Do I have a 3 way lamp?

by Brian Knoblauch   Last Updated January 13, 2018 21:21 PM

I have a lamp that has a label on it saying that it's a 3-way. However, with a 3-way bulb in it I only get on/off just like it's a regular 1-way lamp. Wondering if the label is wrong on the lamp (bought it new, so I know it wasn't repaired) or if maybe it's broken somehow. Can I visually tell from the socket if it really is a 3-way or a mislabeled 1-way?
