New installation of Luton tg603pg dimmer - lights
No problem, merely a misunderstanding. That's actually the point of that product (the 'g' in the model number was the clue). This is their "eco-dim" line of products, and its specifically designed to not let the lights go over 85% light level. Its a means of using the dimmer to help guarantee energy savings and lamp life extension.
If this bothers you, then I would return it and grab one that doesn't have the "g" in the model number.

When I press on the dimmer switch, it made a noise
I answer questions for free.
I specialize in timers and electrical devices.
There are not replacement parts for electrical wall devices.
You can pull out the device and see if there is a loose wire that caused the pop.
But today's dimmers are electronic, and if there is a pop, I bet the circuit board inside the dimmer has been ruined.
If you need more help, add a comment and I will respond.

Light in one sections will not go on with the
I answer questions for free.
I know electric wiring and can help.
But you need a better explanation.
What are you doing?
Did you replace something.
What device did you put in?
Is this a 3-way device at one end of a hall?
And I'm a little unclear about " all house lights on light the hall but all off will not turn off the lights'

I have installed the master
please make sure :
- the button cell powering the CMOS data is still in shape
- you have activated both of the IDE channels
in the BIOS and set the drive detection to auto, then ensure the power
plug is inserted correctly and the power supply has enough power (above 250 W) to support all of the drives (including the CD or DVD drive, this can easily amount up to four drives! plus the extra supply for the graphic card fan.., some AGP cards need extra power to run).
try several reboots, as it may take a while for the hardware to detect the drives
- if this still does not work, use a CD or DVD drive as master device
(see jumper settings in the back of it) and hook up the slave disk to it,
set detection to auto again, save settings , reboot.Then hook up second drive as single to the 2nd IDE channel.
You may be lucky now!
Good luck to you

How do I fix my light switch? I checked my circuit breaker and that's working. I replaced the switch with a new switch and it still doesn't work.
You might look to see if the outlet is GFI protected. It is possible the GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) tripped and needs to be reset.
If so, push the red button (reset button) firmly until it stays down (pushed in). If it does not stay closed, replace it.
Also check your light bulb fed by "the switch that does not work", to make sure it did not burn out.
Your switch could be good, but the bulb bad.
If your light switch is not on a GFI circuit and both Lutron switches are fed by one breaker, get a volt-ohm meter, set it to the volts in a voltage range to read house hold voltage (around 121 volts), and check to see that both switches are receiving 121 volts. Usually you measure with the black probe touching a white (neutral) wire, while the black wire is usually the wire that is in series with the lamp. A black wire may come into the switch and leave as a black wire going to the bulb. If you do not have full voltage reaching your switch, you may have a wiring problem where a wire is no longer making good contact. If you are not sure about how to test with a volt meter, search on your tube for further explanations on how to test to see if a light switch is good.

First, I have power running thru a switch box. All
Let's start at the beginning please. You have a source cable fed into an overhead outlet box or to a switch outlet box on the wall? This is critical because it tells me what kind of arrangement you actually have.
If the source is in the ceiling, then you are using switch loops and the wiring gets tricky because you have to "re-task" the Neutral (White) wire (Assuming you are here in the U.S.A.) that goes to the switch because it will become the feed to the wall switch.
However, is the feed is at the switch, then it is much simpler. Please let me know what you have in the form of wiring.
Also as an FYI, if you are using special switches, you may have to have equipment grounding conductor present at the switch. The electrical code no longer allows the use of a Neutral (White) conductor as a grounding conductor.

Hmmm a lot of rope lights are just mini xmass tree lights inside a plastic tube. If one of the bulbs burns out for that section the it takes the whole section out. Sounds like it's time for a new led rope light.
