SOURCE: flickering

#1 cause is a bad lamp,try changing that 1st, 2nd if they are two lamp fixtues you ballast could be going bad/or is. Another solution could be you have a loose common/neutral which is normally the white wire @ the light itself of if it is junctioned @ your switch. I would check those items befor spending the money for a new switch. hope this helps.

SOURCE: using this dimmer on an outlet that has dimmable

Yes this is not unusual. Any triac conrol device must have a load large enough to turn it off. I have some switches operating compact flourescnts that do the same thing. My cure was to add one incandescent lamp on same switch, and my load devices work fine too.

Must I replace its 100 watt Sylvania incandescent bulb with another incandescent? What about an equivalent CFL or LED bulb?


Both will work fine as long as the light isn't on a dimmer. You can't dim CFL bulbs.

If you do have a dimmer, you can dim LED bulbs as long is you buy dimmable LED bulbs.

My led lights start to strobe when I turn on exterior light that is fed from the same line circuit. Solution?


There are two things coming into play here; the lamps and the dimmer(s).

First; LED and CFL type lamps that are to be used on a dimmer switch - must be identified for that use. Looks for the word dimmable on the packaging or bulb itself. These lamps are generally a little more expensive than their non-dimmable counterparts. If it does not indicate it is dimmable, then it isn't - and should not be installed on a circuit controlled by a dimmer switch.

Second; a dimmer switch that will be used to control LED and CFL bulbs (that are identified for use with a dimmer) must also be identified for use with dimmable LED and CFL bulbs. Again, these dimmer switches will be identified for this use and will cost more than those that work with standard filament type bulbs.

Lutron has dimmers for your circuit called a "C•L™ Dimmer" and supports Incandescent / Halogen, Dimmable Compact Fluorescent (CFL) and Dimmable Light Emitting Diodes (LED) type lamps. have a look here:
Lutron Maestro Dimmer and Switch Models

Also, be wary of the total load (wattage) of the lamps being controlled. If you have multiple dimmers in the same box, derating of the switch's wattage capacity (due to increased heat) will be required.

I have 2 led transforms connected to a toggle switch. Can I put a toggle dimmer 600W controlling these transforms?


That depends on several things. Some LED power supplies are not dimmable, and will flash instead of dim properly when used with a dimmer. Many will work just fine. There are also specialty dimmers that are designed to work with transformers, though I've not found them much different.

Can I use a dimmer switch with light bulbs whose packaging makes no mention of whether or not the bulb is "dimmable"? (be they incandescent, CFL or LED)


Most old dimmer switches do not work with energy saving/led bulbs, they will work fine with the old style filament bulbs, the newer dimmer switches will be compatible with energy saving bulbs and will indicate on the packaging!

If the legrand dimmer 400w - pro21 can function with led dimmable light "philips master led spot "


The answer is NO. You need a Trailing Edge dimmer to control LEDs.

The Phillips master LED spot manual says
:
Lighting controls: bulbs are dimmable 20-100% with ""select"" Trailing Edge RC devices
http://www.prismaecat.lighting.philips.com/FredhopperPDFWebServiceInter/docts/1d8ea75f-e889-424d-92dc-450fbeb85f6a/Smart_LED_Spot_da.pdf

The Legrand pro21 manual does not say anything about being a Trailing edge dimmer.
http://www.legrand.com.gr/gr/gr/liblocal/internet_greece/PDFS/NOTICES/IOBL/ROOSTATES/775637EN.pdf

Legrand diagrams show what appears to be incandescent bulbs, and say nothing about LEDs

LEDs cannot be dimmed as ordinary incandescent (tungsten) bulb.
