    MACL-153 occupancy sensor always turns light on to Max dim level

    If I dim it to an acceptable level then toggle it on/off it stays at that level. But if I set the dim level and walk away no matter how many times I dim the light down it always gets triggered to turn on to max brightness when I return. I've tried reprogramming back to default but nothing has changed. It's a newer switch and wasn't like this for the first week I had it. Is there anything I can do or does it need to be returned?

    Not MACL, the MSCL-OP153M

    The manual on setting and the sensor on setting are (mostly) independent features. It sounds like the device is programmed to turn on at 100%. See section 8d of attached.

    This was definitely it and very strange. It was working at preset levels not too long ago and none of the other three MSCL 153s I have have done this. Anyways, thanks for the help. I almost returned it for nothing.

    Murphy's law of electronics. It will work find until it randomly changes. It will go back to normal when the tech pulls in the driveway.

    I believe the problem was it was mis-wired. The live wire and the one to the light were flipped. Probably lost its memory as a result.
