I have recessed lighting in my living room. One of the bulbs went out. I tried replacing it with a fresh one, but no luck. There is electricity flowing to the socket, but the socket appears to have gone bad.
I bought a replacement socket at Home Depot, but upon disassembling the light, I realized that I might not be able to replace the socket alone.
I have a Lightolier Lytecaster 1102 Frame-In-Kit. Details here:
It doesn't look like the socket can be removed from the porcelain socket housing. Does this mean I have to replace the entire framing kit? I tried calling Lightolier support, but so far I've only gotten an answering machine.
Here are photos of the enclosure:
And how the socket is fastened:
SOLVED: See Dan's answer below. I don't know how I missed it, but inside the socket there are screws. The socket is not riveted to the enclosure. Alas, I did have to buy the whole Frame-in-Kit to get the correct socket, but at least I didn't have to remove the entire frame from the ceiling. I just unscrewed the socket and screwed in the new one.
