    Lights not working, and can't find the ballast location

    The ballast is located down by the compressor if you take off the cover the ventilation slats. Then in the very center where there is a plug from the compressor plugged into the side of the center support as a cover on the front of that open the cover and inside you'll find The ballast.

    If all lights off on my coca cola commercial cooler now, is that because ballast issue?

    Or it could be a problem with the light switch(with most commercial coolers, there's a light switch near the thermostat, if not, it may be hidden somewhere else on the machine.) Before replacing the ballast check to see if you have power coming to the ballast with a voltmeter. If you do, either the ballast is bad or all of the lights are bad(not likely, but possible).
    If you don't have power coming to the ballast then go back to the light switch and see if you have power before the switch, if you don't, there's a wiring problem before the switch, if you do, the switch is your problem.

    Flourescant lights flickering

    is there a ballast or a starter? if there is a starter (little silver metal or white plastic can), then replace the transformer inside the lamp housing. if there is a ballast (long black rectangle with many wires) and you replaced that and the lamp, then there must be a power drain in the unit somewhere.

    I need to replace the ballast on my GDM 12 freezer and I need to know where the balast is located

    The ballast is located on the bottom inside wall where the compressor is located. Its usaually mounted, and can be easily removed and replaced. The ballast is rectangular in shape and has a few wires protruding from each end. To replace simply dismount the bad ballast and clip the wires. Match the ballast to a new one, reattach the wires using wire nuts, and remount ballast.

    Where is the ballast in a true commercial coke refrigerator?

    It depends on the manufacturer of the specific unit you have, but most of the flouresant light ballasts are installed on the top of the unit either on the back of the top illuminated name panel, or on the actual top of the unit. I have seen some that had the ballasts installed at the rear of the unit and even down in the lower section where the compressor is located.

    You'll need to look around as each manufacturer has different specs for their particular units and without the wiring diagram, it is difficult to provide an exact answer to your question. If you remove the cover plate to the bottom section or look on the back of the unit, you might find the wiring diagram that could include a schematic and a line drawing showing the placement of all major components. With a little effort on your part, you should be able to find it.

    Interior Lighting on True Refrigerator Unit

    A starter may be located in the top area inside the cooler. Not all true coolers have starters. Check the connections where the light pins slide into. Also may need new ballast.

    Ballast location?

    the ballast is right in the middle. you should see an electrical cord. open the 2 screws from the ballast cover. then unscrew the top and bottom screw from the ballast. the ballast should come off. cut the wires closer to the ballast, so that you can identify the wire with the new ballast, which will have the same color scheme.
