Important Notes
Please read before installing.
1. Caution: To avoid overheating and possible damage to other equipment, do not use to control receptacles, fluorescent
lighting fixtures, motor-operated or transformer-supplied appliances.
2. Install in accordance with all national and local electrical codes.
3. DO NOT use Maestro® dimmers for compact fluorescent (Energy Saver) lamps.
4. When no “grounding means” exist within the wallbox then the NEC® 2005, Article 404-9 allows a dimmer 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 dimmer and use an appropriate wallplate such as
Lutron’s Claro® series wallplates.
5. Do not paint Dimmers or Maestro Accessory Dimmers (MAW-R).
6. Maestro Dimmers are NOT compatible with standard 3-way switches. Use only with the Maestro Accessory Dimmers
(MAW-R).
7. Do not use where total lamp wattage is less than 40 W or greater than 600 W (see Dimmer Capacity chart for details).
8. Operate between 32 °F (0 °C) and 104 °F (40 °C).
9. It is normal for Dimmer to feel warm to the touch during operation.
10. Recommended minimum wallbox depth is 2.5" (64 mm).
11. Maximum wire length between the Dimmer and the Maestro Accessory Dimmer (MAW-R) is 250' (76 m).
12. Clean dimmer with a soft damp cloth only. Do not use any chemical cleaners.
13. DO NOT use Incandescent/Halogen or Electronic Low-Voltage dimmers for Magnetic Low-Voltage lighting.
Dimming Rocker
• Tap once when unit is off Lights brighten smoothly to
preset intensity.
• Tap once when unit is on Lights dim smoothly to off.
• Tap twice quickly - Lights
brighten rapidly to full intensity.
• Press and hold when unit is
on - Each time dimmer is
turned off delayed fade to OFF
can be activated. As the tap
button is held, the LEDs will
begin to flash. The first flashing
LED represents a 10 second
fade to OFF. Each additional
flashing LED represents an
additional 10 seconds of delay
before lights fade to OFF (up to
60 seconds of delay).

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
To replace bulb, power may be
conveniently removed by pulling the
FASS switch out on both the Dimmer and
any Accessory Dimmers.
For any procedure other than routine
bulb replacement, power must be
disconnected at the main electrical
panel.

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. Removal of Dimmer side sections reduces maximum load
capacity. Refer to chart below for maximum Dimmer capacity.

Dimmer and Accessory Dimmer have a pre-installed
Lutron Claro wallplate. Remove the wallplate before
proceeding with installation. This will expose mounting
holes in adapter, and prevent wallplate damage while
installing.
Removing wallplates and switches.
• Remove the wallplate and switch mounting screws.
• Carefully remove switch from wall (do not remove wires).
Turn screws
to loosen.
3-Way Wiring
Danger: Verify
power to switch
is OFF before
proceeding.
Wiring the Dimmer (MAW-603):
• Using the wire connector provided, connect the green
ground wire on the Dimmer to the bare copper or
green ground wire in the wallbox.
