Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This dimmer REQUIRES a neutral wire. It's not documented here at Amazon (that I could find) and the official Leviton website has conflicting information about neutral wire requirements of the Renu Universal dimmer switch.
My kitchen switch gangboxes do not have neutral wires. I had a qualified electrician doing some electrical work for our remodel and he never could get the dimmer to funtion with either LED or incandescent bulbs. All of the other replacement switches and outlets in the area are Renu and they look great and are easy to install. The Renu Universal dimmer switch had to be replaced by another brand of dimmer that does not require a neutral.
I like the look and feel of the Leviton Renu line and was very disappointed that this dimmer would not work in my slightly older home. I recommend the Renu line, just not the Universal dimmer unless you KNOW you have a neutral wire at the switch location.
Yes this requires a neutral, it has a light and electronics in side it and needs it to run them to dim the LEDs. This is a large switch, about the size of a GFCI, use it in a deep box. This didn't fit my old metal jbox with a mudring on it, I had to replace it because it hit a tab on the second layer of the jbox. I also couldn't find it in any colors, I had to buy this, and a color change plate. This doesn't fit the Lutron line, it fits the Renu line. You can buy an adapter to fit a Lutron in a Renu, I don't think it goes the other way though. This is a 'universal' dimmer because it dims LEDs, incandescent and magnetic lights, not because it fits either style wall plate.
Everything installed easily enough besides it being too big for my box.
I am satisfied with how dim it gets the lights. The lights buzz, which I believe is unavoidable, or more their fault than the switch. The lights all got transformers and power supplies in them. they...
Installed with six LED lights. This switch does not dim completely. The settings for min/max are a joke; it just makes a small percentage of a change.
