Leviton Electrical Supplies - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


If I understand you correctly, your hot lead should attach to 1 switch and a common wire goes from that switch to the other switch. Here's a link to a good explanation of 2 way switch wiring. Essentially you run power to one switch, and that same switch sends power via 1 of 2 other wires to the second switch. The light (or other device) is then connected to the second switch. Hopefully the diagrams in the following link will help you. In any case you need 3 wires at each switch. Good luck!

You cannot use standard electronic dimmer switches with CFL bulbs, only incandesant bulbs! That is why you are getting the flickering.

With CFL's bulbs installed in a light fixture that has a non-flouresant rated dimmer switch on that circuit, you will cause the standard dimmer to fail.

You have to look at the dimmer package (sometimes printed on the back of the dimmer itself too) to see if it can be used with CFL bulbs,as many are not rated for use with anything other than standard incandesant bulbs.


Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

Yes, but appears to be non-serviceable... and its probably just a 3.2vdc lithium coin battery inside the case yet they decided to make it so you have to buy a replacement every 10+yrs. Crack it open and see (dill off any rivet heads).

I think you have your wires connected to wrong screw.

Wiring devices have screws that are color-coded as you noticed.
The Hot wire from breaker connects to dark colored screw(s).
The wires to Load (ceiling light-outdoor light) connect to brass screws.

If you need more help, add a comment at bottom and I will help further

red never connects to black as that is power to neutral if wired correctly
get in a qualified electrician to check the wiring and help you install the unit

most if not all these padlocks when first manufactured the manufactures has to set it with some digits if it four digits lock , manufacture use eg., 0000 or 1234 and if it six digits it uses 000000 or 123456 and so on the idea is that when the lock is first bought it comes with these digits then by following their instruction you can change the code you wish to have

yes, take the white wires off the switches and splice them all together with a wire nut. Run a hot wire to each of the switches and then run the switch leg (black) from each of the fixtures to be controlled to each of the dimmers.

How many wires are on the dimmer switch and what
colors are they ? How many wires were attached to the old switch ?

If the two load screws are connected with a tab that is the power in side. The color wires are the load.

Seems to be a common problem, you're not alone ( read amazon 1 star reviews). They are $22.00 so you will to dispose of it, if
