Questions & Answers

I am replacing an older magnetic ballast that has 4 wires, black, white, red, and blue. How do I ...

I am replacing an older magnetic ballast that has 4 wires, black, white, red, and blue. How do I run this with an additional blue wire. My fixture is a two lamp, F96T12, single pin. The fixture is currently wired with a red wire to a pin socket, blue wire to a pin socket, white wire to a pin socket, black wire to a pin socket?
Asked by: John
The colors are not so important here , rather where the wires go. Connect the red wire from the new ballast to both the blue and red from the plunger lamp holders using a single connector or wire nut. (per Fig 2 photo in instructions that come with the ballast) Connect the blue wires, 1 blue each to two wires from each fixed lamp holder which are black or white. (per Fig 1 photo in instructions that come with the ballast) Connect the black (hot) wire from the ballast to the black wire from the ceiling and connect the white wire to the white from the ceiling. Do not connect the black and white wire from the ballast to any of the lamp holders. Hope this helps. Photos in the instructions show it clearly.

Asked by: JT
just leave the wires for second lamp as it is but secure it with tape nicely otherwise you know what will happen. just remember to shot wires together for the first lamp. look into diagram of behind the ballast or instruction page that came with the ballast.

Are these ballsts for HO Fixtures

Asked by: ddt
Nope. These ballasts are for two 75 watt lamps, 150 watts max. Look for other ballast that can handle 110 watt lamps.

What is the temperature rating for this balast?

I need a ballast for my unheated garage, not inside my house
Asked by: Quick
I have 6 of them in my unheated garage they work but on cold mornings (below 25 degrees) they are pretty dim but useable below 32 they are noticeably dimmer.

120 to 277-Volt Electronic Ballast for 8 ft. 2-or 1-Lamp T12 Fixture is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 39.

It includes a good set of instructions with photos- follow those and you will be fine. It will be with different colors than the present wiring of the lamp. Just pay attention to where the wires go. It is easiest to cut the old wires as directed and connect them to the wires from the new ballast with wire nuts. Even easier, use "In-Sure push in wire connectors" also sold here. Connect black wire to black wire from ceiling and repeat for white. I hoped to find something less expensive but the fact is they don't even make 8 ft fluorescent fixtures anymore, so this is what it costs to extend the life of an obsolete lamp.

In fact a splice of a 2nd wire is needed to connect to both bulb receptacles. The diagram is confusing to anyone other than electrician. When I went back to Home Depot to ask why the ballast was not working, I ask to see someone in "electrical. 10 min later I again went to the customer service and asked to see someone in electrical. 10 minutes later, after no one arrived I left. Lots of hardware stores in town other than Home Depot.

That's annoying enough but the ends of the wires were twisted from wire nuts, so someone else tried it & returned it to the store. Somehow it ended up back on the shelf. Anyway the 2nd worked fine & I'm still giving it 5 stars. It doesn't hum & if one bulb is bad or taken out the other bulb still works. I never saw a fluorescent light do that.
