Thread: Using a RRD-6NA without a neutral

  1. #1

    Using a RRD-6NA without a neutral

    I'm retrofitting a house and I have a ton of RRD-6NA dimmers. There's a chandelier with 9 LEDs, but the old switch does NOT have a neutral wire. Can I use the -6NA and just ignore the silver screw? Or do I need to get a dimmer designed to work w/out neutral (6D)?

    Will the 6NA even support a 9 LED chandelier?

    Thanks!

    Use a 6CL. It does not need a neutral.

    It won't work. The 6NA requires the neutral, and will not power on without it. Imshea is correct, you would need the 6CL for this application. Check the LED compatibility tool on Lutron's website for your particular bulb.
