If one of your lamp experiences frequent short circuits, the problem may be a faulty socket of your lamp socket adapter. In this case, it is better to change the socket of the bulb using a wire stripper and a screwdriver rather than trying to repair it. Here are the steps to follow.
How to remove the defective socket of your lamp socket adapter? Start by unplugging the lamp from its socket adapter or turning off the power to the fixture circuit from the main circuit breaker, to avoid the risk of electric shock. To remove the socket, simply unscrew the rings and the sleeve that holds it with a screwdriver, and loosen the screws for fixing the electrical wires. Regarding the purchase of the new socket, you must choose a model with the same shape and dimensions. As such, there are two main types of sockets: the socket with screw base and the socket with bayonet base.
Fit the new socket on your lamp socket adapter after removing the old socket, strip the wires 5 to 10 millimeters maximum, and twist them by hand. Then insert the wires into the connection terminals of the new socket, which will be fixed by tightening the fixing screws. Position the base of the socket on the lamp, and then fix it by replacing the rings and the shirt. Then replace the lamp bulb, and turn on the power to check that the device is working properly.
