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, fluorescent or neon 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®
series wallplates.
The Maestro® dual fan/light control system consists of a Wall Control, a Canopy Module, and
up to two Accessory Controls. All must be installed correctly before attempting to control the
fan/light fixture. 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-ALFQ35) cannot be used individually and must be used in conjunction
with a Maestro Wall Control (MA-LFQ35M) in a 3-way/4-way application.
In any 3-way/4-way circuit use only one Wall Control (MA-LFQ35M)with up to 2 Accessory
Controls (MA-ALFQ35).
Do not use where total lamp wattage is less than 40 W or greater than 300 W.
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.
To maximize light bulb life, use bulbs recommended for fan or “rough service” use.
Do not use pull chains to operate fan/light after installing this system.
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.

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.
