I installed a new chandelier and dimmer switch. The chandelier houses 24 40w bulbs, so at the reccomendation of the lighting salesman, I bought a 1000W dimmer( plus doing the math it added up!) The light works fine.
However, the dimmer gets hot to the touch. Very hot! I don't think this should happen. I've already thought that I may have gotten a bad dimmer, but I exchanged the dimmer and the same thing continues to happen. What could be causing this? What solutions are there?
