Answer: 
Hi,
This fixture must be hardwired in your home to a junction box. It will depend on your system so you should contact an electrician for a full installation appraisal.

Answer: 
Of concern is how many fixtures you are wiring into the same branch circuit. These pull about 1.5 amps each. A typical 15 amp branch shouldn't have more than 12 amps on it. With that idea, 6 or 7 fixtures should be the maximum for the typical 15 amp circuit. Run 14 gauge wire to each fixture and use wire nuts. The smaller orange ones will do nicely. Although there is some physical space under the metal Read More
Of concern is how many fixtures you are wiring into the same branch circuit. These pull about 1.5 amps each. A typical 15 amp branch shouldn't have more than 12 amps on it. With that idea, 6 or 7 fixtures should be the maximum for the typical 15 amp circuit. Run 14 gauge wire to each fixture and use wire nuts. The smaller orange ones will do nicely. Although there is some physical space under the metal cover, wire the fixtures from a common box instead of daisy chaining the wiring under that fixture over. Since these lights are often used in unfinished basements or garages, make sure to ground the fixture to prevent any electrical shocks. The metal frame is pretty thin and can flex or cause cuts to fingers or your wiring. Use cable clamps to protect the wiring.
While fluorescent lights do a great job of lighting the area, the zones at the ends of these lights can be a little darker. Make sure you physically place fluorescent lights so those areas are minimized. As an example, in a long hallway, place the lights close to doors in case you have to insert keys or work latches. This will reduce shadows. If you intend to wire several fixtures, use a better quality industrial grade switch to control the circuit. Cheaper ones will work but don't expect trouble free use for too long. If using metal boxes, make sure to ground the boxes too. Read Less

condensation is your enemy here. Make sure your bulbs are seated properly, remove and install them to make sure the connections are good. Condensation in humid areas causes problems like that. Arcing in switches and older electrical outlets are quite common too. In my large air conditioned facility, it is more common for ballasts to start arcing and melt down creating lots of smoke and even arcs shooting Read More
condensation is your enemy here. Make sure your bulbs are seated properly, remove and install them to make sure the connections are good. Condensation in humid areas causes problems like that. Arcing in switches and older electrical outlets are quite common too. In my large air conditioned facility, it is more common for ballasts to start arcing and melt down creating lots of smoke and even arcs shooting from the older fixtures. It might be more economical to keep the AC on during those humid periods versus the labor and parts to replace ballasts.
There is no permanent solution to your problem that I am aware of. It will help to clean your fixtures to remove accumulated dust, probably a yearly schedule if you can. The lights will draw dust to them and the condensation can make it hard to clean after it dries. Some newer ballasts have over current protection that can cause the problems you are having. As part of your cleaning, clean the ends of the bulbs too, where the actual power is applied. An old toothbrush will remove most dirt between the contact pins. Read Less

Answer: 
Hi,
Check the grounding on the fixture. If the fixture is not grounded properly you will experience erratic starting. Also check the lamp as they could be starting to go out. If you notice any gray, that would indicate that the lamps will need to be replaced.

4 ft. Wraparound Lens Fluorescent Ceiling Fixture is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 29.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good.... Replaced old kitchen fixture. Very easy, more light, energy star, and it is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You'll need your sunglasses! I bought this light for my kitchen because my old pendant light kicked the bucket on us. We have a large kitchen and we needed something that gives off enough light to illuminate every corner of the room so we can see what we are doing. It took me about 20 minutes to install everything. I chose the daylight T8 bulbs for this installation, and they are amazing. This light had zero delay from the time that I flipped the switch until the light came on. It was instantaneous! If you are not used to a lot of bright light, but would like to have just that so you can see what you are doing, this is light for you. It's crazy bright and definitely worth every penny. If I had a skylight in my kitchen I would imagine that you could see this bright light from space!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Ballast and no customer support Bought this product on line from Home Depot in March of 2015. Looks nice and was easy to install. Installed in a laundry room so usage was low to average. Light stopped working 9 months later. Here is where things get ugly. I called a repairman and paid $145 to get the problem diagnosed and repaired. Problem was a bad ballast. Home Depot says the product has a 1 year warranty on materials. I called Home Depot and they sent me to Lithonia Lighting. Lithonia Lighting will tell you they have 4 different ballast suppliers and it is up to you to contact them, since they do not warranty the ballast (funny, didn't say anything about ballasts not being covered in the Home Depot 1 year warranty). Seeing as the repairman took the ballast and disposed of it for me, I am out of luck. Needless to say I will steer clear of Lithonia products in the future.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from product is ok. I feel the product is a little bit on the "cheaper" side when compared to the cost. the lighting it throws is great, however, it should be with 4 bulbs in it. It serves its purpose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bright and easy to install Recently bought and installed 5 of these in my unfinished basement. Although they look good, the metal is flimsy with sharp edges. Being an older house, some of the ceiling joists were no longer level. The lights were to be installed perpendicular to the joists. Don't mount these lights directly to the joists if your ceiling joists are like that or you could bend them. Instead, mount two 1x4 boards spaced 3 1/2 inches apart to the ceiling. Level the boards and attach the lights to that. The oak ends were not all the same shade of color but in my case it wasn't important. I hope they last. They are very bright and make my newly painted basement look good. I wish I had done this years ago and got rid of those old yellow incandescent and CFL lights that were down there. They look good and installed easily. I would recommend them to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy with this light! Really like this fluorescent light with my kitchen. It was similar to one I had for over 30 years. Was quickly installed. I used the T-8 fluorescent bulb that was recommended. Lights up well. Looks nice, was reasonably priced. Am buying a second one for my kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Light Replaced a 20 year old T12 four bulb with this one in my kitchen.The new fixture was half the weight and theT8 bulbs are much brighter. I am very pleased with it. I just hope it will last at least half as long as my old one.
