Unplugged Hood power cord

I was recently moving my ballast and the power cord that goes into the hood unplugged while the power was on and then I plugged it back in while it was on and now the light wont come back on. Did I blow the bulb or is their something else run.

More than likely , if you haven't tried it since you found it would not work after plugging it in again , it will work after it cools and will restart the lamp . The ballst is designed not to restart right away to protect the components and bulb . Usually after about 10 mins of killing the power or turning off the switch or timer and reconnecting the cord , the fixture will work again . Try that ! John

YES THE POWER BEING SHUT OFF THEN ON WITHOUT THE LIGHT SWITCH BEING INTHE OFF POSITION BLEW YOUR LIGHT BULB. IT COULDN'T BE ANYTHING ELSE UNLESS YOUR CORD HAS A FUSE. CORDS WITHA FUSE ARE FAT AND ODDLEY SHAPED AT THE END U PLUG INTO THE LIGHT.

Can't plug 400watt ballast into a digital timer,bulb won't light.


How did you connect the 2 cords if they don't match up ? Usually the cord configuration on just about anything electrical is for a reason . It is to keep from plugging inthe wrong things ! It is possible that your digital ballst won't run your fixture due to miss matched intternal parts . One may be magnetic and one digital electronic .

One of my two hps bulbs is brighter than the other one the bulbs and one of the ballast are new the other ballast is a year old


Hi .. it could be the ballast .. an easy thing to do to troubleshoot this would be to swap the lamps. If the problem follows the lamp. then that is the problem. If the pronblem stays with the fixture, then I would replace the ballast in that fixture.

Currently using a 1000watt and a 600watt system within a 100 amp breaker panel. Although on different circuits, the 600watt has trouble initiating. Both are on ballasts. Thanks


A 20amp breaker with 12ga romex wire can handle, a continuous
draw of 1920 watts.

If you positive that they are on there own circuit they have more that enough power.

Say they weren't on there own circuit, it would trip the breaker.

So it sounds like the ballast is going bad.

I have a floralux 400hps light that siopped working. there is an oily substance that came from where the onboard ballast rides. I'm assuming that the ballast is shot. Is it replacable, where do I puchase...


Souds like the capacitor has leaked. It should have some numbers on it and can probably be replaced for less than ten dollars -hell with a complete ballast kit or new ballast!
Good luck & be sure to unplug the thing before taking it apart. Mark your wires and be careful not to get zapped in case the capaitor is still retaining some power (you can short the leads to be sure). Dan in Des Moines
