Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointed, again! Having returned a faulty LAP dimmer I replaced it with a BG. Well at least this did not create a bright flash to start, but neither is it very variable. Using 24w of LEDs it goes from full on to half on in a few degrees making anything in between very difficult. The pretty little low level adjusting screw on the back is just that, it does nothing to lower the light level.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for the money A good budget switch. I've fitted several and all bar one have lasted well. The one that failed did so after only eighteen months.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from dimmer Don't bother, get the 800 series, same dimmer modules, but cheaper

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Big buttons A good reliable and well made dimmer module however the buttons do look very big (far bigger than any I have seen before) so I’d reccomended looking at it before you take it home

What am I doing wrong?

Controling 2 lights in lounge/diner, Each has 3 x 4W dimmable LED's. They are flickering, either dimming & going back to bright, or flickering when dimmed. The adjusters on the back are turned all the way anti-clockwise.
Asked by: DIYBaldyman
Hi DIYBaldyman, This may be a case of conflicting dimming types, the BG Dimmers are Leading Edge type but your lamps might be optimised to work on a Trailing Edge dimming system so not like our dimmers for that reason (you would have to check with the lamp manufacturer to verify if this is the case).

What led bulbs are compatible with this switch

Asked by: 37jt
Hi 37jt, The dimmer modules on this switch plate are of a Leading Edge type, so compatible lighting would be any Tungsten Filament or mains voltage Halogen, any low-voltage transformed lighting with a Leading Edge dimmable transformer, or any Leading Edge dimmable Compact Fluorescent or LED lighting.

Why does one switch buzz?

Hi, just fitted this and one switch works great with no noise. The other when switched on buzzes a lot - this is supplying 4 halogen bulbs in my kitchen. Despite the buzzing it switches on and dims perfectly well. Is the switch faulty ?
Asked by: monkeyTennis22
Hi monkeyTennis22, An audibly buzzing dimmer or circuit normally indicates some sort of incompatibility, in the case of these dimmers it may be telling you that the adjustment potentiometer on the rear of the module is in LED mode (fully anti-clockwise) and thus overloaded by your lamps (light bulbs).

Are LAP LED dimmable bulbs (from Screwfix) compatable?

.. compatable? Have had this dimmer fitted but the lights are flickering on dimming.
Asked by: anglesey
Hi anglesey, That will depend on the dimming type required for the LAP brand lamps. This dimmer is a Leading Edge type dimmer with a 5-50W load range for LED lighting (when the adjuster screw on the rear of each dimmer module is turned fully anti-clockwise).
