Hi there,
Just installed 8 GU10 down lighters each having a 4w Philips dimmable LED lamp. Installed a Varilight V-PRO 2 gang touch control LED dimmer (min load 10w) (trailing edge)
All was working great until yesterday. Been again to look and cant seem to figure out what is wrong.
1 gang does 4 spots....these work great.
2 gang does the other 4 spots but when turned on the lamps initially flicker, dim up and down, then switch off completley???
Faulty dimmer?
Cant think what else it could be?

Have you tried swapping the banks over on to opposite switches to prove the dimmer?

If not, worth a try for how long it won't take you:thumbsup

Doesn't sound like it's a good match for the load you're trying to control. These dimmers will remember their previous settings. If you've dimmed that second gang less than 10/16th output you'll be below the minimum output for the dimmer.

If you read the dimmer instructions they will say turn lights on full load not half dimmed
