I have an older 60's house which has 1mm wire (black and wire) for the lighting.
I have just put new LED dimmable lights in they have three pin plugs on them.
I have put new sockets into the roof using the 1mm lighting from the switch to the first power point (then new wire after this point), I have then joined the earth off a new circuit about to go in, so the lights can be plugged into the sockets.
I have not connected the earth wire yet as it is going to tee off a new circuit which I need to get the sparky out to connect up.
The electronic dimmers have an on / off function plus hold down to dim up and hold down to dim down.
They have two wires coming out of the dimmer both phase.
I have connected the live to one side of the dimmer then the phase wire going to the sockets on the other side.
I have joined the neutrals where the dimmer is with a screw terminal connector.
1. When I turn off the light with the electronic dimmer, in the dark you can still see a tiny bit of light coming out of the lights, I have replaced the dimmers and it has the same problem.
2. When something else gets turned on in the house the lights flicker, even if they are turned off.
3. The dimmer does not completely dim up and down only about 20% they are meant to go 95%.
I have another circuit which has the earth connected (the lights are plastic and do not have a earth pin on the plug so I don't see how this would matter) to it which is working 100% I cannot understand why this one wont work,
