I come over from Fine Woodworking.
Here is my problem. I have a dimmer switch that keeps on going bad. I buy the 600 watt single pole switch and it fails after a couple months. It is a simple switch that goes to a simple overhead chandeler. I have a draw of about 300 watts (6 lamps at 50 watts each, no fan attached). All is well for two months then all [email protected] breaks loose. When you turn it on it is like a lightening storm, WOW (lights flicker bright and low then settle out at high when I turn it all the way up).
I’m not sure if anything is wrong or am I just buying a cheap switch ($10 at HD).
Any help would be great,
Is it really saw dust or wood dust?
