Hello and welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to assist you with your electrical question.

1) What type of light bulbs are you dimming? LED's or another type?

2) If LED"s, are they compatible and listed for use with the dimmer switch? Are the LED's the dimmable type?

3) Any fluorescent light bulbs installed nearby or installed on the same circuit as the dimmer switches??

4) Please provide me with the switch manufacturer name and the dimmer model number?

No need to reply back to me, you will be notified if another expert picks up the question.
