    Unhappy Buzzing: Philips 455469 + Lutron P-PKG1W-WH

    I recently installed twenty nine P-PKG1W-WH dimmers in combination with previously owned Philips 455469 dimmable LED bulbs. They all buzz...quite a bit. It's maddening! While I now see that this bulb is not listed on your compatibility sheet (wish I had known this before installation), replacing close to 100 LED bulbs is quite the expensive endeavor. Is there any other way to stop the buzzing noise beyond replacing either the dimmers or the bulbs? If the only way is a bulb or dimmer replacement, would you please recommend an A19 2700k dimmable 90+ CRI LED bulb (I'm flexible on the lumens) that will work with the P-PKG1W-WH dimmer?
    Thank you,
    Justin

    Will an LUT-MLC help? I have a neutral wire available for use.

    The LUT-MLC is not rated for use with a dimmer, only the PD-5WS-DV switch.

    Good afternoon emailchaos. We are sorry to hear about the buzzing you are experiencing with your Caseta dimmers. Unfortunately we do not have a fix for the buzzing other than changing the LEDs or the dimmers. To find an LED that works with Caseta dimmers we would suggest using our LED product selection tool which can be found at www.lutron.com/ledtool.

    1. Under Fixture/Lamp Type, Select “A Lamp”
    2. Under Lutron Control, Select the “Caseta Dimmer”
    3. You do not need to make any other selections, but you can select a preferred manufacturer to get a smaller list
    4. Click on the orange Search button
    5. The page will refresh, Scroll down
    6. A table will appear with a list of all the LED lights we have tested for your product
    7. In the third column of each row, there is a PDF link to a report card on each LED fixture

    Selecting and interpreting the report card:
    1. If you would like to view the report card of a bulb, click on the orange PDF link in the third column of the table, under the Product Name heading.
    2. A new window will open, this is the Lutron Product Report Card.
    3. In the heading, you will see information about the bulb, including make and model number.
    4. Below this you will see a table. Buzzing results may be listed in the right hand column under “Comments”
    5. Below the table you will see “Test comments” Buzzing results may be listed here if buzzing was seen with most controls.

    Unhappy

    Thank you, @Jai H. Unfortunately, the number of bulbs tested with the Caséta Dimmer are quite low, comparatively speaking. Also, there don't seem to be any LED bulbs listed that meet the criteria I defined in my original post.

    Hello emailchaos. We are sorry you were not able to find an LED that met all of your criteria. The next best tool we have left to use would be our LED short list. Please follow this link.
