Answer: 
It would be worth a try. Mine did not flicker however it appears all LED lights are not created equal. Maybe you can work the problem backwards. Find out what light you have and contact the manufacturer of the light to find out who they recommend.

Answer: 
What makes dimming LEDs so difficult is that there is currently no standard within the industry and so everyone is manufacturing LEDs very differently from each other. Because of this, between all of the LEDs out there, they will all dim down to different levels and will all have a different dimming performance. Some LEDs may become unstable when they reach a certain point, so it is hard to say whether Read More
What makes dimming LEDs so difficult is that there is currently no standard within the industry and so everyone is manufacturing LEDs very differently from each other. Because of this, between all of the LEDs out there, they will all dim down to different levels and will all have a different dimming performance. Some LEDs may become unstable when they reach a certain point, so it is hard to say whether or not a DVWCL-153PH will fix the issues you are seeing. One advantage, however, is that it includes a low end trim adjustment. Because of the differences in LEDs, you can adjust how low this dimmer will go to customize it to fit the bulbs being used. This may help erase out any instability these LEDs have when you get down to low end. Read Less

Note that some bulbs on this list however may have a slight buzz. That being said, it does not appear we have done any testing on the LED being mentioned and because of that it would be very hard to say how well the dimming performance would be. Without testing, we can really only suggest contacting the LED manufacturer who has most likely done their own testing to determine what dimmers will work, and how well they will work. Read Less

Answer: 
If it glows all the time you probably have a bad switch. I noticed mine will glow for a short period of time after I shut them off. I would imagine it is just the LED unit cooling down.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 44 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Wall Dimmer The DIVA wall dimmer did a good job in dimming two LED lights. The LED lighting manufacturer had a list of approved vendors. This helped me in selecting this unit. The only down side is it does not dim the lights very much. It worked ok for our application. If you were doing a movie theater it would not have worked. August 30, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average switch but some things to consider. Purchased this to add dimming feature in our bedroom. A couple of things to note. The quality of the switch seems fair but the dimming slider feel like a loose flaky piece of plastic. It doesn't feel solid as I would expect. To be fair, I am used to the older rotary style dimmers and this is the first dimmer of this style that I have used. The actual unit seems to be a little bit bulkier and deeper than the original regular switch. This posed a bit of a problem for me since the electrical box for the switch is a standard sized one, not a wider or deeper style box. I tried my best to get the wires/wire nuts tucked away to fit the switch in the electrical box. My best effort failed to keep the switch plate completely flush against the wall so there is not a small gap. Unfortunately, the biggest issue is that this switch does not work properly with the LED bulbs that I have installed. I have (2) lamps in the bedroom controller by this switch. The dimmer function only seems to dim one of the them, the other is not affected. Again, to be fair, this is not necessarily a problem with this switch. Dimmer switches and LED bulb compatibility seems to be an issue with many switch and LED bulb combinations. I found the following website which seems to have some good information if you're trying to find a combination that is compatible. I need to do more testing to have a better understand of which dimmer plays nice with the LED bulbs that I have already invested in. https://www.polar-ray.com/kbase/LED_Lighting_Dimming_Guide/trouble-dimming-my-led-lights.html August 23, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Best part - it works! And it was easy to wire. Because I switched from incandescent to CFL my OLD dimmer no longer worked. August 25, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by reliable switch Good switch . The for this type of switch is a little high. June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Improvement from the switch I bought 5 years ago Easy switch to install and threeway option is a great addition. Installed with a fan which does not like the dimmer aspect when spinning but works great with the light. Make sure you get dimmable (sp) bulbs! June 30, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Perfect I purchased this dimmer switch to power new under (kitchen) cabinet LED lamp fixtures. My old dimmer worked with an old style florescent fixture only to turn off/on, but not dim. This switch was easy to install and works perfectly, allows us to control the degree of light, and there is no humming noise to contend with. I particularly like that the brightness is controlled by a separate small slider, so that once set, the on/off function works independently with the tap of a finger. June 7, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by It dims LEDs, but interferes with AM radio This dimmer does an OK job of dimming my LED can lights. The screw-less diva plate is interesting, but I didn't need it. (You can install a regular plate.) My issue with this dimmer is it causes quite a bit of AM radio interference, more than another LED dimmer from the other "L" brand. I know dimmers are known to cause this kind of problem, but this one seems excessive. See video and turn up the volume to hear the buzz on my AM radio. March 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A necessary purchase with LED lighting. A typical electric switch hookup. Remove the old toggle switch and add the dimmer by connecting to the original wiring. No additions or changes needed. February 15, 2016
