How to change a shower canister light bulb

Canister light bulbs are those bulbs that are inlayed in the ceiling rather than hanging from the ceiling. They are commonly used in showers because they don't get wet. The process for changing a shower canister light bulb is basically the same as changing any other light bulb, but there are a few differences and considerations to keep in mind.

Skill level:Moderately Easy

Things you need

TowelStepladderWashclothReplacement light bulb

Instructions

1 Turn off the light switch controlling the canister light. Dry off the floor of your shower before attempting to change the shower's canister light bulb. This will prevent the stepladder from slipping, causing you to fall from the stepladder.

2 Position the stepladder beneath the shower canister bulb so that you can reach it.

3 Remove the lid to the shower canister bulb. Some lids twist off, whereas others simply pop up. If you're not sure which type yours is, try twisting it off first and if that doesn't work, try popping it off.

4 Remove the old canister light bulb by unscrewing it from the socket. Use a washcloth to protect your hand from a potentially hot bulb. Discard of the old bulb.

5 Screw the replacement shower canister light bulb into the light socket. Replace the lid to the bulb, and then test the bulb to see if it works.

Tips and warnings

Set your stepladder up slightly off centre from the light bulb. This will make it easier to change the bulb.

Set up a lamp close by if it's too dark.

Never attempt to change a light bulb with the power source to the bulb turned on to avoid electrocution.
