headlight switch heating up

by Wally
(Allenstown, NH)

I am replacing the headlight switch and I noticed it was actally burning my hand when I was attempting to position the switch in the dash. Is this normal? I know it is coming from the reostat that dims the dash lights, but shouldn't the white porcelain part insulate the heat from spreading to the metal part. The metal part gets quite hot. Don't need no fires under there!!!
