Question about Electrical Supplies
In order to replace the socket in one of my hi hat ceiling fixtures, I need to remove the housing from the ceiling. The fixture dates back to 1987 and the flange that sits against the ceiling is an integral part of the fixture itself.
There are no spring clips holding the funnel shaped housing in place. Looking into the housing, you can see three cross shaped punch outs that seem to serve no purpose. The socket itself is attached with 2 bolts to a metal cup, that sits in the narrow back end of the housing. (The bolt heads are not visible since they are on top of the cup.)The metal cup has 2 springs that snap into holes in the housing. The cup can be pushed up a little, but not down.
Pulling down on the flange just seems to bend it and I am reluctant to break open the ceiling.
I'm out of ideas. Am I missing something? Can anybody help? Norm
Do you have a discription? In order to get to the main wires of a flush mount fan turn off power to fan, remove Lt kit if applicable, Take off blades. Does this sound right ?
