Nevertheless I don't doubt that my 600W load probably had something to
do with the problem. I will pull out one of the 100W bulbs which I
really don't need, and then eventually replace the rest with 75W which
should be sufficient for this room.
I have a bunch of other 600W Skylarks in my home but thankfully they
are all pushing 300W or less.
Yah this lady had a problem with hers that was pushing 600W when her
husband was home. He liked these lights up all the way and the lights
would periodically go out. She liked the lights around 50% and never
had a problem. I agree Lutron should rerate this model at around 500W!
And that stuff about removing the heatsink tabs lowering the rating
(although they never actually admitted to that it was implied) seemed
totally out of line.
