I have two GE dimmer switches. The first one installed was 12729 which is a conventional “pole” stile light switch. I put this in my wife’s office and it works great. Click up and immediately the ramp up starts to last brightness. Works great.
So I bought another switch for the room outside her office. A GE 12724 which is a “paddle” style switch. When I click the on, there is a 2-3 second delay before ramp up. When clicking on, the LED bulbs come on at their VERY minimum brightness (even lower than the lowest I can set it to with the switch or app), then a 2ish second delay, then the ramp up to last brightness begins.
I have tried the “Dimmer Fix” apps, but they seem to only affect the ramp speed and interval. In fact, I don’t see any setting for initial delay in the manual for the switch.
Anyone else with this issue, or ideas?
EDIT: It should be noted that it only does this after the switch has been inactive for over a minute (or so). If I just click it on and off repeatedly, it works as expected. Almost as if it is somehow “asleep”.
