Question

What color are the shades?

The shades look to be a blue-ish gray color in the picture, but I can't tell if it's tinted beause of the photo and the shades might actually be white or clear instead of blue.

Question

Can CFL bulbs of lower watt(like 26 watt or 13 watt) can be used in this lamp instead of normal bulbs of 60 Watt ?

Yes, CFL bulbs can be used. This website is misleading. The upper light takes up to a 150 watt 3 way bulb and the reading light takes a 60 watt bulb. These wattage limits only mean that it is the maximum wattage allowed in the lamps. So anything less then 150 watts for the upper light (i.e a 32 Watt 3 way CFL bulb) or 60 watts for the reading light (i.e a 13 watt CFL) is permitted and perfectly safe.

A 60 watt is to much for the lamp. The lower the wattage the better. I have a CFL bulb in mine and it works fine!

I think that the main concern is using too strong of a bulb because it is a fire hazard and can melt the shade. You should be fine using a lower watt. The max watt is the guideline you should be concerned about.

Anything 150 watt or lower. If you want to use the 3 light levels you will have to get a 3-way bulb with a max 150 watt or lower.

I use the energy efficient bulbs comparable to 60watts (I think they are 13 watt in the energy saving type).

THERE IS A RING SCREW THAT IS ON THE PART WHERE THE SAID GOES. UNSCREW THAT FIRST, THEN PLACE THE SHADE IN THE LAMP AND SCREW THE PIECE BACK ONTO THE LAMP. ITS ALL FITS, NOT DIFFICULT AND WILL MAKE SENSE AFTER YOU HAVE COMPLETED JUST ONE/.

If it were me I would google Mainstays, try to find their phone number and tell them the model that I have. It might work. That would be my only guess. I did that once with a dvd remote that I lost and it worked. I got a new one.

Question

Trouble with the light going off?

My light seems to get hot and go off. I have turned it off and back on but it will only stay on for a short time. Recently I noticed there are red and green lights on the floor foot switch. When I turn on the light a green light comes on to the right of the foot switch button. When it goes off I look at the light and it is now red. Does anyone for sure know why this occurs or has anyone else experienced this issue?

I think you have a different lamp. This one doesn't have a floor switch. Are you using a bulb above the max watt that you are supposed to stay under. If so maybe it's over heating.
