So these have been fitted recently in the front room replacing the old lights.
Each line of three can be dimmed seperatley if needed.
But sometimes we notice that one light may flicker dimmer than the others and after a short while come back to full brightness.
They don't flicker all the time and it's not the same light that does it.
Any ideas that might be causing this ?

We had a similar problem last year and I traced it to water in the driver unit - leaky roof.

It could be a number of things, mostly a case of try this and try that.

I have to ask is the dimmer switch compatible with LED lamps (Not all are)
What are the lamps?
Have you checked all the connections?
