bathroom barlight


I am having troubles reconnecting my barlight. I had a lightbulb burnout, I thought. Switching bulbs around etc..., the contact needed cleaned. I unscrewed the socket and removed it to get at the contact better. After cleaning it, I put the socket and bulb back in and the bulb lit up. Alas, I forgot the locking nut and had to disconnect the pigtailed wires to get the nut on. After reconnecting everything and turning the electricity back on, only one of the four bulbs lit up. I disconnected all the wiring and repigtailed(?) everything. Now a different bulb lights up and three are still unlit. HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

I would advise you to make sure all the wires are securely connected in your wirenuts.

Thank you. They are now all securely connected. The original socket still isn't working. I have tried working bulbs and they don't light. The socket is hardwired. Are those types of sockets available to purchase at a hardware store?
