I constructed a light fixture for my new dining room. It consists of seven lights wired in parallel. They are different bulbs (list below). Each run through a satco switch (90/1670).
Before running the wires through the ceiling I assembled the maestro cl (MACL-153MR-WH) in series with a two pronged plug which I plugged into the wall. The switch itself is not grounded, which may be my problem, but I thought it would be a useful exercise since I won't have a chance to get into the attic for a few days.
The problem is, when the switch is off two of the lights are still lit. The two lights still lit are the two lowest current bulbs (each is 1 Amp). But when I turn these two lights off (at the satco switches) the other five come on! I've adjusted the lower set point with no change in this behavior.
Should I wire it up and see if the ground solves my problem? Do I have incompatible bulbs?
