    Please HELP!

    I have purchased a remote control dimmer switch (Same as Screwfix 1) and replaced my existing light switch. Its makes an unusually loud buzz and after the lights being on a dimmed level for a while (about 30 mins) they start to FLICKER. I purchased a new ceiling rose and it still did it so i tried a higher wattage bulb, still no joy.
    The rating is 40W-300W. I got sent a replacement dimmer and put a spotlight bar up (4 x 40W not halogen) and the same problem persists. Is this a common problem or have i been unlucky with dimmers?
    PS I tried the dimmer on various other lights in the house and have the same problem. Have also bought a standard rotary dimmer to try which has no problems.

    Please can anyone help?

    Shane, double check the tightness of the wires in the switch terminals and make sure you have good tight contacts.
