How To Change Indoor Flood Light?

Try to use the series LED form as much as possible because the LED floodlight voltage difference is special. The peak current of a common LED is maintained at 80 mA, and the reverse voltage is at or above 6 V. In LED applications, attention should be paid to the peak voltage and current at which the circuit is designed.

Use a voltage of 25 watts or less when soldering. The soldering iron temperature is controlled below 300 degrees Celsius. Exposed SMD LED at high temperature. Do not squeeze the epoxy part of it, or wipe it with a hard object because LED lamps are very fragile. Very easy to damage, welding time is 3 seconds.

Changing a flood light is supposed to be one of the easiest tasks that exist. It’s even the subject of jokes based on how easy it is – “how many plumbers does it take to screw in a light bulb”, etc. However, if you’ve ever tried to change a flood light, you might understand that it isn’t so easy. It’s hard to find directions, and it isn’t as self-explanatory as you might think. Luckily with some guidance, the process is not much more difficult than changing an ordinary bulb.

1..Turn off the power switch. 

You really don’t want to get electrocuted, right? This is the first step and probably the most important in terms of safety. Make sure that you do this before going any further. Wait for the light to cool if it only just burned out. If you don’t feel any heat, it is probably safe to proceed.

2.Set up a ladder or a chair if your light fixture is too high for you to reach

You will want to be able to comfortably move your elbows around too, it’s going to be much harder to change the bulb if you are standing up on your tiptoes trying to change it using only your fingertips. Find something that will put you at a comfortable height and allows you to use both hands easily.

3.Wear gloves.  

If your bulb doesn’t have a protector on it, the oil from your hands can cause some serious damage to the bulb. Try to only grip it from the sides if it doesn’t have a protector. If it turns out the bulb is only loose rather than burned out you don’t want to risk it exploding due to the oil on your hands once you screw it back in.

4.Press inward on the flood light that is already screwed into place in your light fixture using both thumbs. Keep your grip and pressure constant on the bulb with the thumbs as you turn the bulb slowly counter-clockwise. Once it feels like it won’t turn any further, you can stop pushing it inward. You should rotate it about 90 degrees. 

5.Pull the flood light straight out of the socket.

Wiggle it gently as it comes out to make sure it comes out cleanly. Be careful not to drop it, especially if you are on a ladder.

6.Remove the packaging from your new flood light

Remember to keep your gloves on as you do this so as not to get any oil from your hands on the new bulb, which would be even more dangerous and could cause it to explode in the socket if it heats improperly.

7.Press the new flood light inward into the socket.

 Once you’re back up on your ladder, you’ll press the flood light inward into the same position that you took the old bulb out from. Twist it clockwise as far as it will go, and you can turn the lights back on!
