Dimmer Warning – Two things to be careful about with dimmers:1. Never connect a regular dimmer to low-voltage lights, paddle fans, or any kind or motor. These devices require special dimmers. 2. Never exceed the recommended wattage of the dimmer. Regular dimmers are rated for a maximum of 600 Watts. This is equal to 10 sixty Watt light bulbs, or 6 one hundred Watt bulbs. NOTE: You can also buy higher-wattage dimmers for connecting more than 600 Watts to one dimmer.
