Customer Questions & Answers

Can this be used as a replacement for R32AP ballast.

Have light fixture mounted on wall in closet. It's been working for 15 years since I bought house. Changing fluorsecent light bulb didn't work this time, so thinking maybe it's the ballast. Ballast is R32AP. It's a 4ft light with a single fixture.
Asked by: Derek
It will work with up to 3 T-8 bulbs may have to use self tapping screws to mount & wire nut the unused blue wires

I just replaced my old ballast with a new electronic ballast, but my light is very low. Do i have to change my old bulbs for the new fluorescent bulbs. thanks. DEE
It is always wise to change the bulbs at the same time. Once you install the bulbs turn the light off; and then on again, at the switch. (Be sure and get the right bulbs for the ballast that your using.)

Can i put a different ballast to my lamp or it has to be the same one style and how you no it does not work

Asked by: Joe
Hi, Joe. You can put a different ballast with your lamp, as long as it fits the specifications of that lamp. Ballast change over time, so a replacement will be slightly different, regardless. And you will know it does not work if you do not get any lighting to your lamp, after installation. Thank you. GE Customer Service

Customer Reviews

120-Volt Electronic Ballast for 4-ft. 2-Lamp T8 Fixture is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to install - RFI may be a problem This ballast is extremely easy to install, having less wires to connect than most. If you can follow the wiring diagram printed on the case, you should have no problems. However, the instructions say that it is for commercial use only. That perplexed me, as normally a commercial rated product is better and suitable for residential use. A close inspection of the label yielded a probable answer: It's FCC RFI (radio frequency interference) ratings are rather high. I tested it with a AM radio and confirmed this. The RFI isn't dramatic; it's only near the fixture while listening to a weak station that it's evident. But the flaw causes me to give it only four stars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent value I've been using these ballasts to replace old dead or dying T12 ballasts in my office. The upgrade to T8's is easy (sockets are the same). All you have to do is replace the ballast, which is the same length as older ballasts, but slimmer so they fit right in the same mount. The wiring is a little different, but the diagram is printed on the ballast itself. The huge plus to these is they are power factor corrected so the power consumption is as low as it can be, pay attention to the amp draw on the labels. The equivalent product with PF correction at a certain competitors store was 65% more expensive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Overkill for 110 volt fixture This replaced a Ballast that ran old technology 40 watt bulbs. I don't why anyone would buy a ballast that can handle 277 volts for a 110 volt fixture. The HD employees directed me to this one. It works great, but I replaced it with a 110 volt ballast, also from Home Depot for about $6 less. This and any other electronic ballast supporting T8 tubes (32 watts) will also operate well down to 0 degrees F. Lamps in old magnetic ballasts will begin flickering at about 50 degrees or colder. Another impetus for upgrading your ballasts beyond the 20% energy savings, the T8 tubes will put as much or more light. Both the slip that comes with the ballast and the label on the ballast give a bare-bones installation explanation.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very quiet (no hum) I bought this to replace an older electronic ballast that had died. The old unit made a very noticeable hum. This unit is completely quiet; no noise at all. The only down side is a slight (about 1 second) delay between when the switch is turned on and when the light actually turns on.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent price; Decent performance I bought this ballast when my old T12 ballast started to flake out. This ballast works pretty quickly when turned on and the T8 bulbs are a nice upgrade. The wiring is a little different between this and my old ballast but the wiring diagrams on both ballasts gave me enough information to figure it out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performed as expected The best part was having an individual in the store who was knowledgeable about what I needed and how to do it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy replacement. The Triad ballast on my closet fluorescent light went out and I need a quick replacement. After pulling the model information and heading to store I was able, with the help of an associate, to find the correct replacement. This replacement ballast fit perfectly into the holder and had long lead wires. I ended up using wire nuts to connect the wires to the existing sockets and after reassembling the fixture and installing the T8 tubes, it lit up just fine. My original fixture ballast lasted about six years so I hope this will last the same.
