dimmer switch

sboricicAugust 24, 2012

I picked up a used dimmer switch that didn't come with instructions. It has 2 red, 1 green and 1 black wire. How do I connect this and which wire is supposed to lead to what? Thanks.

What manufacturer? What model? Is it line voltage or low voltage? Florescent or incandescent? Electronic or resistive?

Manufacturer is Leviton. It didn't come with any packaging so I'm not sure voltage, model or type it is.

What you have is a 3-way dimmer switch. The wiring diagrams are available on-line if you do a search. The green wire goes to ground, and the black to the hot supply. If you're using this in a 3-way mode, the two reds to go the other 3-way switch. In a single switch mode, one of the reds goes to the fixture, and the other red should be capped off and not connected to anything.
