Can I mix LED lamps with fluorescent or other inductive light sources on 1 dimmer?

No, this will give undesirable effects like flickering.

Why is my dimmer buzzing?

Inside dimmers electronic components are present to prevent flickering and radio disturbances. These components are needed, but can buzz due to their material and physical restrictions. This is a normal behavior. The products are tested on noise level during development and released well below the accepted noise limits standards.

How can I stabilize the light output?
