To check To test A Dimmer Switch
Adding a dimmer to your room is a reasonable strategy to upgrade a home. Dimmers reduce energy usage by lowering the sunshine levels in a room. Unlike ordinary receptacles, a dimmer has wire leads instead of line and load terminals. When you believe that a dimmer switch could also be faulty, test the device to ensure that the issue lies with the dimmer switch and never circuit connections. Replace any faulty dimmers with working ones as soon as possible.
Things You may Need
Turn the breaker to the dimmer circuit off at the service panel. The service panel houses the entire breakers to a home’s electrical system.
Remove the dimmer cover plate from the wall using the screwdriver. Disconnect the dimmer from the wires located within the outlet box. Loosen wire nuts and take away electrician’s tape from the wires.
Attach the continuity tester’s alligator clip to one of the dimmer wire leads. Hold the continuity tester’s probe to the other dimmer wire lead. If the continuity tester’s continuity LED glows, the device is working; otherwise, you’ve got a faulty dimmer switch.
