X-10 Informative - Warning! X-10 Fire Danger!!!
VISTA, CALIFORNIA -- It is important to note, and SPREAD THE WORD that the X-10 LM465 LAMP MODULE is for INCANDESCENT BULBS ONLY! (As it is marked on the back) As we are all switching to the CFL (Compact Florescent Lamp) bulbs, I used these X-10 modules in ordinary table lamps for a few years with no problems. Recently, I swapped out my regular bulbs to 13 WATT CFL's. I did not think to check the X-10 module for incompatibility. A few months ago, one of the modules burst into flames without warning, luckily only scorching the knotty pine wooden wall but not igniting the upholstered chair just in front of it. I reasoned that the module was defective and replaced it with another, but today a SECOND module (not the replaced unit) burst into flames under a wooden table! I pulled ALL of the remaining modules and noticed that on the back, it reads "FOR INDOOR INCANDESCENT LAMP USE ONLY." Apparently these X-10 modules overheat while lamps with CFL bulbs.
Please check your X-10 modules and REMOVE THEM if you are running CFL bulbs, or switch back to incandescent bulbs for your safety!
