Is it my eyes or the lights?

My LED ceiling lights seem to have gradually gotten dimmer in the front room. When comparing the bedroom ceiling lights that are also on a dimmer control, they are bright and white, while the front room's lights are very yellow.

I would think that the problem is the dimmer control. Has anyone had the same problem and a remedy?

Check your battery level. I had that happen and it turned out the batteries were not charging.

Two different color range light. The yellow looking is more a natural or soft white and of course the bright white is just that bright white. I hope this helps, Led's are not know to get that much dimmer.

My battery level is 13.60 volts. I am not implying that the LED elements have gotten dimmer, but the are dimmable by a dimmer control, just as the bedroom lights are. With the dimmer control fully up in the bedroom and front room, there is a noticeable lower light level in the front.

If you are handy with a multi meter you can compare the voltages at both dimmers, sounds like it could be a dimmer switch issue.

For a quick check I would swap the LEDs and see if they look the same. If the light is still dim up front, dimmer issue. If the dim lights are now in the back, the bulbs are possibly going bad or are a different color bulb.

dimmers

You could also switch the dimmer controls.

When I turn on the front lights, they default to a medium brightness. I have to turn them up to get them brighter. Wonder if yours are the same?

I have a slide control and the intensity remains where the slide is positioned. I agree with the suggestions of checking the dimmer control's voltage or swapping with the bedroom control if that is possible because of their ratings. My front room has 14 LED's and the rear, only 4.

Thank's for the suggestions
Hank

A lot if us are having big troubles with defective LED lights on the Legacy and similar due to some defective products. Take off the glass lens and be sure all the LEDs are lit. My 2015 currently has about 9 totally or partially bad lights.
