switch rules


Just noticed a sticker on the side of a dimmer switch i just installed, which says "terminal for 3 way application only, single pole use only". If I'm not using it for a 3 way switch, do i really have to replace it?

Not if you installed it correctly. A 3 way can be used as a single pole if wired right. I have seen dimmers made made for both. Usually a little more expensive.
