        Flylo, your observation is right on the money. The most straightforward posts here often turn into 12 pages of drivel with some excellent answers mixed in.

            Oh,yeah, and then 4 people ( I can name them, but won't) will note that the Edison Socket (or whatever ES stands for), like everything that originated in North America or is used there is no good, and Metric is better, and you know where that goes.

              1 (me) to post on this occasion that we are limited as to how much input we can provide on the topic as there is not enough information. I mean is it a screw or a bayonet type etc etc. How far is the fitting from the floor. Is it even on the ceiling. Does the OP have a scissor lift. Can the OP readily get the lens off the torch etc. Just not enough info.

                    No body is looking at the problem from the light bulbs point of view.
                    The bulb has to want to change for anything to happen at all.

                      At least a handful of members to suggest testing the circuit first to be sure that the problem is really the lamp and not something else.

                      Oh and one or two to remind you to lock out tag out the circuit before fooling around with the lamp.

                              This is such a tangent for a man of your caliber, Forrest! Quite often you have the best answers to the various questions here.
