I need help finding a light socket
My son pulled the chain out of my ceiling fan, so I went to replace the pull chain switch, but ran into a problem. The pull chain switch is in the light socket itself, and I cannot fit a wire nut in there in order to reconnect the lower wire. My experience with wiring goes about that far, using wire nuts to connect them. I attached a picture of the socket below. It takes two 13W CFL bulbs and has the lock in base. I am either looking for where I can buy this type of socket or how to safely reconnect the lower wire. I do not know the brand/model of the fan otherwise I would have just bought a new lighting kit for it. Unfortunately none of the fans in my house have a plate with a name or any indication of the brand. Any help is appreciated.
