I have a 4 bulb 4ft fluorescent light fixture in my kitchen. I need to replace the ballasts in it...

I have a 4 bulb 4ft fluorescent light fixture in my kitchen. I need to replace the ballasts in it. It has two ballasts and 4 40watt bulbs. My questions is, is this the right replacement ballast? The ones in there right now are ES240RTP but they are discontinued.
Asked by: Mike
I will send you a list of compatible ballasts, but before you buy a ballasts check to see if it is the fuse. I was not able to send. I will check your ballast against the list and try to send you the list a different way. Sometimes you may not find a compatible ballasts because it may be to old. You may have to go the LED route.

Will this be a suitable replacement for an Advance REL-4P32-SC ???

Will this be a suitable replacement for an Advance REL-4P32-SC ???
Asked by: RonC
If you can replace the ballast with very little work is o.k. If not and you have enough space go the LED route for new complete unit. Your will save more in the long run on electricity.

Will this ballast work with the Phillips 456590 L.E.D. tube?

Asked by: Bill
I don't think so because I tried it and the ballast needs to be disconnected, in addition if the fixture is to old it also many need to be replaced (may not be comparable). The manuf. will give you a list of fixtures for your to compair to your led LED. I tried sending the list but was not able.

AmbiStar 120-Volt 3 to 4-Lamp T8 Instant Start Electronic Fluorescent Replacement Ballast is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Inaccurate online description To clarify, this is a ballast suitable for 4' or 3' lamps, not for 4 or 3 lamps. Actual packaging describes as only being for 4 lamps, 4' or 3' long.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy install, product description could be better In the online site the image for the product shows it as a GE120-Volt Electronic Ballast for 4 ft. 4-Lamp T8 Fixture. Evidently that product was discontinued and the item that replaced it was the Philips AdvanceAmbiStar 120-Volt 3 to 4-Lamp T8 Instant Start Electronic Fluorescent Replacement Ballast. The Store personal finally figured that out after about an hour. The image that iis online was never updated, so I was not sure it was the correct item and would work in the fixture. But it works quite well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from T12 to T8 Upgrade I have two four-lamp fixtures in the kitchen. Each has two magnetic ballasts. A lamp went out and I was out of spares. I decided right away to get ahead of the T12 phase out and do a retro-fit on the existing fixtures. I installed one electronic ballast in each fixture paying attention to wiring as in this case I was converting from Rapid Start to Instant Start. I replaced all the lamps with Phillips T8 Kitchen and Bath mainly for a warmer color. The result is more and better quality light, quieter and cooler. The energy savings is a bonus. By utilizing the existing fixtures in place I saved at least $50 and time. The lights in my kitchen tend to be on for long stretches of time. With installations that have a lot of on-off cycles, consider a Rapid Start Ballast for longer lamp life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ballast for Lithonia Lighting Model # DMW 2 54T5HO MVPS90 2-Light 4 ft. White T5 High Output Fluorescent Wet-Light Strip This is the ballast for Lithonia Lighting Model # DMW 2 54T5HO MVPS90 2-Light 4 ft. White T5 High Output Fluorescent Wet-Light Strip. It is not carried in Home Depot stores but the sales people do not know that in any of my local stores. I have wasted a lot of time and money trying to repair these lights as a result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to install Works as expected. Simple to install. Just cut old wires, strip insulation, remove and replace old transformer, connect w. wire twist caps. A 15 minute project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great upgrade to my fluorescent fixtures Upgraded to these Phillips Ambistar ballasts and the well rated Philips 4 ft. T8 32-Watt Soft White (3000K) bulbs and significantly improved the light quantity & quality from the two 4-bulb fixtures in my home office... Other benefits: I eliminated the buzz I was getting from the older T12 40-watt bulbs and ballasts... and the energy savings should easily pay for the new ballasts & bulbs within 2 years. Installation was straightforward by just following the diagram on the new ballast.
