Evening all,

I changed the lamp in my dining room (ceiling light) for an LED one this evening.

When I took the old bayonet out, I noticed the plastic around the outside of the lamp holder was very hot. Could this just be due to the fact it was an old incandescent lamp therefore giving off a lot of heat? Is it normal or could it be a loose connection?

The flex between the lamp holder and the ceiling rose was cool.

Thanks in afvance
