Multigang Installations
When installing more than one control in the same wallbox, it may be necessary to remove all inner
side sections prior to wiring (see below). Using pliers, bend side sections up and down until they
break off. Repeat for each side section to be removed. Note: Product does not require derating
when side sections are removed.

Caution: To avoid overheating and possible damage to other equipment, do not use to control
receptacles, lighting fixtures, transformer-supplied appliances, solid state fan motors, or
exhaust fans. For exhaust fans use Lutron fully variable fan speed controls.
Install in accordance with all national and local electrical codes.
When no “grounding means” exist within the wallbox then the NEC® 2002, Article 404-9 allows
a wall control without a grounding connection to be installed as a replacement, as long as a
plastic, noncombustible wallplate is used. For this type of installation, cap or remove the green
ground wire on the wall control and use an appropriate wallplate such as Lutron’s Claro® or
Satin ColorsTM series wallplates.
The Maestro® fan speed control system consists of a Wall Control, one to four Canopy
Modules, and up to two Accessory Controls. All must be installed correctly before attempting
to control the fans. Do not attempt to mix Lutron controls with those from other manufacturers,
or mix Lutron controls not labeled for use together.
This system is not compatible with fans having a control system built into the motor.
Do not paint Wall Control, Canopy Module, or Accessory Control.
Maestro Controls are not compatible with standard 3-way/4-way switches.
Accessory Controls (MA-AFQ4) cannot be used individually and must be used in conjunction
with a Maestro Wall Control (MA-FQ4M) in a 3-way/4-way application.
In any 3-way/4-way circuit use only one Wall Control (MA-FQ4M) with up to 2 Accessory
Controls (MA-AFQ4).
Operate between 32 °F (0 °C) and 104 °F (40 °C) room temperature. For indoor use only.
Wall Control and Accessory Controls may feel warm to the touch during normal operation.
Recommended wallbox depth is 2.5" (64 mm) minimum.
Clean controls with a soft damp cloth only. Do not use any chemical cleaners.
This system cannot be used to change the direction of the fan. To change the fan direction,
stop the fan, and then change the position of the switch located on the body of the fan.
Do not use pull chains to operate fan(s) after installing this system.
Each Canopy Module must be installed within a fan canopy enclosure.
This device complies with Part 15 of the FCC Rules. Operation is subject to the following two
conditions: (1) this device may not cause harmful interference, and (2) this device must accept
any interference received, including interference that may cause undesired operation.

as described in Step 15.
• Wiring error, call Lutron Technical Support
Center at +1-800-523-9466.
• Communication error. Check wiring; if error
continues, call Lutron Technical Support
Center at +1-800-523-9466.
• Fan blades not properly balanced. See fan
manufacturer's instructions.
• Fan pull chain not set to high.
• Fan pull chain not set to high.

NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B digital
device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable
protection against harmful interference in a residential installation. This equipment generates, uses
and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the
instructions, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no
guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause
harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning the
equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of
the following measures:
- Reorient or relocate the receiving antenna.
- Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver.
- Connect the equipment into an outlet on a circuit different from that to which the receiver is
connected.
- Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
Important Wiring Information
When making wire connections, follow the recommended strip lengths and combinations for the supplied wire
connectors (see wire connector bag). Note: All wire connectors provided are suitable for copper wire only. For
aluminum wire, consult an electrician.
Wire Connectors:
Use to join 14 AWG or 12 AWG ground wire to 18 AWG Wall Control
ground wire, and to join 18 AWG Canopy Module wire to 12, 14, 16
or 18 AWG wire.
