    Maestro Switch failure - 2 bulbs pulse

    I have 3 banks of LED pots, controlled by 3 Maestro switches. They have worked perfectly for 5-6+ years. Today, one of the switches would not turn on (green indicator is on the lowest setting). Two of the LED bulbs are now pulsing (8 bulbs in the bank and the pulsing bulbs are in opposite corners).Does this indicate the switch has reached end of life? If one bulb were to have failed, would this cause the issue? Thanks

    The reason will vary depending on the type of dimmer you have. If you have an incandescent dimmer (like MA-600), losing 1 bulb could drop it below the minimum load. If you have a LED dimmer (like MACL-153), minimum load shouldn't be an issue. If you replaced a bulb, even with the same make & model, it could have different electronics and that might cause an issue.

    If you have an LED dimmer and the issues only occur at very high and very low levels you can adjust the trim to eliminate the issue.
