The weak link with all X-10 lamp modules is that the Triac shorts out & the lamp stays on. The Triac is shown in step 2 on the right hand side midway up. (The 3 legged device with the heat sink.) a shorted light bulb or trying to connect an inductive load such as a Fluorescent lamp or motor will blow the Triac. They are available at Radio Shack for about a buck.
