Discuss Flickering lights - bad dimmer? in the Lighting Forum area at ElectriciansForums.net

I have an Elko 315 GLE dimmer rated for 20-300W controlling two ceiling lamps.

Before they used to be lamps with fixed LEDs, but they were flickering a bit and eventually one of them broke, so I replaced both lamps with IKEA Årstid which take 3 x E27 LED bulbs each.

I used some cheap 5.5 W bulbs and flickering persisted. The brightness will also go up and down a bit seemingly at random, especially when the lights are dimmed to lower brightness levels.

I then replaced all bulbs with more expensive Osram 7 W, but the problem remains the same.

Any ideas what the problem might be? I'm suspecting it has something to do with the dimmer, or I'm using the wrong type of bulbs maybe? The dimmer is only about a year old.

All help appreciated!
