Put an LED bulb in. It should seriously brighten it up. I got the daylight brightness in mine, and it's beautiful! Those old incandescent bulbs almost seem like a joke to me! Haha!

My credo
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.
Check voltage at the bulb socket when it’s turned on. That will tell you if there’s a dirty or loose connection somewhere that you need to find.

Good enough
Check the voltage where the bulb goes. Report back here.

Check the ohm level to ground. Report back here.
