The lamp socket clips into the the socket plate. The socket plate attaches to the housing with a small bolt and wing-nut, both of which can be easily lost if they have come loose. See nap's link above.

There are some trim that you may have to remove the light socket holder { Item B in Nap's link } and clip right on the trim itself I know few airtight trims will have to do this anyway and of course eyeballs trim the samething as well.
