A touch lamp has a touch-control box installed inside the body of the lamp. It connects between the lamp plug wires and the lamp wires connected to the socket. An additional wire connects to the metal on the lamp. It is this wire that gives the lamp the ability to turn the light on and off when you touch any metal on the lamp. The control box can be damaged by minor power surges. When this happens, the touch lamp will remain in the On or Off position. Resetting the touch lamp requires replacing the touch-control box.
