I just installed the Lutron DVCL-153P-WH Diva Dimmable CFL/LED Dimmer for my basement with 5 Philips BR30 LED bulbs and I am now noticing a slight buzz in each of the lights.
I have been reading your forums and I see that most of the time it is because I am using an incompatible LED bulb for this dimmer. The reason I bought this particular dimmer is because people on Amazon were saying they purchased this exact model for the Philips 452268 BR30 and it works great. Now, I don't know if those people are deaf or what, but that buzzing is annoying.
These bulbs say they are compatible with "most" dimmers, I guess yours isn't one of them.
The information I could not find on your product page is whether or not these are using a zero-cross detection dimmer type of technology or just a regular chopper circuit??? I have been told that the proper way is to have a zero-cross detection dimmer, which uses 3-wires besides the ground to hookup (not a 3-way switch), the third being a common. I did not have this third wire in my existing light switch, but I am wondering if your dimmer supports that.
The second question is will this buzz damage my 5 LED bulbs or the dimmer switch itself? Is there any type of fire hazard with this?
I need to know this so I can make a decision to return your product or maybe the LED lights themselves.
