Questions & Answers

Can this ballast be used with the new LED bulbs?

Can this ballast be used with the new LED bulbs?
Asked by: Rush
Yes, but you have to make sure that the LED bulbs being used are those meant to work as drop-in replacements for normal fluorescent tubes, i.e. work with existing ballasts. For example: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Philips-32W-Equivalent-Cool-White-T8-4-ft-LED-Bulb-10-Pack-469486/301154652 From bulb description: "Philips InstantFit 48 in. T8 linear LED light bulb is the easiest way to replace linear fluorescent light bulbs with an LED solution. An instant start ballast is required for use, with no modifications to the existing fixture that it houses and no rewiring necessary with this Instant Fit design."

Asked by: David
Hello, David. Unfortunately, there is enough of a difference for some of the specs, that it would not be recommended to use this GE ballast to replace the other one you have mentioned. Thank you. Scott GE Customer Service

Detailed wiring diagrams and instructions

The two yellow wires each go to 2 bulbs, can I use a jumper between just the bulbs, and does there have to be a splice so the yellow is actually going to both bulbs and a jumper in between them?
Asked by: Rod
Diagram is printed, just as you see on the front of the ballast. Wiring for four bulbs is very simple and with LED bulbs, cost effective.

120-Volt Electronic Ballast for 4 ft. 4-Lamp T8 Fixture is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 116.

This in combination with four LED bulbs makes it a no brainier to change from florescent . To change the old two ballasts and florescent bulbs out takes about 10minutes (20 min first one and then about ten after you get process down) and I have had several of these working now for two years... and no issues. The lights also come on faster and even when cold (which in some areas is a nice feature). I strongly recommend this product and will never waste time replacing a standard ballast or even bulbs again... One bulb goes out in a fixture, I just replace the bulbs and ballasts.

If you need your existing 4-lamp lighting fixture to work and aren't ready to switch to LED (or darkness), then this ballast is for you. Like all ballasts, this is a mysteriously heavy black box with some wires sticking out of it. The wires are nicely color coded--that is, if you have enough light to see the colors and are not color blind, they are. There is even an electronic diagram on the label of the ballast that provides useful information. Remove the old ballast leaving enough of its mysterious colored wires to attach to the new ballast. Do this with the electricity off for increased chances of outliving the life of your ballast. If all goes well, your new ballast will somehow make the lights work through its embedded magic. Reward yourself with a beverage of your choice after successful installation. (Note--ballast does NOT come with choice of beverage.)

Replaced the ballast in a discontinued 4-bolt fluorescent fixture when, originally, I was going to simply replace the entire fixture. However, because of ceiling discoloration around the fixture, decided that replacing the ballast and keeping the existing fixture was the easiest possible outcome. Toughest part of the job was removing the fixture from the 10-ft ceiling so that I could access the old ballast removal screws. Once the old ballast was out, the new ballast was a simple replacement. All wire colors matched perfectly plus the extra long wires enabled me to cut and splice all wires as needed. You will need small wire nuts to complete this installation, as up to eight wires may need to be "adjusted". This is a relatively simple, do-it-yourself task, but it does take a little while to cut and splice the wires to make it look factory original.

Installed in less than 15 minutes or less. To make it easier, I just pulled out the old wires and put in the new ones 1 by 1.

It was not an exact duplicate of the one I replaced but worked very well. One of the wires was on the opposite end of ballast from the one I replaced.
