Rated 3 out of 5 by from Misleading Incompatible with low voltage LED bulbs. When converted to LEDs, no light fixture in my home pulls enough current to work with this dimmer. Adjusting the trim simply keeps the bulbs from dimming to the point of flicker (defeating the point of having a dimmer if the lights cannot be dimmed). I only discovered some fine print, ~"not for 0-10v" after extensive research. This information is nowhere on the box or packaging. Frustratingly, I really like the fit, feel, and finish of this switch. I am considering returning to incandescent bulbs in the fixture just so I can keep this switch.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful dimming This dimmer flickers dimmable 2700k LED recessed can lights retrofit modules , thats just ridiculous , any dimmer would dim a 40 watt or 4 10 watt led load minimum, but this awful product can’t even do that and it rated for LED but not 0 to 10 volt driver ?? All LED products have that rating now , poor design and engineering I will never use another Legrand product for any reason, I’ve been an electrician for 35 years

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Dimmer We've used them through out our house but this one was defective and I had to return it because the hot wire screw was stripped. I will repurchase because I think this was a one time thing and they are a beautiful update to our home

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No screws, clean lines We replaced our bathroom switch with this one. It's elegant and classy, and adds a touch of class to our newly remodeled bathroom. Lines are clean and there's no screws showing. The changeover from old to new was really easy.

What type of dimmer is the RHCL453PW? ie: forward phase, reverse phase, etc.

Asked by: Chris

Date published: 2020-03-13

I have a Legrand RHCL453P which I'm using with some under cabinet LED ribbon lighting. I am experiencing some flickering and I need to know if there is some type of adjustment I can make to alleviate this problem.

Asked by: Pete
Hello, The RhCL453P is rated for dimmable CFL/LED bulbs which screw into conventional incandescent lamp sockets. The bulbs may not be compatible with the dimmer and this may cause the flickering. Hope this helps, Have a great day.

Connecting this to ceiling fan using a single pole installation. To dim & turn on/off the light on the ceiling fan I am using this model. To change fan speed & turn on/off the blades I am using RHDH163PTCCCV6. Do I need a neutral wire for the light?

Asked by: Question411
The RHCL453PTC dimmer does not require a Neutral connection to the dimmer.

For a 3-way operation, does the common wire that is the power source have to be connected to the dimmer or can the common wire that is the switch leg be connected instead?

Asked by: Will
The RHCL453PTC dimmer can be installed on either side of a 3way circuit.

I have this dimmer installed on a circuit with (2) LED BR30 floodlights (65w equivalent).  I have been unable to get the bulbs to dim beIow about 50%.  I have adjusted the calibration and tried different bulb manufacturers. Any suggestions?

Asked by: Terry
The dimmer should dim lower than 50% so I would suggest trying another dimmer(same model) or try the universal dimmer in the same line(RH703PTUTC).

I bought this dimmer on amazon and was advertised as a led compatible switch and when arrived packaging say only  halo inc compatible. Will this work for led cans and under counter led lighting? 

Asked by: Sowellelectric88
Thank you for your inquiry regarding our RHCL453P dimmer. This device is LED compatible so I am not sure why the packaging for your product says incandescent only. If this is the right part number, the product is compatible with LED screw in bulbs. If you are looking for a compatibility chart, please contact us at 800-223-4185 or via email at Hope this helps!

When I shut switch off Im still get 40 volts feed thru switch. Is this normal

Asked by: Geo61281
Thank you for your question regarding Legrand dimmer RHCL453P. Yes, the leak through current is normal for all of our "illuminated when off" dimmers and switches.

I like these but there is one if the 3 I have. When the dimmer is all the way down, my 6 LEDs get really dim which is perfect for tv. I want 2 others that get that dim. My electrician said that one would likely be considered defective. I want 2 more! 

Asked by: bhamnerky
The RHCL453PW dimmer has a calibration wheel adjustment that can help with the dimming range of the dimmer(see instruction below). The lowest dimming level will also depend on the quality/type/brand of your LED's. Dimmer may require adjustment to the low end setting to reliably start and/or remove flickering in bulbs. To adjust, DISCONNECT POWER FROM CIRCUIT, and remove the Wallplate. Use a small insulated, flat tipped screwdriver to adjust the trim pot wheel, which is accessible via the slot (marked “CALIBRATION”) provided on the strap (Figure 3). Turn the wheel downwards to increase the minimum light intensity setting and turn the wheel upwards to decrease light intensity. Next, install the Wallplate, restore the power and test. Repeat above as necessary.
