I believe it is cheaper just to replace it then try to get the parts!

You may be able to take it apart and salvage it by using what is leftr of the old pull chain but I am not sure.

The gold terminal is usually the "hot" terminal (black wire), the silver terminal is "neutral" (white wire). Remember to turn off the power before you work on it.

SOURCE: In replacing a broken pull chain (no 3-way power

I assume the switch operates the lights only. Besides the ground (green or bare) and the neutrals (4 white wires all connected together), the only wires of interest should be 4 wires (black) from the fixture and the 2 wires on your switch. Of the 4 black wires, one of them is the hot wire and the other 3 connect to the three bulbs. Connect the hot wire to either one of your switch leads and connect the other 3 wires to the other switch lead.
If you don't know which of the 4 black wires is hot you can find it by the process of elimination as follows---- connect any three of the black wires together (then supply power), if nothing lights, then the 4th wire is hot. Otherwise 2 bulbs should light. Remove one wire from this trio. If nothing lights, the wire you just removed is the hot wire. Otherwise, one bulb should light and one of these two remaining wires is the hot wire. Take one of those last two wires and connect it to one of the other bulbs. If it lights, then the wire you just moved is hot. Otherwise the one you left behind is hot. I hope this is helpful. Good luck. Be safe! Al K

How do I replace the Leviton Bi-Pin on a Linear Fluoresent Lampholder?

Take the end cap off the fixture case - unwire the old socket and reverse the process for installing a new socket.
The little slots on either side of the socket slide onto the fixture case.

1 Answer


I need to ask you for a bit more information. Ordinarily a socket for a 3-way lamp has two external connections, one of which goes to power (black is the standard color) and one which connects to the neutral wire (white is the standard color). The other wire commonly encountered in house wiring is green, which is a ground connection. Lamps normally do not use a ground. The Levitron web page does not flag this socket to be anything out of the ordinary, but neither do they show the connections.

So please provide any additional information that you can on this socket. Is it meant to hold a single, 3-way incandescent bulb, or is it for a florescent bulb? Is it meant for a special purpose?

Do i need to add ground wires for a Lampholder kit?

The ground should be a green insulated wire from one of the screws on the fixture then attached to the bare ground wire with a wire nut.

Problem with CHK60SS kitchen hood

This question is unlikely to get answered here as it is posted in the flat panel tv section--repost it in the appliance section.

I would GOOGLE THE MODEL NUMBER FOR information on this by model number and even look on You Tube to see if any video there.

My right turn signal bulb has burned out. I

You should not need to remove the assembly, just unscrew or remove the lampholder from the back of the fixture and replace the lamp. It will be the part with the wires going into it.

i hope this helps,

I need to replace the led light for the interior light

If you are refering to the bulb on the door panel, all you've got to do is pry out the lampholder with a small flat screwdriver and install the replacement bulb. If it has a screw or 2 then remove them first.

Have a 2007 dodge nitro. how do you get to the rear tail lights to replace the the plastic plugs out and now wontseat back in

when the plugs are out, grip the lamp (I try to get my finger in as far as I can at the top corner) then pull it out straight back,I have seen the lamp and the quater damaged when someone uses a screwdriver to pry it out.there are 2 small balls that clip into plastic sockets in the rear quater, you need a T20 torx bit to remove the retaining screws from the lamp holder, the holder needs prying to free it from the housing. Test the lights before re-fitting, when the lampholder is re fitted slide the light unit in squarely and "pat" it with the palm of your hand to engage the balls, the holes should be in line to re-fit the plugs.

Light doesn't work on Kenmore Model 55022 Range hood...

If you're getting 120V at the lampholders, yet it's not lighting lamps that still work perfectly well in other fittings, two possibilitiesspring to mind.

One is that the cap on the bulbs isn't quite compatible with the fitting. Assuming they're some variant of Edison Screw, make sure that the centre terminal in the lampholder is sticking out far enough to touch the terminal on the bulb. Also check whether the lampholder achieves it's outer connection just with a small tab, rather than with the whole of the threaded ring. If so, make sure that this is going to touch the appropriate part of the bulb.

The other possibility is that you've got a high resistance connection somewhere - not enough of an open circuit to drop the 120 V when feeding the Megohm load presented by a meter, but more than enough to kill the supply when you have a lamp load. Only way to chase this is to use the meter on ohms range to bell out all the wiring between the lampholders and bits of the system which do work properly.
