How can I stop an "endless dim" with my Firecracker kit?

Answer

A dim that does not stop is usually caused by electrical noise on your house wiring, causing a feedback loop somewhere between the TM751 or RR501 Transceiver Module and the lamp or wall switch module being controlled. The fault can be in the transceiver module, the switch, or the wiring between the two. If you unplug the Transceiver while a lamp is dimming, does it stop? If so, try moving the Transceiver to a different outlet (preferably on a different circuit), and try again. If moving the transceiver fixes the problem, the electrical noise is in the outlet/circuit where the transceiver was plugged.
