the track lighting that has been up there for at least 3 years now still turns on and off but lost its dimmer control functionality. The switch is a simple lever switch, not a touch switch. Could it of been a spike that may have got it, or transformer for the track light. ??
You mentioned a transformer in the track light. It may be that the dimmer is not the correct kind. If you have electronic transformers in each track head ( like the MR-16 kinds so popular today), then you will need an electronic low voltage dimmer. If it is a large transformer that powers a low voltage bus type track, then you will need a magnetic low-voltage dimmer.
The wrong kind will work for a time, but will eventually fail.
