White Floor Lamp – High school students take their own lamps in shop class. Repairing a lamp is only slightly more difficult. Instead of throwing out the floor lamp that has so diligently lit your life over the years, fix it. A few parts, a new set of wire and about the positive assessment of the effort of an hour is all that is needed to save your floor lamp from the dumpster.
Unplug the lamp from your white floor lamp. Remove the lampshade and loosen the cap screw where it attaches to the lamp tube. Once the cable is exposed, cut with wire dams. Pull the rest of the lamp cable through the bottom. Replace to replace the cover of the new take on his new wire. Screw the cap into the lamp tube with the screw defined in the cap. Separate the cable by pulling the two strands apart by approximately 6 inches. Remove the insulation approximately 1/2 inch from the end of each cable.
Identify the lead wire (usually indicated by a white strip on its insulating rubber) and the exposed copper loop around the silver screw. Tighten the screw with a flathead screwdriver to secure the cable completely to the inlet. Repeat the process for the remaining wire from its attachment to the gold screw. Slide the shell of the socket over your switch and seat it inside the cover of the outlet. The peel will lock on the lid if pressed firmly and evenly. Screw in a light bulb. Replace the shadow. Plug in the lamp again to the white floor lamp.
