Question about Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

Lightfixture stuck I have an outdoor light that is covered with a glass globe. To get it off the globe is supposed to be turned 1/2 a turn, but I don't know how many times in the 20 years the house is standing that the bulb inside was changed. Right now it is completely stuck. I've tried using a knife to go around the place where the globe meets the metal of the part attached to the wall. I've tried wd-40 and I've tried gentle force (repeatedly) Now I don't know what to try next as these things are still not working for me. Thanks

Try applying a little heat. That may help free it up. If there is a rubber seal in there it will soften it up and maybe fix your problem. There's maybe a 15% chance it will work but it's worth a try.

How do i get light bulb cover off k9375 ceiling fan


The entire glass globe twists off (counterclockwise looking at the globe from below). It is kind of tricky, but if you apply constant pressure eventually it will begin to turn slowly, and then (1/4-1/2 turn) it will pop right off.

WARNING: I strongly suggest you have another pair of hands to help ensure the globe doesn't come crashing down to the ground, as it's VERY easy to do!

Is a globe outlet timer supposed to turn when plugged in? it is a "pin" type


Yes it turns when time passes.

If timer is not turning, it is broken and needs to be replaced, or the electricity is off.

I have lost my instructions and cannot figure out how to replace the burned out light bulb in my Minka Aire F603 ceiling fan unit; I can't figure out how to get to the bulb - can't figure out how to get...


Hi Bill. So far I have not been able to find a manual, but I will keep looking. In the mean time, if you want to give it a try, it appears to me that the circular piece that has the fingers that hold the light globe is probably put in place to hold the globe by a "turning" motion. If you were to reach up and grab this ring and gently turn it counter clock wise I bet it would turn perhaps 1-3 inches and disengage the fan body. Makes sense that the manufacturer would make it easy to change light bulbs and viewing the fan, this would be about the easiest way to do it. I would assume the glass globe is NOT fastened to this ring in any manner, so if you do decide to try this, be ready to have the glass globe release from the holding ring.
I will let you know when/if I find a manual. If you decide to try my solution and are satisfied with it, I would appreciate a Thumbs Up rating from you. BTW, nice fan. Paul

How do i remove the light to change a light bulb?


i looked it up online and they called it a:
Single Bowl Twist and Lock Light Kit.
Some things i would suggest:
  1. push it up and turn (like when you open a medicine bottle.
  2. try to look for a spring action peg that clicks in automatically around the glass dome that might be locking it...

please comment my solution :) thanks

There are two ways to remove the globe. one is there are screws on top of the glass. two is you grab the glass and turn it counter clockwise. and some tomes there 3 metal clips that hold it in place you just need to pull the glass globe straight down.

Good Luck

How to Change light bulb (yes, really...)


If yours is the same as the model 04890 that I looked up on the net, you will unscrew the center nut of the light fixture being carefull to not let the fixture drop to the floor. Once you have the center piece off you will be able to unscrew the bulbs and install new ones. Be carefull and be sure power is off before you do this.
