Customer Questions & Answers

does this ballast work with 2-96" bulb units

Asked by: fredsam
No. It will take a larger, different ballast for the 96 inch bulbs. This one will only handle up to the T-20 bulbs.

will this ballast work with F40T12 rapid start lamps?

Asked by: Dave
No, there is a specific ballast available for the 40 watt t12 lamp. You would be money ahead by installing a t-8 replacement ballast,and using t-8 tubes, as the t-8 tube has become much more common that the t-12

The noise does stop in a couple seconds when the lights fully illuminate. I used this in a fixture with 2 T12 two foot 20 watt tubes. When I researched this ballast I noticed the specifications did not fully match the original (.75A original vs .5A on this) but the salesman told me it's OK because they've become more efficient. Didn't make any sense to me at the time but ... I actually was going to use a ballast I already had for 2xT12 4 foot by 40 watt fixtures but no one could tell me if I could do that, including the GE "888-GE-ballast" help line who also told me this ballast should be fine regardless of the power rating differences.... Frustrating. It does work but I'll probably look for a replacement. It's in the pantry so it's not as annoying as it could be. So far we've tolerated it the past few weeks.

Installation was straightforward. Light would not function. Had ballast tested, test showed 'open', I.E. no continuity. Wasted 3 hours of my busy weekend on this ballast. Store refunded my purchase, with no problems. Hence, my 1 star review. Had there been an option for no stars, that would be my choice.

This magnetic ballast is noisy on start up and the lights flickers. After several seconds it does settle down and provides a constant light output. For a few more dollars a better choice is an electronic ballast. I do not recommend this product.

Did not work with a T8 fixture with 4 lamps even though they are wired in pairs. This is my fault, not the ballast fault. When I used a 4 bulb ballast the fixture worked fine. I will use this to replace a 2 bulb fixture when one goes bad.
