Are you talking about the entire bulb or the base? Seems to be a basic medium base to me (ignore the two rivets). The bulb is something they sell at HD and other places. Maybe a type of CFL.

A "standard" lamp has what's usually called an Edison base, and that looks pretty much like one. Try an ordinary bulb before you go nuts looking.

im gonna try a standard bulb and see how it goes.

The base has the marking "dimmable CFL"
Just to be safe, turn the switch off, screw the bulb in and then turn it on with one finger.

It's a strange looking bulb but all the "parts" look right for a standard Edison base.

How many contractors does it take to change a light bulb? :laughing:

Update : So I tried a regular bulb , no good ,seems like the threads are different . It's not your "Edison" base.
What didn't work? Didn't screw in? Didn't light up? This is a strange one.

Take a pic or 4 of the bulb holder for us keeping in mind that we will likely tell you to change it.:laughing:

Details would be helpful. I suggest using the name & model # of the unit, and give the mfr. a call. Alternatively, take the bulb ("lamp") to an electrical supply or restaurant equipment outfit.
