Question

I just installed track lighting in my home.
There is a 10' track with 10 halogen lights on it, 500 watts total. I also have a dimmer on it that can handle 600 watts. My problem is that there is a constant humming sound coming from the lights and the dimmer switch.Can someone help me to stop the humming?
Thank you, Bernie

Bernie,
your problem lies in using the wrong dimmer.
On the transformer which is the large white box that is attached to the track will be a model number of the appropriate dimmer. The dimmer is usually also made by the track manufacturer.
any other dimmer will cause a hum.
