I stripped my Casablanca fan down to the motor. Control board, inteli-touch wall switch, sensors, and light kit (added cans to the room): all in the trash (after I scavenged the starting capacitor from the control board). I then direct wired the motor / capacitor as a true PSC motor to the Lutron switch. Everything is working as it should, but on 75% (3rd speed) there is a slight hum from the switch.

Has anyone else had a similar experience? A couple of my incandescent cans hum slightly at low levels and I think I have one other switch that has a slight hum...

Depending on the intensity I think this is "normal". Also some people are audibly more sensitive to this. If it's very loud I would try to do something about it. If you have someway to check heat or current (motor) I would check to see these are not elevated to make sure it's safe.

Lights can do that to, especially MLV (MR16). Cheap incandescent lamps are prone to this as well. Even some LED, if you have the joy of a certain generation/version Halo 4" LED as I do you know what I'm talking about.
