It sounds like you have indeed bought fluorescent bulbs. manufacturers are encouraged to replace the incandescent bulbs with more energy saving fluorescent bulbs. They are made to look like standard bulbs so you need to look at the package carefully to see the difference. The Nu Tone and other special bulbs may still be available in the old filament style for a while but you may have to look harder or ask if they are still available. The amount of flicker often reflects the quality of the bulb. It will sometimes decrease over time.

Tip

Brake Lights Dull or Flickering - All Cars



Dull or Dim Brake Light Repair: If your car has a dull or dim brake light it is dangerous to you and other drivers. A dim brake light is a mystery to most people because the bulb is working, just not correctly. First confirm a new and correct brake light bulb has been installed. Next, turn the ignition key to the "on" position and have a helper depress the brake pedal. With the bulb installed touch a grounded test light to the outer bulb holder ring. If the bulb brightness changes the bulb socket ground has high resistance and needs to be repaired or replaced.

Flickering Brake Light Bulb Repair: A flickering brake light bulb can be very distracting and annoying. A brake light flickers because the power or ground is being obstructed momentarily. The most common cause for this condition is a loose fitting bulb socket. To check for this condition remove the brake light bulb in question, while a helper hold their foot on the brake pedal move the bulb around slightly in the socket. If the bulb flickers replace or repair the bulb socket as needed to regain proper brake light bulb operation. If the brake light bulb socket tests ok wiggle the brake light fuse and wiring at the brake light bulb socket, brake light switch and turn signal switch (American cars). If the brake light bulb flickers repair the component or wiring as needed.
Preferred Procedure: Always replace brake light bulbs with manufacturers recommend replacement bulbs. If you cannot find the correct replacement bulb part number consult an auto parts store for additional manufacturer information.
Common Problems
When brake light bulbs are replaced with the incorrect bulb causing no or dim brake light operation
If the brake lights stay on continuously it could mean the brake light switch has failed or an adjustment is needed.

How does levition 6696 switch work?


The Leviton 6696 Anywhere RF(Radio Frequency) lighting control allows you to add an additional (wireless) switch to an existing switched light(s) without having to hard wire it. For example, let's say that you have a bedroom with a switched overhead light. The Leviton 6696 RF receiver would be installed in place of the existing light switch. It will still function and is wired the same as an ordinary switch. The Leviton 6696 Anywhere RF transmitter (after installing the batteries) can then be used anywhere within 50 feet of the receiver (that replaced the existing light switch) to also control the light. You don't have to mount the transmitter if you don't want too. It can be on the night stand, (or carry it with you if you want) so you can turn the light ON and OFF from the bed or wherever.

Superswitch programmable wall light switch - when timer is in off position lights glow dim when using energy saving bulbs.


http://www.intermatic.com/products/timers/consumer%20indoor%20timers/in-wall%20timers/ej351c.aspx

Manual say 'incandescent' light bulbs only.

What can I control with my EJ351C? The EJ351C timer is to be used with standard base incandescent light bulbs only! It should not be used to control lighting such as:
  • Compact Florescent
  • Energy Saver
  • Flood lights
  • Halogen
  • Mercury Vapor
  • Christmas lights
  • Candelabra bulbs

I bought dimmable energy saver bulbs and when I put the dimmer about half way down they flicker or go off. Why do they do that?


If the saver bulbs are of Fluorescent lamps type, they can not go to 0 even to 30% (depending on mains voltage: for 240V mains the range is bigger), because they need minimal voltage of about 80-100 V in order to keep the electrical arc. They vary the light level, but if by a normal dimmer give them less than about 80-100 V (max value), they will go out.
You have about 80% iconomy(compared to normal incadescent lamps) at rated voltage and it can be rased to 90 - 92% at minimum light, but not more.

You should use a special diimer if you wish to use the whole range for dimming.

The EJ500C is designed only for standard incandescent lights, not chandelier bulbs, CFLs, etc. Replace it with the ST01C, and you'll be fine. Intermatic may even exchange it for you if you if you complain to them.

New Leviton 'lighted, decorative' switch flickers when off


You cannot use standard electronic dimmer switches with CFL bulbs, only incandesant bulbs! That is why you are getting the flickering.

With CFL's bulbs installed in a light fixture that has a non-flouresant rated dimmer switch on that circuit, you will cause the standard dimmer to fail.

You have to look at the dimmer package (sometimes printed on the back of the dimmer itself too) to see if it can be used with CFL bulbs,as many are not rated for use with anything other than standard incandesant bulbs.


Hope you found this very helpful and best regards!

Hampton Bay 54" Covington Ceiling Fan light problem


Solids state fan controls don't work correctly with fluorescent bulbs. If you check the tail end of you remote's instructions it will say something like "Max light watts: 300 (incandescent only). So replace your energy saver bulbs with 60 watt "regular" bulbs to solve your problem.
