Pulse switch with timer dimming light instead of turning it off

Postby pytremblay » Wed May 11, 2022 11:26 am

Trying to install a pulse switch with a timer to automatically turn off the light after a delay. The same setup works perfectly well in three other bathroom stalls but for some reason the electrician did not install the same in the fourth stall, just an on/off switch.

I duplicated exactly the setup in the fourth stall (pulse switch with the same model of timer) but once the delay ends, the light dims instead of turning off. I tried two different timers and switches, same problem. I really don't know where to look next...

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Get another electrician.
I would suggest changing the offending light fitting.
