Hi there, I recently moved to a new apartment, is abt 5 yrs old, the owner build an amazing electricity system (dimmer switches and led spots pretty much in the entire apartment) but I have a very annoying issue: at all dimmable sockets the lamps’ consumption must be at least 20w else the lamp keeps on flickering when turned off.
all the lamps I brought from the previous apartment are LEDs and have about 15-18w, any idea what could I do to increase the W (resistors to pump up the amp or any other suggestions)?

cheers,
Dorin

Are the dimmers are intended for normal bulbs? LEDs use that little power that they won't turn off when set to minimum. I had the same problem in the van, although that was a dc pwm dimmer.
