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

Please be patient as it takes time to type and provide links. Also note that the website may be sending you a telephone offer, the offer is not originating from me.

1) What type of light bulbs are you using? LED's or incandescent or CFL or other type? I suspect LED's, is that correct?

2) If using LED bulbs, are the LED's listed and compatible with the Sylvania recessed kit? If the LED's are not compatible with the dimmer switch, they will not work correctly.

3) Is the switch wired as a single pole or as a 3-way switching application?
