Question about MagLite Mag-Lite& Flashlight

2 Answers

My maglite 3 d-cell has stopped switching on, therefore I conclude that it's the switch which has broken. How can I get it repaired please? My maglite flickers on and off when I turn the end cap and flicks on when I switch it on or off , but will not stay on, in the on position. Any ideas as I have thoroughly cleaned the contacts except for the switch which I cannot get to. Regards Nigel

    my mag-lite flashlight does not come on

  • syl1207syl Feb 28, 2009

    Light only goes on if I don't screw the top cap all the way. The spring inside the top cap just falls off when I remove the top from the flashlight.

    I think is I can somehow put the spring back in all the way, the light will work again. Anybody know how to do this?

The switch in the mag light is water proof. therefore you can open it to fix it.
the light is cheap enough these days. I suggest just go buy another one.

My 6d maglite keeps blowing the bulb


6D Maglite? As in 6 D cell batteries?

1-1/2 Volts (Each battery), times 6 = 9 Volts.
Using the proper bulb?

The original is a Krypton bulb. (No, I didn't make the name up)

Guess what happens if you put a 3 Volt bulb with 9 Volts?

2 D-cell maglite bulb lights up only when I press it down after removing lense. Everything else appears to work ok


Make sure you have the MagLite bulb with the flange, it is integral to the operation of the light.
