Thanks for the feedback. Do ya'll know what the warranty on these GE dimmers are? I bought mine from SmartHomeUSA, still need to see what their return policy is.

not the best way, but do yourself a favor if you have a lot of the GE switches. Purchase one of them from a local radio shack and keep your receipt... This way if a switch does fail return it to radio shack for a new one and not mail one out and wait for the return.

I've had the opposite experience with GE/Jasco switches.

Granted, I'm using the on/off 45609 vs. the Dimmer 45606 devices, but I have more than 12 of them, I've had them since March of this year, and I have yet to experience a problematic one in the lot.

How long after you installed them did they begin to fail?
