    "Dead travel" syndrome with a replacement LED dimmer (line voltage, single pole). Ceiling lamp uses four 6.5 w led bulbs. Old one worked fine but changed switch color, new one dims either high or low. What happened? Unfortunately, threw out old one. Would appreciate any help, thanks.

    Hi..what i have observed is many people think of SSL as being fully dimmable, an expectation that gets reinforced to varying degrees by manufacturer claims. In theory, LEDs are easily and fully dimmable, because unlike some other kinds of light sources there’s nothing inherent in their makeup that would impede the dimming process.
