Light bulb blowing frequently

There one socket that a lightbulb keeps bowing. Is that a sign of an electrical problem? If this is not the correct sight, can somebody direct me?

Thanks in advance.

    You wrote, There is one sockec that lightbulbs keep blowing in.... Correct?

    What type of light are we talking about? If it is a regular run of the mill porcelain lampholder there is not much to go wrong with the light itself. If on the other hand it is a Compact Flourenscent (CFL) there are a few components to it that can go wrong.

    CAREFULLY visually inspect the inside of the socket if it is not a CFL and make sure there is no foreign material in it. Please write back with the type of light it is.

How does a Sperry HST401 ensure power is off to a ceiling fan?

if the light bulb is off, you don't have power at the lightsocket, sometimes those testers are too sensible, speceally cheap ones.
I have a Fluke and also get false hots but never a false dead.

I have a bad circuit (S type 15 amps fuse) that blows every fuse I put in it. My four way voltage tester says that it runs at 110 volts. Does this mean that I have a ground or short circuit problem? If so,...

please describe what type of device or circuitry you are having the fuse repeatedly blow so that I have a better idea of understanding your specific circumstance. A constant blown fuse normally indicates a short somewhere or an overloaded circuit somewhere. The type of tester you need is a ground fault receptacle tester you can purchase them at any hardware/electrical supply store for between $10-15 that tester when plugged in will show whether you wiring is correctly installed or not. please respond with further info and I can be of more assistance
