If the lights in your house are fluctuating between bright and dim, you could have a more serious problem on your hands. You might have a loose or corroded neutral wire in your circuit breaker.
Old, damaged, or poorly installed wiring is a common cause of dimming house lights, and can be one of the more dangerous causes. Contact points for your house wiring and your fixture can become corroded over time, leading to poor conductivity and intermittent dimming.
Dim lights can be the result of several things. Check all transformer and light fixture connections to make sure everything is tight. Be sure the cable is tightly fastened to the transformer. An overloaded line can also result in dim lights.
The amount of heat and light it produces is proportional to the resistance of the wire, which is proportional to the thickness of the wire. As the bulb ages, the wire gets thinner, so its resistance rises, so its light output rises.
Adaptive Brightness is a feature on both old and new Android phones that automatically adjusts your screen`s brightness based on the ambient lighting conditions. It makes it easier to read your phone in different lighting environments with the added advantage of conserving battery life.
Dusk to dawn lights typically create two levels of light, a dim or low level of light when no motion is detected and the full amount of light when motion is detected.

Wont run, not getting fuel. disconnected fuel filter, still nothing. Can spray a shot of carb cleaner directly into carb, and will run until it burns the fuel then dies. Check and getting good spark.
ANSWER : You say it’s not getting fuel? when you bypassed the filter was gas coming out of the fuel line right where it connects to the carb? If it runs on ether, carb cleaner or pouring fuel in the carb then your problem wont be the the carb or motor it will be something like a cracked, dryrotted or pinhole in the fuel line. Or something restricting the flow from the tank to the carb.

When I try to pull the rope to start the leaf blower, the engine freezes up and the line gets stuck. When I remove the spark plug and perform the same action, I have no problem. It seems as if it is in a vacuum and can’t get any air. I’ve cleaned the air filter and get the same results. I even removed the filter and get the same results. I’ve taken apart down to the engine and all seems to be in good order. Nothing is frozen. Help.
ANSWER : Check that the plug is not too long for the head and is hitting on the piston

Have a craftsman 16″ chain saw 358.360260. Could not initially get it started after it had sat for a couple years with fuel stabilizer in it. When I went to use it the fuel had all evaporated and the fuel pick line was rotted. I replaced that with some difficulty but finally got it on. Saw still wouldn’t start. Replaced the fuel filter. Still wouldn’t start. Pulled the carb apart and cleaned and recleaned everything. Diaphragms were good and I didn’t adjust any of the mixture screws because as I said it ran fine before storage. Non of the carb passages were clogged. Fresh gas 40:1, good spark plug and good spark. Airfilter is good. Engine has maybe about 4 hours of total run time on it. It’s a ZAMA (?) carb. It will run for about 30 seconds when I manually prime it by pouring a small amount of fuel directly though the carb. When I was disassembling the carb the vent hose that goes back into the fuel tank seemed to have a small out of ?substance? in it which I cleaned out. It was right at the end the of the hose that goes back into the fuel tank and not up by the carb. It didn’t appear to be like your typical gummy deposits/varnish though. I hope it wasn?t some type of spongy check valve stuff that is supposed to be in there. That might explain some of my problems. Anyway, I also can not seem to get the primer bulb to fill. When I open the fuel tank, look in side and depress the primer bulb, air bubbles come out of the fuel filter. But when I let the bulb reexpand there’s no fuel that gets sucked up the hose. I can however seem to fill the primer bulb when the fuel tank is full and the chainsaw is laying on it?s pull cord side and the bulb is depressed a bunch of times. The saw will also start and run again for about 15 seconds then die. It’s definitely not getting/fuel and probably running out . Thanks.

I have a poulan pro classic chain saw PP4620 AV 46 cc ,20 ” i have had it a couple years…problem…it almost sounds like it is bogging down for lack of power when running, will not idle, can be used if babied, and know the right tricks…seems if can ever get it to top speed it will run there but let it get below that it takes choking it, and feathering th throttle to get it back to that. is it a fuel mixture problem or does the carb need adjusting ? i have the throttle screw almost all the way out to get it to run as much as it does…the h igh a low adjustments appear to take a special tool to adjust…..what say u
ANSWER : If you did nothing to the carburetor adjustments, are using a fresh (3 months or less) fuel mix with the same oil/fuel ratio, are operating at the same elevation, and the air filter is clean, there is a reason your saw is acting up. There may be a fuel delivery problem. Check the fuel filter on the free end of a hose in fuel tank (manufacturer recommends an annual replacement). Check all fuel delivery lines especially at fittings and bends for cracks and holes. If those are good then the likely cause is internal parts of the carburetor are dirty or have failed. Maybe time for a tune up, $40± @ my local Stihl dealer. If you have this done ask what oil/fuel ratio they used and continue with that ratio until your next tune up. Thank the EPA for the adjustment limiters. HTHLou

Toro-Model 20041 – Won’t start. Serial Number 250086738. Purchased 7/24/05 from Home Depot, Fairfax, VA 222030. Used only on our home lawn (1/4 acre), mowing once weekly; serviced annually. Most recently serviced 3/19/11 at which time: spark plug replaced; oil changed, new air filter and new blade installed. Lawn mowed weekly commencing 4/1/11, without any problems and lawn last mowed 7/6/11. This evening, 7/14, after checking the oil and ensuring adequate gasoline, I was not able to get the mower started. I primed it, as usual; tried several times again, but the mower failed to start. It seemed it wasn’t getting a spark. Pulling the cord was easy, as has always been the case. Can you suggest any trouble-shooting a rank amateur can do, short of taking it back to where I had it serviced less than four months ago? (As an 82 year old, I can no longer can heave the mower in the back of the car to get it back and forth from where I annually get it serviced.) I will appreciate any tips or advice you can offer. THANKS. Don Driscoll
