You don’t want to end up with a dead lamp that needs to be replaced by a lamp that isn’t.
Here’s how to fix a dead light that’s starting to fall out of the wall.1.
Fix the problem1.
Start with the sourceThe source of the problem may not be the floor lamp itself.
Check the ceiling for a possible source of dead light.
You might also look in your garage or office.2.
Remove the source2.
Get rid of the sourceYou’ll want to remove the source of light from the wall to avoid any potential sparks from the lamp.
You can also remove the lamp to prevent it from being damaged in the first place.
If you have a power outlet nearby, you may want to use the outlet to turn the lamp off.3.
Reattach the source3.
Put it back togetherYou might have found a dead bulb or lamp that you don’t need to replace.
You should be able to use that lamp to illuminate the floor of your home, but there’s no need to remove it from the ceiling to prevent a fire hazard.
To do that, first get rid of any residual light from any source of lighting.
Next, put the lamp back together, then put the source back in place.
Make sure the lamp is firmly attached to the wall with a clamp.
You may need to adjust the clamp if the source is moving or is causing sparks to come out of your lamp.
If the source isn’t sticking firmly, you can try another source of illumination.
You’ll also want to check the ceiling.
If there are any sparks coming out of ceiling lights, you’ll want the lamp attached to a light fixture and possibly a lamp with an off switch.
