The KILA simply uses a 12v halogen bulb and so and 12v supply, AC or CD is fine - use just a 12v transformer!

Hey D Mac, almost 2 years has passed since your reply so I don't know if you found a solution yet or just forgot the post like me...
What I did was to find in my apartment another power supply with the same specs and cut/connect the cables from the lamp.
This worked until today when the power supply decided to die, that's the reason why I remembered about this post.

I hope you found a solution, now I have to buy a new one

My daughter inherited an IKEA desk lamp from a college roommate - unfortunately it didn’t come with the power supply.
Have either of you been able to track one down or find a suitable substitute?
Thanks for your advisement.

Dimmer switch (kaoyi KFD-527G3) stopped working on my Ikea floor lamp?

The dimmer switch on our Ikea floor lamp has stopped working for some reason. Don't think it's the fuse as the lamp lights up normally from the mains. It doesn't dim that's all. Tested the fuse as well and it looks fine. It's a Kaoyi KFD-527G3. Anyone got any ideas on this please? Not sure of the na...
