Customer Questions & Answers

My old t-12 ballast has a different wiring set up then this T-8 ballast.

My old t-12 ballast had, on the right side, two red an two blue wires. On the left side there is two yellow, a white, and a black wire. On this T-8 are two blue wires and one red on the right side and a black and a white on the left side. Do I run the red wire to the left side and hook that one up with one of the tombstone sockets and then run a jumper wire from that tombstone to the other tombstone?
Asked by: hossridr
I removed all of the old wires except the black, white and green then used the new ones as on the wiring diagram.

Witll this screw in exactly where my old one resided?

One of my two B232I120RH-A Ballasts is dead, and I'd like to replace the dead one with this GE. Do the screw location match or some additional arrangement will be required? Thanks!!
Asked by: upen
Most likely not. You will need to drill or punch a new hole for the screw in order to secure it in place.

are these ballast universal fit, as long as they are the same specs? I am trying to replace a Pacific Ballast EB-232IS-120-RES 2 lamp fixture
Asked by: Baytown
I don't remember what the brand was that I replaced - but I did just try to match specs. You will need to re-wire of course as the new ballasts are slightly different. But I would think it should work fine.

120-Volt Electronic Ballast for 4 ft. 2-Lamp T8 Fixture is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 43.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Ballast This is an excellent ballast that I used in two existing fluorescent fixtures to convert them the LED tubes. One can buy a new fluorescent fixture for about $25 dollars that is LED tube compatible, but if you'd like to keep an existing fluorescent fixture, then this is the way to go. You only need to open the existing fixture, remove the old ballast, and wire in the new one. It's very easy to do - the wiring diagram is on the front of the ballast. This ballast drives the tubes separately (parallel connection) so if you have a two-tube fixture and one tube goes bad, the other one will still light up. In the cheap fluorescent fixtures, the tubes are wired serially so both tubes have to be good to function.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well so far I didn't give the fifth star since their instructions were not any good. Had to get on the web to figure out how to wire it into my existing fixture. I couldn't find a new two bulb shop fixture similar to what I had - and I liked it - so I replaced the ballast. Also, I wanted to use some LED tubes instead of fluorescent. I got it done and the new LED tubes work great in it. Home Depot is the cheapest place I have found to buy those Phillips LED tubes (Daylight) - I have them in several fixtures now and so far so good and the ballast seems to be very quiet. Was it easy to install? Depends on what you call easy. If you have a wire stripper, wire nuts and some time, then yes, it was easy. I did have to put a new screw hole in the housing to secure the ballast since this ballast was longer than the original.
