Can someone tell me how to replace the bulb in this fixture? I'm not sure how to dismantle it.


I didn't install the fixture so I don't know how many pieces there are to it, therefore I don't know what to take off in order to replace the bulb.

    Thanks, Becky. We do have a ladder. I told my son it needs to be a two person job because I have no idea where my ex-husband got that fixture. I don't want to risk breaking the globe.

    That's what I was thinking, Aime. Thank you. I'll enlist my son's help.

    This fixture was installed in 2008 and the bulb has just now died. I'm thinking we put a curly-cue bulb inside and I have another. Hopefully, it'll last another 8 years before it needs to be replaced!

    This fixture seems to be tighter than most. I only had to clean mine occasionally, usually dust. Now I live in AZ and have to dust the inside of all my fixtures monthly. During the summer, I have to clean them more because of the moths.

    I always get good quality CFL's and rarely need to change them. Phillips is not good quality, I found out. GE seems to last quite a while. I use them exclusively and only need to change one every 3-4 years now.
