Most fridges use either a friction tab or or gravity to secure the translucent plastic window cover on the inside over the lamp. The owner's manual should provide detailed instructions. Avoid using a plain screwdriver for prying, as hard plastic often cracks or breaks at the tabs. For gravity held covers, simply slide the cover upwards to detach it and then pull gently outwards to release it. Unplug the fridge when changing the bulb and use a 40 Watt lamp especially made for refrigerators. Do not get confused at the store and buy the one marked "Oven" as they look the same from the outside. Many larger supermarkets carry such lamps, they are cheaper there than at specialty stores.

I change my bathroom vent light. Before light went out. When I would turn the light on. It just came on. Now with new light, it flickers then comes on. And my hall bathroom started doing it too once I...


It sounds like you have indeed bought fluorescent bulbs. manufacturers are encouraged to replace the incandescent bulbs with more energy saving fluorescent bulbs. They are made to look like standard bulbs so you need to look at the package carefully to see the difference. The Nu Tone and other special bulbs may still be available in the old filament style for a while but you may have to look harder or ask if they are still available. The amount of flicker often reflects the quality of the bulb. It will sometimes decrease over time.

We have Lithonia 2 bulb fixtures in a recessed ceiling. We currently have 2 (25) watt bulbs in them. What wattage can I upgrade to ??


The ballast inside the fixture is rated to operate 2 25w bulbs. You can't put higher wattage bulbs in this fixture, unless you change the ballast. Sorry.

Fixture not working after bulb change


"CFLs" Compact Fluorescent Bulbs (with built in ballast) must be labeled as dimmable to be used on a dimmer circuit.

Traditional fluorescent fixtures must have a dimmable ballast installed inside and can be used with standard fluorescent lamps.

Fluorescent lamps must be sized to match the ballast. CFL's are matched at the factory, but others are not. Older fluorescent lamp fixtures have a ballast inside. A type rating is to operate (2) 48 inch / 40 watt lamps. Newer fluorescent lamps are rated for 32 watts, and these will not work - or will have a greatly reduced life.

If you installed CFL's, the first thing I would do is install regular incandescent lamps and see if it works as expected. If not, something else is wrong - otherwise - make sure you've got the right lamps in the fixture.

A 40 W fluorescent lamp gives out more light than a 4o W filament bulb.explain whether the fluorescent lamp is actually using electrical energy at the same rate as the filament bulb??


The lamps are both using 40 watts of energy, but the fluorescent lamp gives more lumens (visible light measurement) than the incandescent.
Fluorescent gives at least 5000 lumens for 100 watts.
Incandescent gives 1750 lumens for 100 watts.
You can see that if you had a 100 watt incandescent, it would be 1750 and you would only need 35 watts of flourescent.

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.
