Answer: 
The connections are probably not screwed together tight enough. We had that happen as well.

Answer: 
Hello! Yes this rope light is dimmable with most standard incandescent dimmers. Because it is designed for 120v plug in applications, I would suggest using a plug in dimmer, like this model: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Lutron-Credenza-300-Watt-Plug-In-Lamp-Dimmer-White-TT-300NLH-WH/100145680

18 ft. Clear Incandescent Rope Light Kit is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 112.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from I love these lights. They were easy to install and they give off a warm background illumination. ... I love these lights. They were easy to install and they give off a warm background illumination. I used them in a pantry to provide nice lighting for the items hidden in the back. They only problem I have is the lights have a really bad odor. My wife thinks it is making her sick and wants me to remove them. Of course I don't want to as I put some labor into installing them. There is an odor from the plastic rope that gives off that new plastic smell. I thought it would go away but after 10 days is still there. I may try to take them down and put outside for awhile. I have a couple of these strands daisy chained together.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great rope lights I bought a string of these years ago to light the eaves over my patio. They have worked outdoors without fail ever since and throw off enough gentle light that I can read a newspaper. But they are not harsh. Obviously, in this application you can see them; if used as I think they were originally designed under kitchen cabinets or hidden, you would not see anything but a continuous strip of light. Recently I added a 6' section. Very easy to install and add, simply unscrewing the cord/plug from the light strip and screwing it into the end of the existing light strip, as it was designed for this purpose. I like these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Vacation Bible School Decor I ordered these rope lights for our Vacation Bible School Decor. (I ordered four boxes). When we were all set up, we realized we didn't need these rope lights. So, I will be returning them. But, if we needed them for our project we definitely would have kept them. I ordered them online and they were delivered very quickly and were well-packaged. I really appreciate the customer service representative when I called and asked if I could return them. I'm very impressed with the way she handled the call and my questions.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor hardware kit The plastic mounting clips are a complete fail in two areas: 1. There are not enough clips to provide adequate support along a horizontal installation. Spacing needs to be around 12" o.c. to avoid drooping rope. The clips provided are only enough to allow spacing at 24"o.c/ and there are no extras....which leads to the prime problem 2. The plastic from which the clips are cast is too brittle to allow the rope to be clipped in w/o breaking the clip. I lost 75% of the clips to breakage, and as noted above, there are no spare provided. Calls to the HD customer service line for this product offered only a replacement hardware packet - more of the same worthless clips....back they went to the store.... Commercial Electric has a dirrernt clip for the outdoor LED rope which is far m

Commercial Electric has a dirrernt clip for the outdoor LED rope which is far more pliable and accepts the rope w/o breaking. Again however, they do not provide enough clips.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dependable rope lights This is my 2nd set of this product. I bought the 1st 12 years ago and it lasted 8 years. A couple of failed LED sets in the last couple of years brought me right back to these. I have them in my porch and use them all year long, exposed to Minnesota temperatures ranging from 25 below zero to 100 degrees. The LEDs (connections) couldn't handle it but these are durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great investment We have had many rope lights before but this brand was by far the cheapest to purchase and the best. It is cooler to the touch than previous brands so if you are installing inside it won't heat up the room. Also very easy to connect several together.
