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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 29 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by terrible It was seriously damaged, now I have to go to my "local Store" 15 miles away. Never again. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Solid-oak wooden ends look nice Compared to my old fixture, this is so much better! It doesn't make a buzzing noise, saves more electricity, and lights up faster. My T12 bulb lights up too, but it is not recommended for this fixture. It took me three hours to replace my old fixture. There are holes in the fixture, but they are too far apart. I had to drill holes in it to make it fit the existing pipes hanging from my ceiling. January 22, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. December 18, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very Straight Forward and ballast accepted new led t8 I purchased new led T8's, but they would not work in my old fixture. We tried with ballast in as there were "plug and play" led's, no. Tried bypassing ballast, no. Took out ballast...again a no. My old fixture had jumpers in it that did not match the opposite side jumpers, somebody goofed them up, I purchased this home at auction, what can I say... I yanked the entire fixture out as this was cheaper than an electrician. I was able to purchase this in stock at 8pm and by 9 pm (only 15 minute install) this was daylight to my old florescent fixture in my garage! Super easy install! November 5, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Broke again Ordered twice. Broke both times................... February 2, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Disappointed in quality Replacing a fixture with broken lens and bad bulbs and ballast. When to buy an LED fixture but they were out so ended up with this one. From the review the quality is inconsistent on assembly. My lens came out with a struggle and going back cracked at the end. I do not worry about the ballast as I gutted the thing and used direct wire LED. If I was planning on keeping it Fluorescent - it would be going back to Home Depot. September 11, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kitchen Light I was kinda worried when my husband decided on this light but fell in love with it after it was installed. He really lights up the kitchen and looks nice. I am really surprised how much I love it. September 1, 2015
