I"ve got a fluorescent irradiate in mine kitchen, and also I need to replace one of the bulbs the blew... Difficulty is, ns can"t get the freakin" cover turn off the light. It"s flush-mounted come the ceiling and also there are no screws or tabs approximately the outside edge. I have the right to slide the cover come the left next a bit, yet that"s it. I"m pretty sure it"s supposed to slide to one end and then autumn down and hang from two wires top top the various other side, yet I can"t gain it come move much more than a fifty percent inch or so. WTF am ns doing wrong?Here"s a pic of claimed light:View image: http://personal.tcu.edu/~djewett/light1.jpg anyone have any kind of ideas?

1) Burn under the house; buy new house v insurance money; pay more attention come existing light fixtures.2) quit plexiglass cover through a hammer when the light fixture is still hanging; this will certainly a) save you two hrs of fucking with it, b) expedite break it in the end, i beg your pardon is the only way you"ll get it out. Sorry for the christmas cheer! -- View picture here: https://cdn.chathamtownfc.net.net/forum/smilies/biggrin_classic.gif --edit: On 2nd look, pull down on the whole white thing... Ns bet the totality thing come off, not simply the plexi.

Does the inside component move in ~ all?Hard come explain, but the 4 sides approximately the exterior are all connected, yet that middle component with the 5 supports, have the right to you press it up turn off of the outer frame?

Photomikey: thanks for the tips, but I"m hoping for a much less drastic solution. -- View picture here: https://cdn.chathamtownfc.net.net/forum/smilies/biggrin_classic.gif --Travathian: The inside component is simply a item of frosted plastic that sits on peak of those lattices, I deserve to push it up yet I don"t see any latches all over on the within of the hardwood frame. The frame and also the lattices room all one piece.

It may have spring tabs about the sides, between the cover and also the interior support. If so, you just need to pull under on the cover through the appropriate amount that force, and it have to pop off. If not... Keep pulling till something gives. -- View picture here: http://episteme.chathamtownfc.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif --

Have funny climbing increase in the attic. Before you do, hit up HD and buy a brand-new fixture that doesn"t suck. Mine mother"s kitchen had actually a comparable fixture for this reason I simply tossed it and also replaced it through a much more user friendly however still pretty looking fixture.
