    Question Dimming / off issues. Lutron

    I have 3 lights and 3 dimmers. Lights will dim but not
    Go off. They are LED daylight and box says dimmable.
    Then I changed out 2 to halogen and left one high Bulb LED
    Because I couldn't get to it. Now they all turn off
    Why does it work now?
    And actually I like the LED daylight bulbs better. Why don't they work.

    Hello Leaddoris. Can you provide the model number of the dimmer you are using? It sounds like you either have a digital dimmer or an analog dimmer with a nightlight feature. Both of these types of controls will have a small amount of current flowing in the off state. Some LEDs will react to this by glowing when the circuit is turned off. There is no safety concern with this happening. The reason the circuit shut off when halogens were introduced is because halogens are resistive by nature, and they will absorb that little bit of current that is present in the off state.

    Depending on what control you have, will determine the best course of action to solve the problem.
