Questions & Answers

Will this work with 2 Phillips Instant Start LED bulbs?

Trying to replace incompatible ballasts in my kitchen lamps, both are 2 lamps each and I am trying to find a compatible ballast to work with them.
Asked by: Jay
This is an instant start T8 ballast, so if your LED bulbs are also "T8" instant start they should work fine..

Will this replace a Chenghe Elex: CH4032-120B

Asked by: Francois
This is for T8 bulbs, nothing fits exactly as the one that comes with the fixture, i had to drill a hole for the screw and for whatever reason it was wired a little differently but the diagram on it shows how it's wired.

AmbiStar 120-Volt 1 or 2-Lamp T8 Instant Start Residential Electronic Fluorescent Replacement Ballast is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Installation straight forward and clear with one exception. Older fluorescent ballasts are usuall... Installation straight forward and clear with one exception. Older fluorescent ballasts are usually in a twin lamp fixture and have two pairs of wires on each end. Typically one end has two red and two blue wires and the other end has four yellow wires. This ballast comes with a red and blue wire on one end and one yellow wire on the other end. The ballast comes with an installation diagram showing the yellow is a common wire for one end of the tubes. Connect the yellow wire from the ballast to all (2-4) wires on the one end of the fixture that are hopefully the same color and the red wire to the one pair of wires of a same color from the fixture and the blue wire to another pair of wires of a same color. If you are unfamiliar with electricity and electrical fixtures you should not attempt to follow this.

Reasonably easy to retrofit into T12 fixtures; converting them to use T8 bulbs. Yes, I would recommend the product for people who have some basic electrical wiring knowledge, the proper tools, and wire caps & electrical tape. Depending on the fixture, the user may need to understand the physical situation which could differ slightly from the wiring diagram.

My wiring colors did not match their schematic. Had to call Phillips Customer Service. The technician quickly diagnosed my problem and told me which color wires to connect. My fluorescent fixture has worked perfectly since.
