I am plugging a 12v CPU fan into a 12v power adapter, but starting the fan is flickering the lights. How should I fix this?
If something drawing a few 10's of mA can cause your house lights to flicker, you have a serious problem with your house wiring. Since you're asking very basic questions, you aren't qualified to troubleshoot the problem.It's only flickering the house lights while starting. While running, the lights don't flicker.
Then start looking for a poor wiring configuration. Something is loose somewhere. A simple light load should not create a flickering light(s) issue. Now if you have no understanding of branch circuits or how things work I suggest you find a competent qualified electrician to review the problem.
