See number 10 on the link. I went to replace the lamp bulb (and
gasket kit) with new and broke the tube. It inserts from one end
(right side) and then fits into the left side socket. I figured it had
a spring load on the right side end. Place the tube in and got it
bound-up (needs a slight diagonal for install). Trying to maneuver it,
I broke the lamp ($3).
Okay. Bought a new two pack set (another brand). Before I break
another, can the T-3 ceramic socket be damaged? (hard to tell as you
can't really see the socket. When I pulled the pool light housing for
this seemly simple repair, the former lamp bulb was inside the light
can bottom with both ends and broken glass.
Would just the right side be spring loaded?
A halogen lamp with DO NOT TOUCH instructions. Tells me not to touch
it (fingerprints) . In another world it says clean with alcohol..
Experiences with this type, please...?
