How do I repair a vintage rain lamp?

Answer

Rain lamps are fairly simple to repair, depending on what is wrong with it. To change the bulb, you should unplug the lamp. Then, using a paper towel, you should wipe down all fishing line. Unscrew the old bulb and replace with a new one. Next, check the pump by seeing if the blade wheel will move, if it does, it is good. If it does not move, it should be replaced. Old fishing line can be replaced by removing the old ones, tieing a knot in some new line and thread through until restrung. Tie the new end in a knot and secure into place.
