It's not the wiring. It's the LEDs themselves. LEDs have a characteristic delay when turning them on which may be more than you're used to from a lifetime of incandescent bulbs. Swap the LEDs from one position to another, and the problem should move with the bulb. Replace the LED with the equivalent incandescent (temporarily) and it should go away ...

Both safety and aesthetic. It keeps fingers from touching the circuit which is most likely directly connected to the mains (no isolation). Removing it would create a serious safety hazard.

It sounds like it's not the LEDs but it may be your night light sensor is going out. Try it with a regular lamp to test the sensor. If it works then it may be the LED lmaps. If it's the same and the fixtur is still under warrenty return it for a new one. If it is too old you could, if it's removable, change to sensor out. The new sensor will need to be LED ...

That is fundamentally correct for the time the lights are on, yes. It will depend on the specific LEDs and ballasts chosen (the ballast may or may not be part of the fixture, and some cheesy outfits try to give the lumens per watt INTO the LED itself, ignoring the watts wasted in the ballast converting from AC to DC.) @Tester101's "wire heating" strawman ...

See Lutron's list of compatible dimmable LEDs. Refer to pages 19-36 for the CL series dimmers. I do not see any G7 bulbs listed. I would say either your bulbs aren't compatible with your dimmer, or you got a bad dimmer. Try swapping out whichever is easiest (the bulbs or the dimmer) first, and if that doesn't work try swapping the other.

Dimming LEDs For a typical ceiling fan, the light fixture is exactly that-- a light fixture. It is nothing more than wires, a chain switch, and bulb socket(s). Dimming LED bulbs in a typical ceiling fan fixture will be completely dependent on ensuring a few things: The LED bulbs are dimmable The dimmer switch is rated for use with dimmable LED bulbs The ...

Longevity: LED's are generally marketed between 50k-100k hours of burn-time. I installed them throughout my home 18 months ago; none of them have failed yet. Grime Resistance: For a kitchen, buy waterproof strip lights like these - they'll hold up against steam. You can also fabricate an easy-to-clean cover using clear PVC and brackets Heat: If the strips ...
