Can't get new bulb to go into Puck Light

Hi, I am trying to replace the bulb on my under cabinet puck light. I removed the old bulb easily, but the new one will not slide into the holes. I broke one bulb trying to force it in, and just bought another one (and at $6 each, I don't want to break another one!). I don't know why it won't slide in. Any advice?

Check to see if the blades in the socket are jammed together. Sometimes the bulb get inserted on the outside of the blades instead of between.


Answers based on the National Electrical Code. Local amendments may apply. Check with your local building officials.
