Based on my experience, here are 8 tips for fluorescent tube socket replacement:
- Turn off the power: Before replacing the socket, turn off the power supply to the fixture at the circuit breaker or fuse box.
- Remove the tube: Carefully remove the fluorescent tube from the fixture and set it aside.
- Remove the old socket: Locate the old socket and remove it by unscrewing it or pulling it out, depending on the type of socket.
- Disconnect wires: Once you have removed the socket, disconnect any wires attached to it. You may need to use wire cutters or strippers to remove any old or damaged wires.
- Connect the new socket: Connect the wires from the new socket to the wires in the fixture, using wire connectors to secure them in place.
- Install the new socket: Carefully install the new socket, either by screwing it in or pushing it into place, depending on the type of socket.
- Replace the tube: Once the new socket is securely in place, carefully replace the fluorescent tube, making sure it is properly seated in the new socket.
- Turn on the power: Turn the power supply back on at the circuit breaker or fuse box and test the fixture to make sure it is working properly.
The tips for fluorescent tube socket replacement, LED tube is also commonly known as LED light tube, LED fluorescent lamp, LED fluorescent lamp, and its light source adopts LED as the light emitting body.
The traditional fluorescent tubes also known as fluorescent lamp, lamp at both ends of each of a filament, trace argon and rare mercury vapor lamp is filled, on the inner wall of the lamp tube is coated with fluorescent powder, between two filaments of gas conductive emit ultraviolet light, the fluorescent powder to emit visible light.
Due to the presence of heavy metals and their compounds 0.9m, 1.2m, 1.5m, 1.8m, the tube is 2.4mLED installation is simple, the installation will take out the original fluorescent lamp for LED lamp.
Fluorescent light ballast and fluorescent starter removing and let the 220V AC commercial power is applied directly to the LED at both ends of the lamp tube can be led lamp energy saving up to more than 70%, life is ordinary lamp is more than 10 times (theory is can reach more than 50000 hours).
Almost maintenance free, there is no need to frequently replace the lamp, ballast, starter, about half a year down the cost savings can be in exchange for the cost.
Green environmental protection type of semiconductor light source, the light is soft, color is pure, it is beneficial to people’s eyesight protection and health.
