dimmer switches

can anybody help me, i have undercupboard lighting and downlighters in the ceiling all from 1 double switch. the downlighters are dimmable but the undercupboard striplights are not. i am trying to find a double switch that has a dimmer and an ordinary on/off on the same switch. the origanal switch has two dimmer type swiches with the undercupboard one made to just switch on/off, but this has started to fizz..thanks

Do you have two separate switches, the dimmer and a simple snap switch on two yokes? (two gang box). If you only have one switch for both (single gang box) on one yoke, I would try googling switches + electrical. I have never seen a dimmer and a snap switch on the same yoke (together as one device).
Someone here will be able to assist you. Just keep an eye on this post.
