    I have a halogen pole lamp that just went out. I suspect the switch (with dimmer).
    How do I disassemble unit to get to switch?
    What do I look for on switch? (Burnt wire , etc.)
    Is the switch common hardware store item?

    I replaced the bulb (no finger prints) and it blew when I turned unit on.

    Hello,

    You just hijacked an existing thread with a completely different subject.
    Now you have a thread of your own.
