The fixture is 120v and no dimmer. The lights are jacky led brand model x000mfbgh5. Gu10 cob 6w cool

Ok, thanks.Looking over the specifications and the setup, there really is no sound reason to have the problem.Should be able to use all LED and operate perfectly fine.The only thing, i can think of, is for some reason the switch is not allowing the low current through when you have all LED, or bad connections.I would first see if there is any combination that works with LED's in 3 positions but see if it continues no matter which 3 positions.If you have a 2 lead voltage tester, I suggest to install the 3 led and nothing in the 4th position.Then turn on the power and if they are flickering, measure the voltage in the socket without a bulb.If no tester is available, I would pull the light switch and remove the 2 wires form the switch.The connect the 2 wires directly together and turn on power to see the results.If it cures the issue, a new switch is in order. If not, then need to check the connections in the fixture itself.There has to be a voltage swing somewhere causing the problem, just need to find where it is.

I will buy the tester and see what can be done. I will share with you the results in a few days when I return home from work.
