I have a ceiling fan with lights in. I'd like a dimmer control for the lights, and a seperate on-off switch for the fan. I'd like it to fit in the existing single-gang box. The fan wiring and building wiring (12-3) supports the idea.
I can't find anything with this arrangement. There are lots of dimmers with little toggle switches below, but it's never implied that this switch is brought out for wiring independent of the dimmer control.
Also common are dimmer/fan speed controls with dual sliders, but I'm not really into that idea. The existing switch is a dimmer, actually, and it makes the fan motor buzz something fierce if it's not full on. The fan has three speeds via pullchain. Besides those dual slider jobs are pretty pricey.
Anyone know make/model of the kind of thing I'm looking for?
Hey while we're on the subject I'm looking for a screw-in lamp socket adaptor that excites both poles of a three-way bulb, or at least has a pull-chain for three-way ops.
Ultimately if I can't find what I want I guess I'll just leave the exisitng dimmer in and wire the fan always-on, and leave control of it entirely to the pullchain.
