Rated 2 out of 5 by from Dimable switch When you turn on low dimmer then you feel bit bad noise sound

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after 2 weeks To reflect a previous review; very difficult to fit without removing a lot of material. Dimmer failed after 2 weeks - only fitted another as it was a match for the rest (which were marginally less difficult to fit. Seriously, don't even try if you have shallow knock outs. Gave 1 star for performance, as 0 not an option.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Badly designed This dimmer works however, I would never fit these again. The back plate of the dimmer has a square shape that is meant to fit perfectly within a backing box so that the fittings is level. This creates two major problems - firstly it does not allow for any correction in alignment of the fitting. Secondly and this is the far bigger problem, this "frame" is as wide as a standard backing box preventling the dimmer module for being inserted. I have had to cut sections off the plastic dimmer fitting to get in in place. As a professional electrician it took me 35 minutes to install one of these. DO NOT BUY. Also the rest of the range is slighyly oversized. So if you buy a dual accessory backing box, you will find the fittings overlap. I repeat - DO NOT BUY.

Can this dimmer operate led dimmable lamps?

Asked by: QuickQ
Hi QuickQ, This dimmer is not suitable for use with dimmable LED lamps. However, the Varilight LED Dimmer (Screwfix Product Code 6522F) is similar and can be used with dimmable LEDs.
