Questions & Answers

Does it matter which yellow wire goes to a red or a blue wired lamp? One position inop with known good tube.

All wires and sockets have continuity to the ballast.
Asked by: Phil
All the YouTube videos and DIY articles I read said yes. The same YouTube videos and DIY also gave me the same info on hooking this up with no issues, so I would trust them. If you are not sure, then I would say not to do it yourself. The cost in our area was $65 for someone to do this and I think that is worth more than a possible bigger problem.

Can this ballast be used with the new LED bulbs?

Can this ballast be used with the new LED bulbs?
Asked by: Rush
Yes, but you have to make sure that the LED bulbs being used are those meant to work as drop-in replacements for normal fluorescent tubes, i.e. work with existing ballasts. For example: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Philips-32W-Equivalent-Cool-White-T8-4-ft-LED-Bulb-10-Pack-469486/301154652 From bulb description: "Philips InstantFit 48 in. T8 linear LED light bulb is the easiest way to replace linear fluorescent light bulbs with an LED solution. An instant start ballast is required for use, with no modifications to the existing fixture that it houses and no rewiring necessary with this Instant Fit design."

If you need your existing 4-lamp lighting fixture to work and aren't ready to switch to LED (or darkness), then this ballast is for you. Like all ballasts, this is a mysteriously heavy black box with some wires sticking out of it. The wires are nicely color coded--that is, if you have enough light to see the colors and are not color blind, they are. There is even an electronic diagram on the label of the ballast that provides useful information. Remove the old ballast leaving enough of its mysterious colored wires to attach to the new ballast. Do this with the electricity off for increased chances of outliving the life of your ballast. If all goes well, your new ballast will somehow make the lights work through its embedded magic. Reward yourself with a beverage of your choice after successful installation. (Note--ballast does NOT come with choice of beverage.)

At first, I was confused about the wiring because I was replacing my old magnetic T12 ballast with this electronic T8, so the wiring was different from the old one. However, after going online to google and Youtube, I was able to figure it out. I will be replacing my other T12s with this model or similar.

Worked great but has a slight buzzing sound that I didn't notice with the last ballast. It also worked great with one LED replacement light that I installed. Once this burns out in apx 13 years (our last one lasted 13 years!), I will no longer use ballasts since by that time, all the lights should be replaced with LED type replacements.

Remove bulbs and ballast cover, remove old ballasts, attached new ballast, connect like colored wires, reinstall ballast cover and bulbs, DONE! Instant-on lights, no more delays and "flicking" the light switch up and down to finally get the light to turn on!!! Highly recommend!! Wife is Happy!

What I liked about this product over some other brands that I've used is that the leads on the ballast were long which eliminated double splicing the short wires. It also gave me the optiob of eliminating splices all together if I wanted to go directly to
