Why does my bulb keep blowing?
Lifespan for a typical incandescent home use bulb is around 1,000 hours. If you leave your lamp on 24/7, that is about 700 hours in a typical month.
The bulbs used in Himalayan salt lamps are sensitive. If lamps are moved suddenly or are exposed to vibration, they can blow or have a diminished life.
High humidity can also cause bulbs to blow. This happens by creating corrosion on the contacts, which then creates higher resistance in the circuit, causing them to blow or wear out prematurely.
Power spikes or surges through your circuits in your home or office occur constantly. But spikes mean problems for any electric item, and the cords & bulbs used in Himalayan salt lamps are sensitive to this as well.
If you have bulbs popping or blowing regularly, here are some things to take into consideration:
1. The bulb is not screwed in firmly enough. This causes more resistance which can wear the bulb & cord prematurely.
2. There is condensation on the bulb or electrics of the dimmer causing them to corrode and create higher resistance.
3. The bulb is touching the inside surface of the lamp, or after a bulb has been changed, the cord and bulb has been pushed too far to the top of lamp and is touching the salt. This creates hot spots that concentrate too much heat on the bulb.
4.The lamp is moved during or after the lamp has been switched on for quite a long time.
5. There is a large current drawing appliance on the same circuit that is turned on/off and there is a momentary power spike or fluctuation that reaches the bulb and dimmer cord electric components.
6. There is excessive ‘micro vibration’ nearby too close to a TV, refrigerators, etc.
If the lamp has been turned off and sweated, salt may have leaked onto the bulb which will cause it to blow.
