Only some LED lights are designed to work with a dimmer. Check with the lamp manufacturer. If the LED lamp contains an internal transformer, the Leviton 6793 says it can't be used.

Look at product number again to see if numbers posted are correct.
Also include what type of device this is: rotary dimmer? slide dimmer? touch dimmer? Switch? single-pole application or 3-way? And include what you are replacing.

Locator Light not working on leviton 6633-pl

6633-pl is single-pole and 3-way dimmer made for max 600 watt incandescent or halogen load. This dimmer does not work for CFL or inductive loads such as motor.

I have no idea what a 'locator light' is?? Do you mean the LED indicator that shows when power is connected?

Troubleshoot section of manual does not show any solution for LED malfunction.

It's not quite that simple..

According to the manual for your switch, it is stated "Use with magnetic low-voltage transformers, incandescent, or 120V halogen fixtures only." Also, there is a minimum load of 40W or 40VA. Your LED lamp load will need to satisfy BOTH of these requirements. Electronic circuits are not to be "dimmed" with this dimmer - but use of either the VZE04-1L (400W max) or VZE06-1L (600W max) is supported.

You will need to provide the manufacturer and model number of the LED lamp(s) to be dimmed by this switch. Or, you can use traditional dimmers (if desired) with LED lamps that are specifically labeled as "dimmable" on their packaging.

Once the lamp model is known it will be possible to learn about their dimability assuming that they are not cheap imports with no real customer support contacts. Name brand lamps will have this support, and you can even call them yourself and inquire directly about the suitability to task for the dimmer. If the lam company doesn't know about the switch, contact Leviton with the lamp info at Customer Service: 1-800-323-8920 • FAX: 1-800-832-9538 Tech Line: 1-800-824-3005

Good luck!

I replaced my old 3way toggle switches with the LEviton 5613 3way lighted rocker switches. Wired exactly the way the older toggle switches were wired. Switches work fine just like the older ones but one...§ion=10103&minisite=10025
The Leviton page for Leviton 5613 does not have a troubleshoot.
Manual shows simple wiring diagram.
3-way switches will not operate lights if switches are wired incorrectly.
Check your ground wire is connected.
Leviton 5613 series is illuminated.
Check that both switches have 5613 number.
Swap switches and see if problem is inside switch.

How does it work?

By decreasing or increasing the RMS voltage and hence the mean power to the lamp it is possible to vary the intensity of the light output. Although variable-voltage devices are used for various purposes, the term dimmer is generally reserved for those intended to control lighting.
