    Why do my LED lights flicker?

    Common reasons for flickering or flashing LEDs are dimmers, non-compatible transformers or drivers and failed internal electrical components.

    If there are a number of lights which are all flickering in the same manner then it is highly likely that the LEDs are not compatible with the installed dimmer. If there is no dimmer then the LED lamp may not be compatible with the existing or new transformers.

    If there are no dimmers or transformers than you may be experiencing a failed product (usually capacitors internally) or you may be using an automation system like CBus which has a constant 240V line voltage that can cause LEDs to stay on dim or flicker.
