    Question on installing a dimmer?

    The ground wire comes into the box and wraps around the green screw and continues on outside the box. Can I cut that in half and piggy on another ground wire for the dimmer?

    Hello! I design and build lamps, which has been a simple task so far, but I've decided to dip my toe into the dubious world of 120v LED PCBs for slimmer designs.

    Is this new ceiling fan compatible with the existing light and fan dimmer control switches?

    Hello, I am a DIY home owner. 1. Are the lights on this ceiling fan able to be dimmed? Do I need special light bulbs for that? Is the light control switch proper? 2. Is the existing fan dimmer switch proper to this ceiling fan? 3. If it is dimmable, what kind of lightbulbs do I need to buy?

    Dimmer lights coming on randomly.
