Therefore, the light bulb sockets may not be the same.

How to change a light bulb of an Authentic Turkish Lamp

1-) Turn off the power
First, make sure the power is turned off. The safest way to do this is to unplug the lamp from the wall socket.
2-) Remove the bulb and the lid
Hold the glass shade steady and pull the lid down or up (do not twist the metal part ) ( see diagrams for your type of lamp base ) and hold the metal springs to remove it. To take the bulb out of the socket, keep gently twisting anticlockwise until the bulb comes loose from the socket.

Insert a replacement bulb in the socket ( Use E-14 type of light bulb ) and keep gently twisting clockwise until it won’t go any further. Make sure that the light bulb is working if you are using an existing one.

4-) Place the lid back
Once the bulb is in, place the lid back into the glass shade by pressing the metal springs.
 5-) Restore power
Make sure that everything is done safely. Plug the cord back into the wall socket again and switch on the light.
As always, safety is crucial when working with electrical or wiring faults.
  • Check the wattage on the used bulb and replace it with a bulb of the same wattage
  • Dispose of the bulb well out of the reach of children
  • Don’t put your fingers in the exposed light socket

      Unfortunately, my lamp does not match with this description as I purchased mine in one of the overseas online websites. Different components used in the overseas versions and I had a converter plug on my one which is sucks. I will buy locally next time.
