Rated 5 out of 5 by from British general LED dimmer Bought to replace old (,filament build), dimmer to save money on ever growing electricity prices
Date published: 2022-04-02
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cheap and nasty Bought as the other 3 LED dimmers I wanted were out of stock locally. Buzz is ever-present no matter if what setting you have it. Tried adding and removing lights from the circuit but still buzzes away. Total waste of money unless your customer like the sound of buzzing

How Do you Stop Light BulbsFlickering

The switch controls 2 x 5W LED dimmable bulbs. After the lights have been on for 30 to 60 minutes both start to flicker. The bulbs are new. Does this mean the switch is faulty?
Asked by: ScotsCyclist
Hi ScotsCyclist, The fact that it's taking so long for the lights to begin flickering sounds like it might be related to heat rise in components (possibly in the lamps themselves), so other than ensuring that the LEDs are Leading Edge Dimmable, and that the dimmer has its potentiometer screw on the rear fully anti-clockwise (to ensure it's in LED mode) there isn't anything else we can advise you to do.

Would this control a couple of LED spots AND a bathroom extractor fan?

I'm replacing an existing switch which no longer works. Some of the dimmers I have seen say not for use with an extractor fan but I need one that can control both LED bulbs and the fan. Thanks
Asked by: Hollogram
Hi Hollogram LED lamps and extractor fans should not really be connected to the same circuit and fans especially shouldnt be controlled with dimmers. Extractor fans should be connected using a triple pole fan isolator switch. Hope this helps,should you require any further assitance please contact us directly on 01952 238128

Would this work for a chandelier with multiple bulbs on?

Asked by: Bridgford
Hi Bridgford, As long as you don't overload the total capacity of the dimmer for your lighting type then having multiple lamps on the fitting shouldn't be too much of an issue (although more than 10 LEDs on a single dimmer can sometimes result in flickering due to cross-interference).

Are these programmable can you adjust dimming and remove flickering?

Asked by: Jakdugg
Hi Jakdugg, The Leading Edge type dimmer module used on this BG dimmer can be set to either LED or non-LED mode, but there is no other adjustment or programming function designed into them.
