Question about Electrical Supplies
This is caused by the neon bulb that is used in most slide dimmer switches, it is normal and doesn't mean anything is wrong with your dimmer. The flickering is because the neon bulb doesn't have the usual filament, but used neon gas to cause the light to glow.
The bulb is used as a locater light for nightime so you can more easily find the switch in the dark. When the light switch is turned on, the neon bulb typically isn't lit.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!
