Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect affordable dimmer Purchased this dimmer switch to replace the single light switch in my son's nursery so that we can turn the lights down gently at bed time and also to save dazzling him if he wakes up in the night. No hassle at all with wiring and fitting in the back box if you are practically minded. Switch push action to turn on has a nice positive click that isn't too loud and the rotary adjustment is smooth and precise. It does buzz a little when dimming the lamp but to be expected at this price and easily ignored! Been fitted and used daily for a year now with no issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good dimmer for price I needed a speed controller for a 90w fan and the one I try didn't work so I thought I try this dimmer as it was rated far higher than my 90w. I installed this and it works a treat at high no buzzing and also run at low speed no problems and even if it switch on at the lowest level the fan starts up no problems at all and it's smooth operation from low to high speed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEWARE - NOT FOR LED I bought this dimmer after reading earlier reviews saying it is suitable for LED bulbs. After fitting, the switch works perfectly, I was very happy until I read the instructions which come with the switch. They clearly state that this switch is NOT SUITABLE FOR LED BULBS. I have since been on the internet to read up on what the consequences of using a standard dimmer may be. USING A STANDARD DIMMER MAY SHORTEN THE LIFE OF YOUR LED BULBS CONSIDERABLY With the price of LED bulbs being so much higher than the extra cost of buying an LED dimmer switch it would be foolish not to pay the extra and fit the correct switch.

Wont work with 28 watt halogen dimmeables

I bought two switches for two rooms and installed them with 28watt halogen bulbs, neither work (wont turn lights on) and are on standerd pendants, why could this be?
Asked by: Tommy9321
Hello Tommy9321, thanks for your question. I can't see why this would happen, I would recommend double checking the wiring, and trying the dimmer on another suitable circuit. If it still doesn't work, and is definitely faulty, I would recommend exchanging for another at Screwfix. Sorry for any inconvenience, thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Is this compatible with my spotlights?

i have 4 spotlights in my room coming to a single switch and i have 4 led light bulbs each at 3w/ 220/240v so will i be able to use this dimmer to control all 4 lights

Hello HaiderAli, thanks for your question. This dimmer isn't suitable for LED lighting unfortunately, as it is from our V-Dim range. You will need to get something from our V-Pro range, such as a JQP401W (Screwfix code: 94816). Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Is product No.34373 specifically for mains LED lights?

Asked by: SparkyMaxy
This dimmer is currently working with mains leds ! I have four 5w gu10 lamps in a fitting, and works very well - from full on to very dim.. although they wont turn on at fully dim, just twist the knob up/down solves that!
