Kung Fu Maintenance demonstrates how you can remove a broken off light bulb base stuck in the socket with or without potatoes.
Electricity can and does kill. Don’t touch anything unless you know exactly what you are doing.
OK. If you have got a broken off light bulb base socket. Make sure your power is off of course. This one I might be lucky enough to twist it out. No. What you can do is use a raw piece of potatoe and stick that on the socket base and turn it out. Or sometimes what I do is use my leathermen like so. Again making sure the power is out. You can use a pair of pliers or a leatherman but extend it out as far as you can and try to see if you can rotate it to be able to turn it. Try to get it to catch and be able to turn it out. This one is being quite stubborn. Also sometimes you can use your fingers like so. It’s just a matter of giving it the right amount of pressure. If I push in too much that might press in on the threads. Anyway able to turn it out there. Replace it with a new bulb and we’re back to normal. All set there.
