Check your bulb wattages

Most light fixtures list the maximum wattage bulb somewhere on or near the socket of the fixture.  A bulb of too high a wattage may overheat the socket or fixture wiring and result in damage to the light fixture, or possibly a fire hazard.  You should never exceed the maximum specified bulb wattage for the fixture. Note: do not just assume the bulb you are removing from the fixture is the correct wattage.  Most enclosed fixtures specify a maximum wattage of 60.  If you cannot locate the specified bulb wattage, you may try contacting the manufacturer.
