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.

When you say 'bulb' ... I assume you mean the sewing light ? The Artista 180 does not have a conventional 'bulb' for the sewing light, but a fluorescent tube that's a 'C' shap and surrounds the bottom of the head unit by the needle. This is driven by a high-voltage converter that runs off a supply on the main processor board. If the machine is working normally but there's some intermittent on/off of the fluorescent light, it could be simply that the tube's had-it, in which case its off to the service man for a new one - it comes as a complete tube and converter replacement. But before you do that. TURN THE MACHINE OFF. unscrew the hex socket that holds the head cover on and remove the head cover (the cover over the needle end). If you look at the head mechanism, looking towards the foot pressure control (i.e. the 'end' of the sewing arm) you should see a small cirucit-board just above the fluorescent tube with a fairly large 2-pin connector on the top - this slides on to the circuit board. Try giving that a careful wiggle to re-seat the connections, but PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS IS A HIGH-VOLTAGE PART AND THEREFORE DANGEROUS, so you MUST NOT touch it with the machine switched-on. Hope that helps.

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.

-Replace the compact florescent bulbs with regular incandescent bulbs and see if problem continues.
-Lighting controls are made for different kinds of bulbs.
-Your package should say what the watt rating and type of bulb.

According to the PR180 manual:
-I am looking at the Leviton PR180 occupancy sensor manual, and the PR180 sell-sheet, and these documents say for incandescent and fluorescent (rapid-start magnetic ballast only).
-Compact fluorescent are supposed to have a magnetic ballast.
-The manual does not specifically say it works with 'compact fluorescent'
-The manual does not say there is a minimum amount of wattage either. Some controls will not work correctly if the overall wattage is low. Your overall wattage is 39watts.

Read the product package (if this is a new installation and you have the package)
Try the incandescent bulbs.
If the PR180 is not your product, add a comment with product number and I'll look for information

I installed a fan and it works good but the light


Is it a standard incandescent bulb or is it a compact fluorescent light? If it has a remote with a dimmer you shouldn't use a compact fluorescent bulb as they are not dimmable. CFLs may be damaged or damage a dimmer if they are used together.

Fluorescent light that keeps flickering


The ballast is a device that utilises and expanding/contracting electromagnetic field to create the high voltage which is needed to run fluorescent lights.

It is normally found behind the front cover or reflector part of the fitting and looks like a small box.

Replacement should normally be done by a person qualified in this field.
