The lamp has on-off pull-chain switch.
You can buy replacement pull-chain switch at hardware store.
Buy the pull-chain switch that has two wires.
Buy two yellow or orange wire nuts.

Take apart light.
Remove old pull-chain. Strip back the wires if needed, twist wires together.
Connect new pull-chain switch using wire nuts.

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...

Can't Find Correct Pull Chain Switch I have a new bathroom wall sconce that has a two lights - a regular bulb and an LED night light. The pull chain switch for it broke and no one at Lowes or Home Depot...


It's called a "momentary switch, normally closed". This is sometimes abbreviated Mom Switch, NC. But I have never seen one with a pull chain before. Maybe you can find one with a toggle that you can attach a chain to.
Good luck.

We purchased an Everstar pre-lit Christmas Tree and we can not locate the manual or instructions that came with the tree any help since half the tree doesn't light up and all the plugs are plugged in....


I have a 3 piece Everstar 7/12 slim pine and here are the plug portion of the assemblly instructions . "1) connect the plug(A1) of string with the end cord (B1) of string. 2) Insert the plug (B2 & C1) of string into the wall outlet. 3) After the plugs are plugged into the wall outlet your entire tree should be lit. If some bulbs do not light, search for any loose plugs, broken, loose or missing bulbs that may have caused the problem."
My illustration shows the A1 in the top section of the tree while B1 is in the middle section. Both the middle section and bottom section get plugged into the wall or extension cord. Hope this helps

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.

Pull cord switch


If it is a 1 way switch circuit (2core +earth cable) it should be LIVE/HOT in COM and Aux live (to the light) in L1 . I

f you have a 2 way circuit (3 core + earth cable) the aux strappers go in L1 & L2. and LIVE/HOT to COM

Remember to disconnect the power before working on electric wiring.


Please remember to rate this solution.
