I have a dimmer switch that goes to the wall outlet. The problem is that the switch also works the outlet across the room. I am able to switch the white and black wires, but I can't get the red one out of the back (when I switch the wires, but not the red one, i have no power at all).
Help please with 'blond proof' instructions. I've already been to Home Depot three times this morning alone.
Thanks Andrea

Andrea, if you can't remove the red wire from the old switch, then simply cut it off flush with the switch and restrip it so you can install it in the new switch.
