Bulb Keeps Coming Loose


I have a new light fixture that came with type GU24 CFL bulbs. It's the kind that has two pins and you turn it into a supposedly locked position.

Well, one of them won't lock. It keeps coming loose and turning off and the room gets too dimly lit. I have to get into the fixture and turn the bulb into place every couple weeks.

How do I fix this?

Check the GU24 socket to see if there is any damage there like warped or damaged concants those two most common item I know it will affect it.

Look at your CFL bulb to make sure the base is not damaged as well.

Some case you may try differnt manufacter some case the pin may move a little that useally clear it up.

Merci,
Marc
