Vanity Mirror Dimmer switch

I have a Hollywood style vanity mirror that the dimmer is not working properly on. It will turn on and off, but the knob is definitely harder to turn and the dimmer does not work at all. How would I fix or replace this? TIA!

Most likely it's worn out. However I would try using an electrical contact cleaner. It comes in a spray can. Unplug the unit, remove knob and spray the knob while turning. Wait a few minutes for the spray to dry and dissipate. Then try it out. This condition is very common on volume dials on radios and similar devices. Beyond this not much you can do.
