Customer Questions & Answers

What is meant by, "Non-integrated" in the title of this item?

This CFL bulb is the only bulb that is disclosed as "non-integrated" in its title What exactly does this mean? All of the other bulbs, regardless of wattage or base, do not identify themselves as "non-integrated" What is the difference between a "non-integrated" bulb, and the rest?
Asked by: Lightbulb
Non integrated means that there is no ballast built in the lamp. These lamps will require a separate ballast to operate the lamp.

I am having trouble removing my light bulb, any hints?

Asked by: Lenny
Normally PL-C lamps are just pulled out of the socket. They need to be grabbed from the plastic base and then pulled hard. There may be a few sockets that are twist and lock

Why don't my new bulbs work?

I have six ceiling fixtures. Bulbs work in only three of them. I know the bulbs are good because they work in the three good fixtures. These fixtures are wired to a3-way switch. My questions are: (1) Does the G24Q-3 Base wear out and sometimes need to be replaced? (2) Would the 3-way switch be causing a problem, even though half of the fixtures work correctly? (3) Where is the Electronic Ballast located that, according to the back of the bulb packaging, is required for these bulbs to work?

Do you have these in LED?

Does this have 3 cfl bulbs like the name indicates? Picture has 4 cfl bulbs!

Trying to replace (3) 26w 4-pin, 3cfl (in a triangle shape) with a total length of just = 5 inches each. Need these to replace the bathroom bulbs in downlight cans that came with a new home. Home Depot San Carlos California didn't have 3 bulb, but did have 4 bulb with 4 pins but length of 6 1/2" hangs out of cans. The description of this one says ~ 7 inches which would be worse. Why are there so many lenghts & choices. 1. Is this 3cfl like the name states & pictures is wrong? 2. What does Phillips of H.D. recommend to replace my current 26w 4-pin 3cfl in a triangle shape?

Where is the electronic ballast on these fixtures?

I'm increasingly thinking that the source of my problem is the ballast. But I don't have a clue where it might be located.
Asked by: Kenny
The ballast is located inside the fixture. The plug socket is connected to the ballast. Please make sure to turn the light off at the switch, as well as at the circuit breaker.

I had to purchase this one since there were no others that were unopened in the store. I was able to install another one. I suggest better quality control on returned items.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad, except for the lead and mercury! I use these in sconces. I had no trouble to install them, and I found that the lifetime of these bulbs was at least 4 years (used in a bathroom with 4 people in the house). I don't like that Home Depot in Montreal doesn't clearly provide a service to recycle these lead + mercury bulbs. I'm trying to find a LED alternative for this reason.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Only stay on a short while - and then cutout ... I bought two of these to replace the bulbs in a kitchen fixture for my mom. She was so happy that it was fixed, However, she later told me that after the light is on for a couple of hours, the light goes out. I had also replaced the light switch on the wall that same day I replaced the bulbs so I know the switch is good. And since these bulbs contain all the electronics built into the bulb, I can only assume that these bulbs were bad right out of the box .... going to replace the entire fixture and move to an LED model ...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from good bulb I was helped by staff to get the correct bulb and I had no trouble installing it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible-- just being honest This is a good contender for one of the worst light bulbs ever to try to install. I've slaved away a couple hours trying to install it before getting out a file and filing away the tabs (bumped plastic protrusions on either side of the middle block and spray on a PTFE lubricant to get it to slide into the light fixture. Oh, and by the way I saw the Philips "guarantee" that they will last 3 hours per day for min. of 2 years 7 days a week. Well I must just be having bad luck then because for the last 4.5 years I've been changing the 2 bulbs a min. of 1x per year-- I estimate they barely get 1.5 hours a day (being generous).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good bulb Wanted a CFL with a little warmer glow for kitchen instead of cool white. This really makes a warm glow and the cabinets stand out.
