Customer Questions & Answers

will this work with a 40 watt and a 32 watt

on the package it says it only uses a 32 watt and a 22 watt circline bulb
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello mas82579. Unfortunately the "HomeDepot associate" that answered your question used "doublespeak" and effectively didn't inform nor answer your needs. This happens too many times at that store and something should be done about it! Answering with no answer is not better than not answering, at least say we'll look it up! THE ANSWER: YES it will work with a 40 and 32W set of fluor-bulbs! The way you can tell, and this is where the "associate" was partially correct in stating to follow GE directions, is their wiring diagram specifically shows that specific combo. Furthermore, GE's cryptic message says: "Application 2- FC12T9, FC16T9, FC8T9, FC12T9" which really means: You can use the the following combos: two FC12T9 bulbs, or one FC12T9 with either one FC8T9 or one FC16T9.

Does this ballast have two plugs, one for each bulb? My fixture has a Sunpark SL15T electronic ballast with a plug for each bulb, one 32W and one 22W.

Will the GE Rapid Start Ballast for a 22-, 32- or 40-Watt 2-Lamp Circline (Model # 89720) work with two T9 32 watt bulbs?

On the actual package it says to use with one 22 watt T9 bulb and one 32 watt T9 bulb. Will it work with two T9 32 watt circuline bulbs?
Asked by: Anonymous
Hello Valued Customer, Thanks for your question and interest in this item. Per the vendor this item will not work with two TP 32 watt circline bulbs. This unit is for use with 22-, 32- or 40-watt 2-lamp circline fixtures. You can however contact your local Home Depot store to special order GE part # 89717 – GEM1FC12T9RS120 (the stores does not stock this SKU). You can also contact the vendor direct at 1-877-959-8688 to obtain this part. I hope this helps! To locate a store near you, please click on the “store locator” found on the top of each page. If you have any additional questions, please contact our Online Customer Service department at 800-430-3376. Thanks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from works great, very easy to install works great, easy to install, but a little pricy. really should be a lot cheaper

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 3 out of four of them are bad right out of the box I've been making so many trips to HD to return these it's ridiculous. Girlfriend has two fixtures, so I needed two ballasts. First one I got did NOTHING when I flipped the switch, second one worked. Returned number 1, got another. This one tries to light, but just flickers half dim. Returned that one, got another: That one won't even flicker the bulbs. Back to store, for a fourth one...guess what, it halway lights the small bulb, but the large bulb...NOTHING. ARGH!!! I'vew gone back and forth with these. Change the units, left to right to verify my wiring is on, put it up, take it down. Test them using an outlet and extension cord before putting them up in my ceiling. Take bulbs from one and put them into the other. You name it, I've tried it. These things are just junk and if you get a good one you are just lucky. These darned things should be pulled from the shelf!!!! Don't waste your time.
