When I turn on a light, the glow ring flashes orange and the light turns off or dims.
The maximum load the Lightpad can handle is 400 watts for incandescent bulbs and 150 for LED & CFL. If the Lightpad is set up as a switch only, The light will turn off if the max load exceeds 400/150 watts.
If the Lightpad is in dimmer mode, the lights will dim to a level below 400 watts.
Try reducing the load by using bulbs with a lower rating. If you are using Incandescent bulbs try switching to LED or CFL.
If the Lightpad has been derated by removing the metal fins on the side and you are using Incandescent bulbs, then you should reduce the max load by 50 watts per side removed.
One side removed = 350 watts max load.
Both sides removed = 300 watts max load.
LED and CFL bulbs do not require a reducing the max load and remains the same 150 watts.
