ikea night lamp fuse fix

    This is my 3 night lamp from Ikea which fused so this time I really want to know if & how can I fix this?

    These are the common yellow moon, pink star shaped lights. Can someone please help.

    Possibly slightly cheaper on Amazon like this…D3J
    But reading this link (bulb size)…XJQ
    They are showing as 6.3 watts which is very low energy - you'd probably want 1amp fuse max

    But what do you mean it's fused? explain more

    We took two pink flower ones back last week and they gave us a voucher for the full amount as we had them over two years and I read an article that said they had been recalled in 2014. Thought it was worth a try and they never questioned it.

    Cut of the plug and replace with a plug where you can replace fuse (noting what
    previous fuse rating was)

    The suggested Ikea bulbs for these are fairly crap, I replaced them with 1watt LED bulbs from Amazon.

    I suspect the issue is putting higher wattage normal filament bulbs in them, as the bulb sits very close to the plastic; the heat may melt it and the plastic bulb holder.

    There is a maximum wattage warning of (I think) 35watts in the leaflet supplied, but who keeps all that paper junk??
