    HiHat buzzing after caseta dimmer installed

    I have a Feit electric ledr56/927/mp/6 hihat where buzzing is heard after installing Caseta in-wall dimmer. There are 4 x hihats in the ceiling. This was the only one buzzing.

    It only started buzzing when I installed a caseta dimmer. I have the same exact configuration in another room and 1 out of those 4 hihats are buzzing. Is it the bulb, hihat? Is there anything I can do?

    Thanks for the reply!
    I'm using the Caseta Wireless Smart Lighting Dimmer Switch and Remote Kit for Wall & Ceiling Lights, P-PKG1W-WH.

    Found on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Strange enough, it works in master bedroom with 5 x Feit electric ledr56/927/mp/6 hihats and there's no buzzing. It was a 3-way switch and I replaced the other switch with the Pico remote and wall bracket.
    It's the other two bedrooms w/4 x hihats where I'm running into the buzzing problem.

    There's a sweet spot for the CL dimmer sometimes. For your Feits, 4 is a bad number apparently. You should try the PD10NXDWH with the neutral wire (if you have neitrals in your boxes). Should quiet the Feits down. I's try one first as to not waste $$ if it doesn't work. Otherwise, you'll need to look for a more compatible LED bulb.
