Is there a screw so can remove it
This replacement part is sold at hardware and big box stores, maybe even Walmart. Take a picture or the piece with you to the store. Employees are familiar with this part. Go home with your treasure and go to U tube, replacing lamp hardware. It is actually very easy to fix. Watch the video, gather your tools and replacement part and you will become a lamp repair woman!! Follow the directions step by step.
The simplest, & cheapest way,...replace the socket. It cost about $2, & only requires turning 2 screws, & replacing with new socket. When you buy socket, ask person show how to remove,...a 5 year old can do it. Good luck!
This is a simple job, however, get someone that knows what to do.
If done wrong a possible fire can happen. Do you know a handy person ?? This is your're best and safest bet.
You can either replace the socket or get another "button" (comes in a little kit) that will screw into the socket. Just remove the broken piece with a needle nose plier after disconnecting the electrical cord.
I couldn't find any of the things to fix this so I used my needle nose pliers to turn it on and from that day forward, I just plug in and later unplug. lol
Hardware stores sell replacement switches. They just screw on where the old one was. I know, 'cause I've done it. 😉
If the little button screws out...easy fix! If not, replace the whole socket but this takes a bit of effort. May need to take felt/cardboard bottom off base of lamp, remove nut to loosen up entire assembly to remove and replace socket. Be careful with rewiring to prevent any electrical hazards!
If it is only the plastic switch button that is broken, all you have to do is to unscrew what is left of it and replace it with a new one. These are readily available at Lowes, Home Depot, etc. for very little cost.
