Well, a little ordeal scared me. I turned on a dimmer lightswitch in my house. I was alerted with flickering lights, an awful hissing, and...you guessed it. electrical smoke. YUCK! I can smell it everywhere! I hate it.


Anyone got any insence?

you're lucky. my wife had a house fire from some bad wiring in a place she was renting before we were married. luckily she wasn't home and everyone else got out ok (and someone thought to save her cello).

i'm glad you weren't hurt and it didn't lead to something worse. get it replaced, quick.
