sorry in advance for the long post ... just looking for some guidance
we had some wiring put in for a fan, light switch dimmer
apparently he put in a module to control both the light and fan (see link below) and it appeared to work properly
after he left I noticed that the other switches next to it got a little crooked during the install so i took the face plate and attempted to just realign slightly and poof. sparks flew and circuit blew
turns out he didn't cap the ground on the switch that he installed so presumably while i was doing some aligning it must have touched a hot wire and shorted the circuit. awesome
i get everything else back working but the fan/light wont even work. I call Lutron and they say that during the short it probably blew the module and I need a new one
i go to Home Depot and buy a new module that he installed and re-installed (switch and canopy piece)
the fan now gets power but the switches aren't controlling it. The support for Lutron tells me that sometimes there is noise on the line causing issues and I should shut off all other circuits and try to reset the module. I shut off almost all other circuits n the house but still no luck
Are you working on electrical outlets without first flipping the breaker? Once the switch plate is off that is your next step.
If you are as experienced as you say and have been working that way you should count your lucky stars that you haven't been seriously injured.
