    Default zdw232 flicker

    I've just installed a zdw232 dimmer switch, and its giving me a few problems. Basically, when it is switched off the bulb strobes (off to about 10% dim) 50-60 times a second.

    It isn't flickering during switch off or on, just a permanent flicker when in an off state.

    I've tried several different compact flo bulbs and a megaman dimmer bulb, but they all do it.

    Anyone got an ideas?

    According to the spec sheet "25W to 500W, for control of permanently installed incandescent lamp fixtures only" So I guess no CFLs.
    IF YOU CAN'T FIX IT WITH A HAMMER, YOU'VE GOT AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM.

    What is the wattage of the light bulbs? Make sure it is not below 25W

    Also, depending on some conditions like wall material, heat dissipation...etc the max wattage would be attenuated to less than 500W. Try to stick to no more than 450W or if you could, even lower.
