Lighting – Will a non-dimmable LED work if the dimmer switch is on full


If a dimmer switch is fitted for the room but we get non-dimmable LED lamps (GU10), I know there may be flickering problems with dimming, but will they work fine if the dimmer is turned to max?

Best Answer

Yes, LED bulbs typically work fine on dimmers set to max. In my experience, even the "non-dimmable" ones don't seem to be harmed when dimmed although your mileage here may vary with bulb and dimmer models.

This seems to be a big improvement in comparison with "non-dimmable" CFLs, which seem to be very susceptible to destruction - I have destroyed several after just seconds of dimming.
