Modules Turn On Immediately After Being Turned Off
Why does my Lamp or Appliance Module turn on immediately after being turned off?
Why does a low-wattage light connected to my Lamp or Appliance Module flicker after being turned off?
This is usually caused by the lamp or appliance being controlled by the X10 module (fluorescent lamps are common culprits).
There are components in X10 modules that detect the switching of the physical switch on the controlled device. With certain devices, false signals are generated (usually from a dissipating charge), which trigger the local control feature in the module.
To fix this problem:
- Plug a cube tap/plug splitter into the the X10 module.
- Plug a 7 Watt night light into the same cube tap as the offending light/appliance.
