How to Replace a Two Pin Halogen Light Bulb

Monika / 2013-03-11


  1. Make sure the power is off before you open the fixture.
  2. You may have an obstacle or two to remove before getting to the bulb; such as an interior housing plate or reflective lens cover.
  3. Now these types of bulbs can get extremely hot so make sure that you don’t go and grab right on to it, even if its blow then can still have some heat to them. It's a good idea to wear some good protective gloves in this situation.
  4. Most of the time the plug has clips on either side to hold the bulbs base into place. If you are working with a bulb that simply has pins right off the bulb just pull the old bulb right out. If your bulb has a ceramic like base grab a hold of the base and wiggle out of place, never grab by the bulb.
  5. Oils from your hands can be bad for these types of bulbs so if you’re not already wearing gloves do so before installing the new bulb.
  6. Once you've replaced the bulb, put your housing back together and close up the fixture.
  7. Now it's time to turn the power back on. One thing to note is that it may take a minute for the bulb to kick and warm up so if it’s not instantaneous don’t worry.


  • Some of these types of bulbs have ballast that power them so if your light does not come on after replacing it your ballast or component of your ballast may be the problem. Ballast can either be electronic or Magnetic, each application varies.


  • Turn the breaker off to anything you are working on before you start working, safety is very important.
