Can the 6161T control a fan?

    NO, the 6161T is rated for 500 watts of incandescent lighting.

    The LTB60-1LZ is capable of controlling motor loads up to 1HP.  View the product specification sheet here: http://communities.leviton.com/docs/DOC-1834

      Please help me to understand why it doesn't work on a fan.  I have one on a bathroom heater that draws 10.5 amps, but I tried adding another for a simple vent fan and it is not reaching peak speed.  I would imagine the fan must draw LESS than the heater, so why won't it work?  AND.....do you have a similar unit that I can get that will work on a fan?

       

      Thanks,

      The link you provided says "Ventilation, exhaust, attic and ceiling fans".

      I too bought this to try with a bathroom exhaust fan, but the fan runs at about 1/2 normal speed.

      The fan is a Brian 57N2, rated .7-.9 amps at 120v.
