Answer This Question

A:  Hello James, thank you for your question. The fan portion of the Maestro model MACL-LFQ can only be used with a multi-speed ceiling paddle-style fan and not an exhaust fan. See the below spec sheet for more information: https://assets.lutron.com/a/documents/3691057.pdf We hope this helps! If you require further assistance, our 24/7 support team is here to help. We can be reached at 1-844-LUTRON1 or via email at support@lutron.com.

    A:  No, the motor in a bathroom exhaust fan is not meant to have the speed adjusted.  Even if you don’t plan on adjusting the speed, it could still potentially hurt the life of the motor.

      Q:Is the MACL-LFQ a usable replacement for the MA-LFQ35?
      by|Jan 4, 2023
      3 Answers
      Answer This Question

      A:  Hello! The MA-LFQ35 utilizes a Canopy Module which will need to be removed and an additional wire will need to be run down to the MACL-LFQ in order to control your fan and light separately. You can view more information about how the MACL-LFQ works in the specification sheet here: https://assets.lutron.com/a/documents/3691057.pdf If you still have questions or concerns, please give us a call at 1-844-LUTRON1. We're here 24/7, so you can reach out anytime, day or night.

        A:  Check the specs. Search online. Contact mfr

        by|Jan 9, 2023

          A:  Not as a direct replacement. I looked up the MA-LFQ35 and it uses a single power line running from the switch to the fan. There is a companion module at the fan that receives a digital signal from the switch then controls the fan & light separately. The MACL-LFQ uses 2 power wires from the switch to the fan, 1 for the fan and 1 for the light. There is no companion module at the fan.

              Q:Can this replace the harbor breeze ceiling fan wall switch.
              by|Dec 20, 2022
              1 Answer
              Answer This Question

              A:  Hello Kevin, thank you for your question. The Maestro Fan Control model MACL-LFQ is designed to control a standard ceiling fan which only uses pull-chains to adjust its speeds. A fan that has its own remote or wall control typically uses a proprietary control technology and would likely be incompatible with a third-party fan speed control such a ours. We suggest you reach out to the fan manufacturer to verify if this Lutron control would be compatible with their fan. We hope this helps! If you have additional questions, please reach out to our 24/7 Support Team at support@lutron.com or give us a call at 1-844-LUTRON1.

                Great Buy!
                If you are fortunate enough to have 3 wires for the fan control, (or if you plan ahead for the switch), you won't be disappointed! Happy to spend the extra money for a quality product.

                Works Beautifully!
                This was a 15 minute install, just make sure you have the correct wires. Please read the instructions even if you are a Pro because you are supposed to calibrate the dimmer if you are using LEDs or CFLs.

                  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.

                      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.

                      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.
