Replacing a lamp socket This is my table lamp in my family room. It has been flickering a bit lately. I've mostly tried to to ignore it but at night is hard to do that. So I thought I can fix this or complain about it. It's not like some fairy is going to come in my house and fix everything. Ok here goes. Thank goodness for Google!
First I took the top apart. So far no problem. I'm all about taking things apart. I bought a new socket replacement at Lowe's.
I needed to cut the wires a bit so that they were split into a "Y". This was just enough so that there was enough to twist in place.
Then I re-twisted the wires around to screws for the connection. I know I left out a lot of steps and photos but the point I'm trying to make is that I did it myself!Actually all the information was on the internet. Anyone can do this.
