Make shouldn't have anything to do with it, just a faulty switch, our electrician sprayed some kind of silicone oil on to ours a few years back and we haven't heard a buzzing since, it does clunk when it switches off in the morning.

Thanks a lot for all your replies,

WW, our interrupteur is a 'HAGER et221 24021', installed when our local leccy did our wiring,( is that a decent marque in your opinion?) I will try to 'capture' him (the leccy), to see if he has any suggestions.

Ours clicks on and off and buzzes a bit too. It's a 3 year old box of the most expensive kind....still does it !

PS - it's nothing to do with Va et vient - that's a 2-way switch!!

The interrupteur HC/HP is the problem - sometimes these do buzz when operationg especially if they are a cheap make.

Simply changing the unit will normally stop it.

Yes.Very slight buzzing but not enought to stop me sleeping.It is quite a loud click when it clicks on and off to.Mine has been like this since it was installed 8 yrs ago.

Thanks for the reply Jon, do you have 'buzzing' too while it's on?
