One off color light in new light fixture?


Just installed a new hanging light fixture that has three lights. One produces a yellowish light. Used only new brand name bulbs, even tried new clear bulbs as well and same thing. It's not the glass bells either. Could it be wiring? Any ideas?

the connections are loose, bad fixture, or there is a short somewhere.

rotate the position of the lamps to see if it is the lamp or the fixture.

If it follows the lamp, it's the lamp. Buy another one. If it stays with the particular socket, look for bad connection or if brand new, consider exchanging it for another one.
