Rated 1 out of 5 by switch broken Fitted and during flash continuity test I realised the on off function on one side was intermittent. Returned for replacement. Unit is nice with good movement but not good that this passed QC. 24 Oct 2015

Help needed

I used this switch for some mains powered outside rope lights. I broke the live wire through the switch, but when the switch is in the off position the lights are on but very dim. Switching on then puts the lights on full. Any ideas please?

Due to the provision of an indicator light on the switch, which comes pre-wired to activate when the switch is in the off position, there will be a constant small power flow which is lighting the indicator but also causing your fairly low powered rope lights to glow dimly.
To avoid this you would need to either disconnect the indicator light completely or else move to a permanently on setup using a Neutral connection and the permanent Live feed going into the switch.
