Answer: 
It is NOT a 3-way adapter, so technically the answer is "No". However, it will work as a standard lamp, that is, only one light setting. You will have 2 "off" positions and 2 "on" positions.

Answer: 
Since the light fixture is considered an H.I.D. (High Intensity Discharge), the bulbs will only accept what goes in it originally. That means, your fixture will only work with the same wattage and shape mercury vapor light bulb. Anything else won't work in the fixture, due to the ballast inside the housing. The other option to upgrade your fixture would be to change the fixture to a fluorescent or LED Read More

Oven light bulb

This question is from Socket Adapter for Mogul to Medium Base
Asked by
Orlando, FL
Read all my Q&A
February 3, 2016
The oven light bulb twisted out of its base. Then when I used needle nose pliers to get the base out the socket came with it all bent up. Is there a replacement for the socket? The socket threads into the porcelain fixture. The side and bottom contacts are still in place inside the fixture

Answer: 
If the threaded insert came out of the porcelain socket, the entire socket assembly (porcelain, threaded insert and all associated parts) needs to be replaced. This typically requires an electrician.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 34 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mogul The product was exactly as described the web, the Mogul is an adapter for an LED bulb, and it fit and functioned just fine. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Socket adapter for mogul to medium base Made my antique lamp functional again. Being able to use an LED bulb in it now is an added bonus. March 15, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mogul to standard converter We have an old floor lamp with a mogul socket. It was always difficult to find mogul base bulbs, and they burned very hot. This mogul-to-standard converter solved the problem. Works great. Only exception is that it will not provide three-way lighting. If you need three-way switching look for another solution. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Making old lights like new - GREAT PRODUCT I used this adapter in some very old porcelain light fixtures in my garage. It allowed me to get the old / retro light fixtures but allowed me to use more efficient LED bulbs. March 1, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mogul socket adapter Mogul bulbs are next to impossible to find and many older floor lamps have a mogul socket. This adapter allows the use of a standard base bulb. We use LED bulbs for best lighting. February 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by New life to an old lamp My grandmother recently brought down an old floor lamp from her attic. The main source of light was from a massive Mogul-type light bulb. These are much harder to find than one would imagine, though Home Depot does carry them. I opted instead to purchase this adapter base, which allowed her to use a regular light bulb in its place. She was very pleased that her old lamp now had new purpose, and that she would be able to purchase regular bulbs for it, instead of the harder-to-find Mogul bulbs. August 6, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Didn't Work Waited for 3 weeks for the item to arrive. When I screwed it in to the floor lamp, it didn't work. February 17, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to use This adapter allowed us to continue to use our antique lamp. The size bulb that the lamp required is no longer made, but we can now use any normal Bulb. June 15, 2014
