Davey, a certain amount of heating is normal, but
it shouldn't be uncomfortable to put your hand on. The
circuit that does the dimming is not 100% efficient;
the energy is lost as heat. As Tim said, be sure that
the dimmer is rated for the load you're controlling
(which should be only incandescent lamps BTW).
