Question about MagLite Mag-Lite& Flashlight
I have put 3 new bulbs in mt maglite 6d cell but it keep 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?

Sounds like a bad switch, but if you live in the US, you have a limited lifetime warranty on your light.

You should also consider installing a LED bulb in your light. If you use it much at all, it will quickly pay for itself in battery life and the light is a lot whiter.

Not sounding good. I have had the problem in the past with Mag lights and though they are good, I always seem to have battery corrosion problems. What I have done is to get a non-metalic rod, wooden doweling has worked for me, carve a bit of a blade at the end, sort of like a long screw driver and work it into and between the batter and flashlight case. Not so hard as to deform the flashlight, but to try and break the seal between the corroded (I assume) battery and the case. Spray in some WD40 and work the dowel in and around the battery. Stop on occasion and tap the open end of the flashlight on a heavy rag laid atop a piece of wood to try and jar the battery loose. By repeating this process I have been able to remove corroded batteries, but not necessarily save the flashlight, as some times the on/off switch is corroded as well. Once you get the batteries out you may be able to clean the inside with some abrasive (steel wool?) to clean out the corrosion, but as I said, you may not be able to save the light. Best of luck!

You probably have a defective switch, which happens. Maglights are lifetime warranty, so if you go to
