1076 Bulbs

I had an interior light bulb burn. It says itís a 1076. So I got a 1076 replacement bulb and it will not twist to lock in. Upon closer inspection the stamp on the base says T1076. Is there a difference? Anyone else have issues with 1076 bulbs not fitting in the lights?

I've got them on the pendulum lights over the kitchen island and they are a pain to get in. Very tight fit.Try using a little more upward pressure before twisting

T usually stands for Tube or Tubular.. I see no reason why it won't twist in and lock. Is the base the same and the two contact points?? Hope it works out for you. You might want to take the buld to the Auto parts store if still in question. Good luck..

The originals slide right in and lock easily with twist. The replacement will not twist to lock in. Iíve pushed up to the point that Iím worried I will break the bulb or damage the light. It is the pendulum lights over the sink.

A 1076 should be a 1076....or they always have been when I put them in. Some are much harder to push in and twist than others. You might just look at the little nubs and make sure they are placed exactly like the OEM. Also, you might think about getting some LED 1076 replacements for them.

Like sourdough mentioned, you might want to consider getting some LED 1076 replacements. Amazon.com sells a ton of different varietys, and I'm sure you can find some at your local RV store as well. Once replaced, will probably last several years.

Twist lock light bulbs can sometimes be difficult to insert into the base. This can happen for a couple of reasons that aren't related to "bulb must be built wrong".... First, the two contacts in the base are spring loaded. Sometimes the springs are a bit too strong and won't compress easily. We perceive that as "the bulb is too tight". Second, sometimes the light bulb base is built with lead (or solder) contacts that are a "touch too tall" and the bulb just won't push into the base enough to engage the two tabs. In either situation, sometimes just filing off a part of the lead/solder to "shorten the contact" is all that's needed. When I have a bulb that has a base that's "too long to push into the base" I find a concrete block, rub the two contacts along the concrete for a couple of "swipes", wipe the dust off the base and try again.

Usually, after a couple of "adjustments" the bulb will fit and work properly.

Then again, with the "Made in china" label, most anything is possible, so if this won't work, try another brand of bulb. There may be a "manufacturer's defect", but I'd grind down the contacts a tad before I gave up completely.

JRTJH,
Thank you, sir. That did it. A couple of swipes on the patio concrete and it slipped right it. Works perfect!

I'm glad it worked for you. Between a roll of duct tape, a hank of rope and a spool of bailing wire, now you can add a "chunk of concrete" to your "must have" collection....
