    Dimmer works but light does not shut off completely

    The dimmer switch and remote work great, but the light does not shut off.

    It could be a compatibility issue, a minimum load issue or both. If your dimmer has a neutral, make sure it is connected. Check Lutron.com/led for compatible bulbs.

    The standard dimmer has a minimum load requirement of about 2 fixtures IIRC...Remember that the standard dimmer doesn't have a neutral so it needs to send some current through the fixture to get its own internal sparulators to work. Best solution is to get a neutral version of the dimmer - Pro dimmer perhaps or ELV dimmer but the ELV dimmer defaults to reverse phase so if your lighting can't work with reverse phase, you'd need to change it to forward phase following the instructions in that 30 page advanced manual.
