Rated 3 out of 5 by from Worked well for a while Purchased 3 of these switches, at first great. Almost a year now and the clicking mechanism has gone so you need to press the button a few times to get the light on. One now doesnt click at all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOOKS SO EXPENSIVE! It's ridiculous to think that such a small element in the room can make such a big difference! This switch transformed the room and made it look more modern and it looks way more expensive than what we paid for it! Very easy to install too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stylish swtiches Bought this with sockets to match as I wanted something different to the usual white or chrome switches, they look great & always commented on, I will be buying more for other rooms in the house.

Why does this buzz?

I bought this switch to go with 3 dimmable LED spotlights and this and the lights buzz. Don’t understand as it’s specifically designed for this Buzzing gets worse if you try to dim!
Asked by: KlosDIY
Hi KlosDIY, Strictly speaking all dimmed circuits buzz, but it is normally outside of the range of human hearing in both volume and frequency. A strong audible buzzing is normally an indication of an inappropriate load, so either the dimmer is not set into LED mode (by turning the potentiometer on the rear fully anti-clockwise), the lighting is outside of the normal LED load range of 5-50W, or the lighting is designed specifically for Trailing Edge dimming where this is a Leading Edge type dimmer (so the method of dimming required is different).

will this work with LEDs?

Asked by: RetreatNorth
Hi RetreatNorth, The dimmer module which British General currently manufactures and uses has a potentiometer on the rear which, when turned fully anti-clockwise, will put the module into a 5-50W Leading Edge type LED dimming mode.

Can I get Matt black buttons for this

Asked by: Doitall2019
Hi Doitall2019, British General does not make any matt black dimmer knobs, so we cannot advise you where to find any for sale unfortunately.

is the push button black as well?

Asked by: imogen132
Hi, thank you for your product enquiry. The dimmer button is a polished chrome finish, the dimmer frame is matt black.
