On the LEFT is what I just bought today — Globe Electric 4W (40W Equivalent) Daylight (5000K) Dimmable LED Light Bulb, G9 Bi-Pin Base, 400 Lumens, 15,000 H. Here's Globe Electric's Dimmer Compatibility List.
But this LED fails to fit steadily into my IKEA November Lamp. I must nudge and hold this LED with my fingers into the socket to secure this LED in position, and for this LED to illumine! As soon as I remove my fingers, the LED stops illumining! How do I fix this?
Which side of the LED is the correct one? I tried to insert both sides into the socket. I think Picture 1 is the correct side, as I explained in my picture below.
The RIGHT is NOMA 40W G9 Halogen Bulb that has always fit snugly into my IKEA November.
