (Smart Bridge required) or through two separate Pico remotes.

Great Switch but VERY Bright
Love the switch functions. Love having separate controls for both the fan and light. But I'm light sensitive and it drives me nuts how bright the switch is at night. My electrician installed it and the idea seemed great until it was time to sleep. Take out the LED lights and this would easily be 5 stars. (Pic is without any flash. Does not do the brightness justice.)

I had my electrician put this in my bedroom for my new ceiling fan. It works great. I love that I can dim my light on my ceiling fan as well as adjust the speeds from the wall switch. Also, it has tiny little green lights on it so you can see where it is in the dark.

Installation was easy. Do your research by safely taking out and looking at your existing light switch to make sure you buy the correct controller. However, the ability to program a pre-set level for the lights, so that when you press the button to turn on the lights it turns at that brightness without escalating through the dimmer, does not work as spelled out in the manual.

Used to replace single switch in single gang box (didn't want to tear up wall to replace with two-gang box). Now allows for dimming of fan light in addition to changing fan speed (without having to use chains or remote). Works very well with no humming. Using 60W equivalent GE fan bulbs (2) (daylight) in a Hunter Granville fan with light fixture. No tuning was needed straight out of the box. Like the other dimming switches in the line, a faint green LED shows by each control to show the level of dimming. Not as thrilled with the switch plate (that you also have to buy separately).

I wanted to replace the double switch that controls the light and fan (just on/off) with something that could control the fan speed from the wall. They don't seem to make one that just turns the light on/on with a fan control anymore and when I looked around, I liked the features on this unit. The only drawback is the price. But this switch does it all - dims the lights and controls the fan speed. Home Depot only has this in WHITE and I really wanted IVORY but the white worked ok in my room and the location. If you want another color, you will have to find an on-line place to order it. Installation was a snap - take your time to read the instructions, view the video on here. It took me long to get the gosh darn thing shoe horned into the wall as it's a bigger unit than was in there before. So while you're at it, I'd go with the nicer wall plate (yes, that doesn't come with it) where there are no screws. Makes it cleaner looking and just a few bucks more. And if you want more "programming" features, go to the LUTRON web page and search for the Application Note #669. I called them to find out about this. You can re-program the switch to change some timing things.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
As an electrical contractor of 30 years, Lutron has always been my top choice for dimmers, offering pro-grade quality combined with very stylish appearance. This device requires that your lighted ceiling fan was wired with 3-wire, to allow for control of the light and the fan separately. So, good for replacement of an existing combination fan / light control, or for new installations wired with 3-wire. The body of this device is almost 1-3/4" deep, so you will need to have an adequately-deep device (switch) box, as well as adequate free space inside that box to neatly fold in all of the wire-nutted conductors. Please do not shoehorn this unit into an overloaded box. This Lutron Maestro control is very stylish, and offers nice features. The unit is made in China.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I'm very disappointed with this Maestro Fan/Light Switch. I was very excited when I began installation, the old dimmers were not working well and I was glad to be replacing them. I did the install (very easy) and turned the juice back on. It worked like a dream. All of the functions were working properly and I was happy. After about 3 or 4 minutes, the light and fan turned off and all of the green indicator lights started blinking. I spent the next two hours trying to figure out what went wrong. I couldn't. I went to Lutron's website...no help. I went to several other sites to no avail. I removed the switch and put in new single pole switches that I had in the shop. They worked fine. I left them in place for a few days but I couldn't just leave it alone and move on because the cool new dimmer didn't work and I really wanted it to and I felt defeated. I decided to start from scratch and re-install it, just in case I had done something wrong and kept overlooking it. Again, very easy install and hurrah, it worked properly. Once again, I put it through all of the tests to make sure it was working properly and it did. Then, once again, after a couple of minutes it quit working again and the green indicator lights started flashing. I spent another hour or so trying to diagnose it again and got frustrated again. I was able to figure out that flashing green indicator lights is a bad thing but still, I don't know what went wrong. The only thing I can figure is it over-heated. This is the second Lutron dimmer switch I have installed and the first one didn't work properly either. Several months ago, I bought one for a new LED chandelier because it was supposed to work with the kind of bulbs I had. I never could get it to work.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
I was tired of having to use a pull chain to control the speed of my fan, so I looked for a better solution. Before getting this controller, I pulled my existing double switch off the wall to check the available wiring. VERY IMPORTANT, you need to have your existing switch wired properly in order to use this fan/light control. From your fan you need to have three wires (Fan, Light, Hot) going back to the switch otherwise this control will not work. In the instructions it has the wires as yellow - fan and red - light, but the wires I had were not those colors. In order to install this controller, you need to turn on your light and turn the fan on the highest setting and then turn the power off at the circuit breaker. Thankfully I was replacing an existing switch, but if you were doing a brand new install, you would need a double switch to do this prior to installing this controller. I really like the feel of this switch and it is very responsive. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow.

By far one of the best ceiling fan speed control with added bonus to dim the fan's lights. My Hunter fan comes with an AC motor, so it worked perfectly with the LUTRON Maestro fan control. (NOT for DC motor fans). Wiring the switch was straightforward, just GROUND lug, LINE-IN (black wire), FAN-OUT (yellow wire) and LIGHT-OUT (red wire). Each step in the light dimmer is indicated by a green LED on the switch. Four (4) LED indicators for each of the motor speeds. Gone was the annoying hum of my old dimmer and fan control. I never knew it could be so quiet when the fan was set to a low speed! The dimmer works perfectly with my LED lights in the ceiling fan fixture. (I made sure I bought dim-able LED bulbs). I also love the fact each returns to its last setting when turned back on. Now I can remove the chains from the fan and light switch.
