Your house will burn to the ground before you get this reply, so there is no point continuing.

Experiment: Swap the "hot" dimmer with one of the other "cold" dimmers. Inspect the wiring while you're at it for obvious loose/bad connection. If the "hot" dimmer's now cold and the "cold" dimmer's now hot, it's possibly the load. If the "hot" dimmer's still hot, it's possibly a bad switch, replace it.
