Not an adapter. You need a voltage converter to convert 220Vac to 120VAc.

Add an in-line lamp cord switch. It's very simple. 3b9e323f-684e-4eba-929a-dedcd83751f4.jpg

Where is the switch located? If you buy a replacement switch at Home Depot it usually comes with a diagram that shows you how to wire it. If the switch is built into the light socket just replace the socket the switch is included.

Haha...with a new one! No kidding, these dimmer switches are sometimes junk. First of all, make sure that you have the right lamps in each socket - and the wattage is lower than the rating on the dimmer. Otherwise, try a new dimmer switch. Let me know if you need further help. Dimmer switches are a little temperamental, so sometimes you get a bad one in the bunch. The load might be near the maximum rating, so they tend to go out sooner. But then there's others that last for a long time. Try this first, and if you need further assistance, feel free to check back with me. Best of Luck to You! Jim

It sounds like the problem is in your light. Leave your circuit breaker in the OFF position, as well as, the light switch. Then, take down the light, or lights...and check out each connection in the light box. It's best to do one at a time, this way you can go by process of elimination. If there's a lot of lights working off this switch. You can disconnect all the lights from the middle of the room. Put wirenuts on all the bare wires, and then try and see if your lights come on without tripping the circuit. If it trips, then you know the problem is further down the line. I'm going to assume there's only one or two lights, so take them down and check the splices (connections). It seems like you have a loose wire at one of the lights. Please feel free to check back with me if you have any further questions. Good Luck! - Jim

It picks up movement, and that triggers an internal switch (computer board) to turn light on. If this is attached to a regular light switch, leave the light switch in the ON position. After a few minutes (depending on what you set the time at), the light will go off. Sometimes, people aren't big fans of these switches - because if they are in a room, and there's no activity (eg. working on the computer, reading a book, etc.) - the light will automatically go off. Then, you have to wave your hand - or get up and move - in order to get it to turn back on. So, setting the sensitivity levels, and time intervals are important in relation to the use. Hope this helps! Feel free to ask more question's if you'd like - and I'll answer you as soon as I'm able too...Jim

What type of switch and what are you connecting it to?? Need more information.

Leviton... | Answered on Apr 30, 2014


I believe it is cheaper just to replace it then try to get the parts!

You may be able to take it apart and salvage it by using what is leftr of the old pull chain but I am not sure.

I need to ask you for a bit more information. Ordinarily a socket for a 3-way lamp has two external connections, one of which goes to power (black is the standard color) and one which connects to the neutral wire (white is the standard color). The other wire commonly encountered in house wiring is green, which is a ground connection. Lamps normally do not use a ground. The Levitron web page does not flag this socket to be anything out of the ordinary, but neither do they show the connections.

So please provide any additional information that you can on this socket. Is it meant to hold a single, 3-way incandescent bulb, or is it for a florescent bulb? Is it meant for a special purpose?
