I have an idea. Try posting it in the Electrical Forum where it belongs, and you might get more responses.

Jackin. lol
Does the twighlight ring turn freely and seem like it'* not connected. This is the part I call the snout and it breaks off very easily. The switch pull rod will hold it in and make it seem lile it'* one piece.

Afterthought. if you pull the switch and are messing with it. Be careful the metal plate sticking out of it is part of the dimming resistance circuit and is hot normally. I nearly burned a finger on that baby.
