I have a kitchen chandelier with 5 lights. This is controlled 2 ways: 1st by a 2 way switch on either entrance to kitchen and
2nd by a dimmer switch. The chandelier was wired to an existing dimmer 4 years ago and everything worked fine. Now when I turn on chandelier by dimmer switch, 1 to 2 minutes later, I noticed the plate was getting warm. I took off the plastic front plate and the metal front plate of dimmer was getting hot. I immediately turned it off. We thought the problem was the dimmer so we bought a new one and installed it but it still gets hot.
I can't use it like this, what could be the problem?
