LED Light Dimmer Flicker

LED Light Dimmer

LED Light Dimmer Flicker

If you have recently upgraded to LED light fixtures as part of a renovation or you have installed LED light fixtures in a new construction project, you may have run into an issue when the dimmer switch was installed.

Frequently dimmer switches flicker or blink when they are not compatible with the LED light fixtures that they are being used with.

In this video, Renos shares a recent experience with LED light dimmer flicker and what he did to resolve the issue.

My led lights flicker now and then, i.e. they are stable until about one hour has passed and then they flicker for a few minutes and then they are stable for a while, like an hour, and then they flicker and then....repeat, repeat, etc, etc. Very frustrating. Any ideas on this? We have various led light fixtures including recessed pot lights, a chandelier and 3 hanging led lights installed in one open space and they all flicker. We also are using dimmer switches but the flickering seems to be independent of the flicker, i.e.adjusting the dimmer does not affect the flickering. Any ideas?

Good advice. Wifey said the 2x4 and 2x2 lights in the basement we're too bright ! ( winer ...how much time does she really spend in the basement anyway ) Got a Leviton dimmer switch at HD, wired it correctly !! and wala !! flickering at the low light level. Noticed that both the 2x2 and 2x4 lights had a " purple " wire with the wire harness.........time to call a electrician.

The solution is an electronic dimmer, there like $75 -$85 each.

fundifferent1

So, are you supposed to switch them out for a new brand, then or can you use the same brand?

Just me

Should have talked to an electrician, sounds like your wattage was too high for the dimmer. Each row of lights on their own switch. Had the same issue and the switch maker and the light maker said the same thing.

Summer Time

Thank you. Replacing the dimmer and fixture. Also trying different dimmer bulbs.

AJourneyOfYourSoul

I had the same exact issue. I put 6” lights in kitchen, living room and master bedroom. All worked no problem. I put 4” in the dining room and they flickered. No matter what dimmer switch it wouldn’t fix it. Changed out fixtures and worked fine.

Ramón Castillo

Which kind of dimmer did you use?

bubba lo

There are some led compatible dimmer switches that have an adjustable load dial so you can fine tune it to solve the flickering issues becasue not all manufacturers have the same specs. Try that next time if you experience flickering.

Ed V

My lights are doing the flickering, do I need to buy lights with smaller wattage?

Robin Goff

Thank you so much

Edward Arakelian

I had the very same experience.
Swapped dimmers a few times and gave up.
Watching this video motivated me to get back to it now hehe

DT D

i have same problem but when i disconnect ground plug it stops flickering. but worried about getting shocked now when i cut the lights back on. any thoughts ?

Larry Davis

I have the same problem with a different twist...... When i disconnect the ground wire it stops flickering when i lower the dimmer. When i connect ground wire back they start to flicker again only when i lower the dimmer........
Weird........any clues?

Victor Valente

Sometimes in rush current plays a factor with switch. This happened to me couple different times. First time I just split into 2 zones with 2 switches. The second time instead of “ daisy chain” I branched off a single box to each light.

ferociousjoe05

When you say replace the fixtures do do you mean the lights that are flickering or all of the fixtures on that line?

Big Chris

Out of curiosity what kind of lights were they? I’ve got 6” torchstar lights and they are doing the same thing

sktshorty

So mine have worked fine for a while now, but a few days ago they started flickering. I replaced the switch no change, pulled each bulb out one at a time to see if one was causing the issue. Tried adjusting the dimmer setup. No luck.

Factors to Consider When Selecting LED Lights @Jw-I

Rodolfo Hernandez

I have run across this issue a lot. Not the best solution but has worked for me is adding a 7W or 5W incandescent C9 bulb in the same circuit/dimmer. Im not an electrician but this has been the one thing that has worked for me to get rid of the flickering when using LED lights on a dimmer switch. I mainly work with Lutron and Leviton dimmers. Has anyone tried this before?

Rita Vogt

So if I have flickering kitchen led lights not in a dimmer are you saying just buy a new set of led or go back to a regular can light with bulbs ?

haden111

The wattage you have is too high for the bulbs (LEDs always much less power than traditional bulbs) and the result is that they flicker. You can solve this usually by adding in a resistor in parallel to the circuit - some dimmer switch manufacturers supply these so that you don't need so spend time working out the resistance that's necessary.

Returning all these lights back to the store is not resolving the issue.... I'm a hundred percent sure you had problem with wiring or just one of the lights was defective, casing all other lights flickers

lovemagicandroad

I’ll summarize, Get a New Lamp!

Malawi Gold

Thx man! Can u tell us what exactly is the brand and style of light fixtures/bulbs that dont flicker?

davidhunternyc

What a pain! I will just stick to my incandescent bulbs.

Thousand Nations 1 Soul

Can I change the switch and not worry about the dimming will it work then . Mines not turning on at all

Sing-Cheong Chen

One gap that many people missed about LED lights are that it is powered by DC power supply, and the most reliable way to dim it is using DC. This power supply either comes build-in, such as Philips E27 bulbs, or as external ballasts (technically, it is called LED driver, or power supply).

Many traditional dimmer light, especially those in big box store (HomeDepot), uses TRIAC that you can see its voltage/current output explained in https://www.digikey.ca/en/articles/dimming-leds-with-traditional-triac-dimmers. Even branded Philips bulbs, including E27, build-in LED driver circuit sometimes has difficulty to dim it, and produces noise or blink. Since the LED driver is build-in, it is not possible to replace the circuit board itself, but to replace the entire light fixture.

My recommendation is to use light fixture which has dedicated wire, or connector for 0-10V or PWM dim control. If the light fixture has a choice to use external LED driver (AC-DC power supply), then choose those models, so that in future, you can replace the driver with one that can offer 0-10V dim control wire, PWM, DALI protocol, wifi, self-dim with NTE resister (either photo cell, temperature sensor). This will require physically pull 2 more extra wires to every light fixture (parallel in the same bank/gang), which many installer didn't do in the first place, and resulting in more cost to buy more 0-20V/PWM controller.

I've had an issue where they'll randomly flicker. Happens a lot when they are dimmed down. I verified the switch was correct and my next try was possibly changing bulbs before the cans

Geno Adams

I just went through this with 3 way dimmer switches... turns out alot of dimmer switches have a trim setting.

Dennis Barney

great video, Puzzle for some one, one and only one led light BULB flickers only when electric tankless hot water heater is used. If the hot water is turned on anywhere in the house the light will flick and stop as soon as the hot water is turned off. There is a dimmer on this run, works great UNTEL you use the hot water. Any ideas

jim mayors

someone said buying and installing LEDs would save us money. So far, that hasn't been true! Contractor installed ceiling can LED in our remodel. Two banks were on dimmers. Rest were on/off switches. I wanted all dimmables and matched what he installed. After about 2 months, one circuit of 4 lights started blinking. Then, several days later, another bank (that he installed) started blinking. Expecting the rest to start also. I set the dimmer half way down, and it stopped the blinking, for about 20 minutes, then it started blinking at that setting. UGH! Not happy with LEDs so far!

aws khalil

Man you are the only one who got the exact same issue im having right now haha, thanks a lot..
Even tho I just found out that my dimmer doesn't work correctly with 5WAT leds, im trying to try another dimmer and if i still have the same issue i will change the whole room leds

Ive done 4 sets of lights. TVs, bedrooms. I connected 4 sets of strips together. One strip will be yellow and the other 3 are red. One strip is white the other three are blue. In the bed room the further the distance the color changes. It will be red close to the power supply and almost pink orange by the end of the 60' run. These connectors do not work well at all. They are so finicky.
