Hello: I have a wall mount light fixture that uses 5 globe type bulbs. I have had the fixture for about 10 years, recently each time I replace a bulb - the new bulb burns out within a few hours. Only the two end bulbs remain lighted.

Can someone let me know what might be causing the 3 bulbs to keep burning out so quickly? I've been using both GE & Sylvania 40 watt incandescent bulbs.

  • Are any other appliances in your house acting odd? Is the toaster cooking slower than it used to? – Harper - Reinstate Monica Jan 5 '19 at 3:17
  • Nope, there are no other electrical issues. – SH Queens Jan 5 '19 at 5:21
