Dimmer switch problem.

Postby Sheffordian » Thu Dec 03, 2020 2:11 pm

I have just replaced a light fitting and now have a flickering problem. I have a double dimmer set up - one dimmer switch (Varilight Pro) and one normal on/off switch. Switches have not been changed. Dimmer switch must be 10/12 years old. Bulbs are 3 dimmable LEDs as were the bulbs in the original fitting. Bulbs are Crompton, each 5w.
I have used Wago 221 connections in the light fitting.
The dimming works but, after a minute or two, one of the 3 bulbs stars flashing, the other two are lit as normal. I wondered if it might be the bulb so swapped over that bulb (lets say #1) with #2; switched on again and #1 and #2 are lit and not flashing but now it's #3 that's flashing. Any ideas please? Thanks in advance.

All sorted thanks. Have been notified of the different modes of the switch and now have it sorted.
