    Problem with lights that blink rapidly (incandescent bulbs)

    I have had a caseta switch installed for about a month or two and it worked fine for some time. Then in the last month or so the switch will randomly not work. the led lights on the side of the switch will light up like normal but the light fixture will not turn on or the led's on the side of the switch will go through a cycle where they ramp up as if the light were turning on and then drop down to the lowest end again and repeat itself over and over again, when this happens the light fixture blinks on and off with the switch very rapidly. Any ideas?

    Thanks

    What type of load do you have on the dimmer? How many and what type of bulbs?

    it is a ceiling fan, it has 3 65 watt incandescent bulbs in it. The fan is wired seperate from the light as well so it is just the lights that are on the switch.

    Is the fan switch leg and lighting switch leg share a neutral? (black wire on one, red on the other, and a shared white wire?) If so, the fan may be causing feedback to the dimmer. One of the Lutron-ites should probably weigh in on this for clarification.

    UDJustin,

    What is the model number of the switch being used?
    Have you tried moving the switch to another location to see if the issue follow the switch?
