You may want to consider getting an "electronic" dimmer vs. a manual knob or slider. Consider using a Maestro (MA-600-XX where XX is the color). The Maestro fits into a decora opening so you may also want to get a new wallplate (Lutron makes these in a screwless version: CW-1-XX where XX is the color).
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Lutron Dimmer Not Dimming But On/Off Works

The type of track heads you are using could be creating the problem. Are the lamps Par 20, Par 30 (screw in base) or MR-16 low voltage (push in base)? If the track head has a small (2"x4") box and uses MR-16 lamps then you need to use a dimmer specifically designed for ELECTRONIC LOW VOLTAGE. Incandescent lights (screw in base) and Electronic low voltage need a different signal to dim. Using a standard dimmer for electronic low voltage will work for a while, but then either the dimmer or the fixtures will go bad. If your lamps are incandescent or halogen you may have just had a bad dimmer. (Not common for Lutron products) but the part number you list should be good for 1000watts and should not be the issue.

Please see "Dimming Basics" under the helpful information tab for a better explanations of the two different styles of dimming. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: Dimmer won't dim or turn off

Hello Justin, The dimmer you are having the problem with is very likely defective and should be replaced. If you still have the receipt and purchased it within the past 30-90 days from either Lowe's or Home Depot, they will allow a return for full credit and you can get a new one.

If you got this from another store, again, the receipt will be key in getting your money refunded and a new replacement.

Since many manufacturers have started to use more offshore facilities for making their products, there has been an increased amount of faulty or defective units, but the good news is that the prices have remained reasonable and the manufacturers are willing to replace defective products since they know of the quality issues.

If you don't have a receipt, hopefully you charged it on a credit card, so the big box stores can find it using your credit card data.

As an electrician, I've experienced more and more defective dimmers in the past several years, so much so that I typically get a couple of extras for each home I'm wiring. Just remember to tell the returns person that the unit didn't work so they can RTV (return to vendor) the dimmer for quality tracking, etc.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

SOURCE: I am trying to install two Lutron dimmers in the

My first thought is that if you were using these devices to replace existing light switches, the MA-S8AM has an additional electrical connection that wasn't necessary with a light switch or the MA-600. The MA-S8AM has an addtional screw on it (I think its silver in color) that connects to the neutral wire in the circuit. Hopefully you have a bunch of white wires all wire-nutted together in the back of the box - pull a connection from there and attach.

If that's not the issue, then I would call Lutron's tech support. They're available 24/7, so you may as well. They're at 1-800-523-9466.

SOURCE: I have a lutron skylark

It is neither - it is rated for incandescent lamps only. It sounds like someone suggested that your puck ligths are being controlled by electronic low-voltage transformers, in which case, if you wanted to stick to the Skylark family, should be an SELV-300P-WH.

If you're not sure about any of this, I suggest calling Lutron's tech support line. It's at 1-800-523-9466, they're available 24/7, and can double-check the recommendation.
