Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice Fitting looks nice, good quality, easy to install & works as expected. No problems at all.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Failed after 15 months I decided to pay good money in the hope this would last- the 25 year warranty seemed reassuring enough. 15 months after fitting the dimmer sticks on. I have contacted screwfix to claim a refund. Don't be fooled - price does not guarantee reliability. (DRC IEng MIET)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not a good product. This product does what it says on the tin. However it does not fit into a standard 35mm backbox, especially when you have it in a two way switching arrangement, and the wiring is fed across the switches. The terminals are very small so need a mini screwdriver to use and an even smaller one to adjust the dimmer range. Avoid these, you don't need a 400w dimmer unless you have a large room and are running 10 or so halogens off of each switch.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nearly good A nice looking dimmer that's easy to fit and we'll designed. Wanted this finish to match sockets. All works well, doesn't dim to zero but if you want that them turn it off. Only one problem, one of the switches wouldn't turn off. By a process of elimination I found that it was the switch knob! This sat on the switch too deep. A small piece of folded paper pushed into the hole sorted it. A shame that something as silly as this spoiled was was otherwise a great product. Obviously not tested properly before despatch. Was worth trying a fix as its not available without pre-order & next day so a replacement wouldn't just be a case of go and get another.

Does load refer to total load, or load of individual bulbs?

I bought some LAP G9 dimmable LED bulbs (Screwfix product 7688V), which flicker on my current dimmer switch. There are 5 bulbs in total running on one of the gangs, and 4 on the other, so total load 15W and 12W respectively, will this switch work okay?
Asked by: Crafty13UK
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The wattage you described would work with this product. The LED bulbs must be leading edge not trailing edge otherwise they will still flicker.

Quantity of LED's this switch can Dim?

we have 11 6w downlights in Kitchen and a 2 button switch. 1 button on switch turns on 4 and other button turns 7 LED's.Switch details 400W and the Lights each consume 6W so x11 lights=66W Consumed. Equivalent watt is 50W each so x11=550W.

Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. This British General 2-Gang 2-Way Push Dimmer Switch 400W Brushed Iridium uses the same dimmer modules that all BG plate dimmers use, which are capable of dimming 5-50W of Leading Edge dimmable LED lighting when correctly adjusted (4th screw on the rear fully anti-clockwise). So your load levels are within the capabilities of the dimmer modules (24W and 42W respectively) as long as the white plastic selector screw is correctly adjusted and the lamps are Leading Edge dimmable (incorrect adjustment or incompatible dimming type requirement could cause a circuit to buzz audibly at the lamps, the dimmer, or both).

LEDs...

I want a double gang dimmer to work with 1x9 watt LED on one gang and 4x5 watt on the other gang. Will this do work?

I used this dimmer on 6x 7w GU10 led lights 2700K on the first switch and 4x 7w GU10 led lights 2700K on the second switch When we switch the lights, the lights have a horrible buzzing sound. Any reason for that

Dim LED Lamps?

Hi, we already have this product in our lounge that is used to dim halogen GU10 lamps. Will this product be suitable to dim LED GU10s?
