CFL Does Not Work in Old Fixture
I replaced an R-40 CFL recessed ceiling reflector bulb (23 watts) with the same type of bulb and it does not light. Tried a standard screw-type CFL and it does not work. Tried a 75 watt incandescent and it works. Why doesn't the CFL work??? There is another identical recessed fixture with CFL on the same switch which works fine.
The fixture is a 20-year old, 7 Inch recessed ceiling fixture (23 watt bulb has equivalent light output to 100 watt incandescent).
