Rated 3 out of 5 by from Oh dear First unit cracked after only one week. Screwfix changed it for a new one with no fuss. The replacement unit gets very hot and makes a buzzing noise.

The unit is running 4 X 120 watt halogen bulbs . It gets very hot and makes loud buzzing noise. Is this normal or is it a faulty unit?

Asked by: Middleofnowhere
Hello Middleofnowhere, thanks for your question. The dimmer will get warm and buzz slightly during operation, as with any other dimmer, or electronic component controlling current. One of main ways the dimmer dissipates heat is through the heat sink on the plate, so the dimmer plate will be one of the hottest parts of the dimmer, but it should never be too hot to hold your hand on. Your current setup is very near the maximum load of this dimmer, so this unit is operating near maximum capacity. You would find these symptoms reduced on one of our 700W or 1000W dimmers.

Use with a heater

Is it possible to use this with a patio heater please? The one I have in mind has halogen/quartz heaters, each rated at 500w

Hi Markb1981htubdfj, thanks for your question. Unfortunately this dimmer is only for use in a lighting circuit, so it unsuitable for this purpose. Thanks for your interest in Varilight.

Dear gazzam. Thank you for your question. This dimmer is not suitable for use with LED loads. The dimmer in the same style that will be suitable is Screwfix code: 94816. 94816 will be able to dim 1-10 LEDs (max. 100W). Thank you for your interest in VARILIGHT products.
