  1. 1

    Make sure that the lamp is disconnected from the power source prior to installation. This protects you from any risk of electric shock when performing the installation.

  2. 2

    Put the new bulb carefully into place. Do not touch the bulb with your bare hands. Hold the porcelain grip and insert the bulb into the socket. Push the bulb down with minimal pressure and it turn clockwise.

  3. 3

    Set up the torchiere by removing the screws, silicone rings, knurled nuts and washers from the fixture.

  4. 4

    Connect the glass shade to the lamp. Place a washer over each stem of the lamp and secure them using knurled nuts.

  5. 5

    Insert two screws into the holes provided for the glass shield. Place a small silicone ring over each screw to hold it in place. Put the glass shield over the fixture, keeping the shiny side up.

  6. 6

    Screw the glass shield into place, taking special care not to overtighten the screws.

  7. 7

    Turn on the lamp to test the functionality of the bulb. If the lamp does not power on, replace the bulb.

Tips and warnings

  • Do not touch the hot lens, the guard or the enclosure.
  • Move away from the light if your skin feels warm.
  • Keep the lamp away from flammable materials and never look directly at the bulb.
