Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polished Great finish, well made and works as it should. Has an antique look, (not a cheap and cheerful look and feel).

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Came Broken Odered on Saturday and didnt get a txt till Tuesday to pick it up. When i got home and opened the package the switch was broken so my time was wasted. The switch looked nice but shame it came broken. However Screwfix quick to refund and offer a replacement which was in stock at the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not a trailing edge LED dimmer Needed an antique brass dimmer for LED candle bulbs to match our main chandelier light. When reading the description I saw LED dimmer and thought this would fit the bill. It's a leading edge dimmer which can cause flickering and humming noise if used with LED bulbs so I decided not to unpack and use it as our old leading edge dimmer was not compatible. Search continues for the antique brass finish but with trailing edge for LEDs.

Why does the switch buzz when turned on? The light fitting has 5 x 28W G9 halogen bulbs

Asked by: Parvesh
Hi Parvesh, Firstly, the dimmer should be adjusted to non-LED mode (potentiometer on the rear fully clockwise). Next you will need to check for any transformer in the fitting, as this would need to be Leading Edge Dimmable in order to be compatible with being operated by our dimmers. If neither of these points improves matters then we will need more information about the fitting and lighting circuit, so please contact us directly at:- technical@luceco.uk

Can I use this dimmer switch with 6 x 5w dimmable led spot lights?

Asked by: Luckyme
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. When set to LED mode (potentiometer on the rear fully anti-clockwise) this British General 1-Gang 2-Way Push Dimmer Switch 400W Antique Brass have a 5-50W load range for Leading Edge dimmable LEDs (so your indicated 30W would be roughly in the middle of this range).

WILL THIS WORK WITH LAP 5.9W LED CANDLE BC BULB

Asked by: Fruitbat46
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General 1-Gang 2-Way Push Dimmer Switch 400W Antique Brass uses the standard BG dimmer module which can be adjusted to control a 5-50W Leading Edge dimmable LED load, so if your candle lamps are of the correct dimmable type then you could control between 1 and 8 lamps per dimmer module.

Can this (1 switch) work with multiple donwlights, say 10 halogen 42W bulbs?

And/or if I change the bulbs to LED equivalents over time?
Asked by: Scotty12
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. All current British General dimmers use workings with a variety of load ranges depending on lighting type. With the adjuster screw on the rear of the dimmer module in the fully clockwise position Tungsten Filament lamps have a 60-400W range, Mains Voltage Halogen lamps have a 50-400W range, Transformed (12V) lamps have a 35-350W range, dimmable Compact Fluorescent lamps (CFLs) have a 10-100W range and when the module is correctly adjusted (with the screw on the rear fully anti-clockwise) LED lamps have a 5-50W range. Therefore, your example 42W Halogen lamps would be fine in a circuit of 2-9 only.
