Simply Build It

Assuming two wires in both units and straight swap may be it does not match the type of lights. But without a lot more info couldn't help and so many different dimming switches even with information not sure if I could help. But at least give us the number of lights and type of lights i.e. standard bulbs or extra low voltage with transformers etc. And at least the size of dimmer unit 200w or 1000w etc. Wattage of bulbs also maybe we will see some error?
