Changing a light bulb (Conclusion)
5.Replace the bulb
Insert a replacement bulb lightly but firmly into the socket. Depending on the type, turn it clockwise until it locks into place or keep gently twisting clockwise until it won’t go any further.
Once the bulb is in, turn the power back on again and switch on the light.
7.Dispose of the old bulb
The old bulb needs to be disposed of safely as the glass is fragile and very sharp. Use the packaging from the new bulb to wrap the old one for safe disposal.
*Don’t put your fingers in the exposed light socket*

Changing a light bulb (Part1) is one of the easiest things you can do.
Let us show you how.
1. Turn off the power
First make sure the power is turned off. The safest way to do this is to switch the large red power button to ‘off’ on the fuse box.
2.Let it cool
Allow the bulb to cool before touching it.
3. Use a ladder
Ensure you can safely reach the bulb by using a stepladder.
Take the bulb out of the socket. The way you do this will depend on whether your bulb has a bayonet mount or a screw fitting:
