How many people does it take to change a lightbulb? Cue the lightbulb jokes…! However, with this quick and easy guide it only takes one adult to change a bulb whenever the need arises.
- Turn off the power
- Don’t change your lightbulb whilst it’s still hot
- Remove the bulb. A bayonet mount with two prongs needs to be grasped, pushed upwards and turned anticlockwise until it is released from the socket. A screw fitting bulb merely needs turning anticlockwise until it comes loose
- Insert a replacement bulb. Turn the bulb clockwise until it locks in place or twist it gently until it won’t go any further
- Turn the power back on
- Put the old bulb in the new packaging and dispose of carefully
