I have 2 nice floor lamps I think are repairable but I'm stumped. There is no maker info or parts list. I think it's the switches but have not found replacements that will fit in the stalk iof the lamp. Are they repairable or jut chuck them?

Post some images and lets see what you have there. They are lamps and I am sure we can find parts for it. Don't throw those out just yet :-)

If you can't repair the switches, bypass them and add a foot toggle floor switch in the power cord. If you can't find that, then just put a rocker switch in the cord.

You might be able to replace the switch, but they are usually more robust than the socket. Check for a bent or broken connection in the socket and for damage to the cord. Check the cord tip for indications that it has a fuse in the plug. Good luck. Post images!
