I have a floor lamp in which I have installed 2 LIFX Color 1000 A19 Wi-Fi LED Smart Bulbs (http://www.lifx.com/products/color-1000)
The lamp is designed to have 2 bulbs and has a two position dimmer switch for the bulbs wired in parallel so that in position 1, both bulbs light at 50%, and at position 2, both bulbs light at 100%.
The problem is, the smart bulbs do not work with the dimmer switch (they lose the wifi connection intermittently) so I would like to remove the dimmer switch.
The dimmer switch is wired such that it has one wire going into it, and one wire leaving it. The easiest thing I can do is to cut the wires on either side of the dimmer and connect them together, therefore bypassing the switch altogether.
The only thing is that there is a 3A fuse in the switch. Is this needed? Or is my solution ok (bypass the switch and fuse altogether).
I live in the United States.
