I have an in ground pool that is 30++ years old. The light wend out. I replaced the bulb and still does not work. The socket the bulb screws into was corroded. I tried cleaning it best i could. Next step I bought new housing with attached wire. Now I can not pull the wire backwards or forwards. The existing cord will not pull at all. I have tried from the J-box and from inside the pool. ANY suggestions??

Take a look at the following thread. Was any putty used in the light niche?
