    Aloha tinytrees. Thank you for your help. I connected the light and all works. I was confused by the 4 wire. Not a switchable ballast, but all is working fine. Thanks,,,, Rocke

Black to black and white to white, the green wire is the ground. the lighter colored wire is most likely for european connection if it is a switchable ballast.

4 lamp t5 fixture, 1 black wire, 1 white wire, 1 red wire. how do I wire this


Don't forget this is a 240v appliance so it must be fed from a 240v circuit breaker. Once you have a 240v circuit breaker you need to run 12/3 wire with ground from circuit breaker to a box near your fixture. The 12/3 wire with ground will have; 1 black, 1 white, 1 red and a bare ground wire. With the circuit breaker OFF, hook the wires up respectively to the same colors and ground the bare wires togather with a green ground screw in the box. Turn circuit breaker on.

Off hand it sounds like a loose connection. Do you know if you have aluminum wiring? This can be dangerous heating and contracting causing a spark when it comes loose.
It could be that the ballast doesn't have enough air flow around it. Gets hot and shuts down.
Do you have another ballast you can swap it out see if same thing happens?

Hello...need help.. replaced 600mh bulb then


Have you tried the switch yet? The plastic switches inside some ballast boxes don't do well with the heat produced by the ballast. You can try to simply bypass the switch and hard wire the ballast to the plug to test whether or not that might be your issue. If you need a new switch, just call Sunlight Supply directly http://www.sunlightsupply.com/hort/contact.aspx they should be able to send you a replacement switch.

96 inch fluorescent light only one bulb will burn have changed bulbs and balist


If it is wired correctly,the only thng left is the tomestones, the contacts that the bulb connects to. Try this ;switch the two wires from the one bulb at the ballast to the other bulb on the ballast. If the other bulb now lights then the new ballast is bad and need to be exchanged.
