Chandelier dimmer not working anymore (pop)

Just replaced a very old chandelier that was on a dimmer switch. Used new LED dimmable bulbs with new fixture. All worked well for a few hours / switches on/ off, then there was a pop and now the dimming feature does not work. Did I accidentally cross some wires or make a bad connection?

Welcome to the forums.

Unfortunately a short on the fixture side of the dimmer will usually burn the dimmer.
You may have a socket problem.

Diagnose the problem using a regular switch before putting in new dimmer.
