Question

One of my (dial)dimmer switches suddendly quit dimming, and now only works in the brightest mode, or off. Do I need to replace the whole dimmer unit or is there a different, easier, less expensive fix?

What's cheapar than replacing it? they only
cost a couple of bucks, and unless you know
what you are doing, you are better of replacing.
