Touch lamp repair

I have a touch lamp that had a blown bulb, replaced the bulb and the lamp will still not light either by switch or touch. There is no identifying information on the lamp other than "portable lamp" and "Made in China", there is a few numbers but no brand name.

    I have two touch lamps that won't turn on. After talking with the electronics guy he said that the triac (bt137) is usually the problem. If you take off the bottom plastic plate of the lamp you will find a small black plastic box. Inside this box you will find a small circuit board. On the circuit board look for a black three pronged triac. On the board itself it may be labellled tr-1. Now that you have located it unsolder it from the board and replace it with a new triac from your local electronics supplier (cost about $3.75 each). I hope this will be helpful.

Double check that the replacement bulb is good. If it is, then when the old bulb blew, it probably shorted and destroyed the touch sensor. The touch sensor is replaceable and is usually located in the base of the lamp. You may have to peel off some felt on the base to expose the screws that hold the base on. Touch sensors are generally available at hardware stores, electrical supply stores, or lighting stores and are around $10-15. They are easy to wire. Just follow the instructions and observe the way the old one was wired. You may need some small wire nuts if they don't come with the new sensor.

Leviton 6793 does not work on LED lamps?


Look at product number again to see if numbers posted are correct.
Also include what type of device this is: rotary dimmer? slide dimmer? touch dimmer? Switch? single-pole application or 3-way? And include what you are replacing.

Mag-lite does not work i have tried new batteries and new bulb and cleaning the spring in the rear.The switch appears to be operating correctly,but has not been checked


If your flashlight is like mine...

The switch closes the circuit to the bulb, so there is a wire, or metal conductor running from the switch to the bulb holder. If your switch is mechanical, it will push a metal lever forward ... bend lever this so it contacts the bulb holder better. If your switch has a wire, the wire is soldered to the bulb holder, but the switch may be bad

There is a second wire or metal conductor running to the back of the flashlight. This conductor has to make good connection to the metal spring. Stretch out the metal spring, and see if it rotates a bit so it makes better contact with the conductor coming from bulb.

There is a third point. This is where the front of the battery touches. If batteries touch the bulb, then the problem is the metal spring in the back or the mechanical switch lever. If your batteries touch a copper spring, see if you can clean this spring and pull it out a bit.

My Maglite torch that takes two AA batteries will not switch on. I think I require a replacement were the bulb fits into its connection.


Hi,
The top just screws off and the bulb just pulls out....there should be a replacement bulb in the bottom cap under the spring inside that little plastic holder...just do not touch the bulb with you fingers when installing it. use a tissue paper to hold the bulb...
Line up the two little wires with the holes and gently press the new bulb in...

Touch dimmer malfunction


sounds like a loose connection to me, check to make sure all connections are tight. sometimes the bulbs themselves don't make a good connection in there socket.

u will have to take the switches out of the wall box and make sure the wires are tight, whether they are on screws or wires connected to wires. if it is wires to wires u may have to take that apart to make sure u don't have a bad connection there.

if it is none of that, then it is time to replace the switches

Replacing cord on table lamp


From one side of the lamp cord, to one side of the switch.

From other side of switch to both blacks from the upper and lower bulbs.

From other side of lamp cord, to the white coming from both bulbs.

This assumes there is a black and white wire coming from both bulbs.

Please note, look at the lamp cord closely, particularly the plug. If one prong is wider than the other, then the plug is polarized, and you need to pay special attention to the wires leading out of the plug. One of the two will be ribbed, the other smooth. Note which is on the same side of the plug as the wide prong. Whichever is with the wide prong, should NOT connect to the switch, but to the whites coming from the bulbs.
