I have been having repeated failures of a lamp controlled by a X10 Powerhouse LM465 Lamp Module. Over the past several years I have replaced the socket on the lamp at least twice. Today I replaced a bulb that had been in use for over a year and found the contact on the base of the bulb was disfigured as if it had been soft or even melted at one time or another. This is a repeat of a problem I had a few years ago and why I have replaced the socket.
The bulb was a 50-200-250 three way bulb and that is what is commonly used in the lamp. Is it possible the LM465 is contributing to this problem even though I am below the 300 watt maximum or is there some other explanation as to why I am seeing this problem more than once in this particular lamp?
The bulb I replaced today was a GE. I don't remember what brands I have used in the past.
