    How to detach dimmer module from plate?

    Hi all An LED dimmer with a chrome plate has broken - it no longer clicks or turns on the light when you push the switch in. I'm assuming I need to replace the black dimmer module, as shown in the pic below, but I'm unsure how to detach it from the chrome plate at the moment. It looks like it...

    Is total wattage for the light fixture or the circuit?

    Hi, apologies for what may be a dumb question! I'm planning to upgrade a broken dimmer switch which was rated up to 250w with an LED-compatible one (the Varilight JQP401W), which is apparently only rated up to 120w. I initially assumed this would be fine as the switch only controls a single...

    Energenie Mihome switches require dimmable bulbs

    I bought some Mihome switches (not dimmer switches) to be able to automate my external lights which are fitted with non dimmable LED's. I fitted the first switch only for the lights not to work. I don't really want to have to change all the LED lamps to dimmable at added expense. Does anyone...

    Switching off bathroom light sometimes dims living room lights

    Every so often, when I switch off the bathroom light (which also switches off the extractor fan) the 5x dimmer spotlights in the living room dim (quite significantly) for a split second before brightening again. Seems to be the only combination of things to cause this - no other lights affected...

    Led dimming

    "Replacing Non-Dimmable LED's with Dimmable LED's due to No Earth" - Not my Words!

    Just a quick post that some on here may find amusing. The other day I replaced the non-dimmable LED light bulbs in the living room and downstairs hallway with dimmable counterparts as they can be used with automated Z-Wave switches what don't require a neutral connection. (Hallway and Living...
