I replaced my buzzing T12 ballast with this and voila, no more buzzing! Anyone not familiar with the replacing a T12 with a T8 may find it a bit unnerving if the wiring looks different. I know I was a little concerned. A little Google search gave me the answer I was looking for. My T12 ballast had 2 blue wires and 2 red wires going

I bought Feit LED tubes from Costco that were direct replacements for fluorescent tubes. They actually worked but would black out after being on for a while. I traced the problem to the ballast in those fixtures. That ballast was not rated for low wattage tubes, so thermal protection would shut down the fixtures after an hour or so.

I've been converting old T12 magnetic fixtures around the house to T8 LEDs. The first few ballasts I purchased (from well-known brands) caused horrendous FM radio interference anywhere in the house when turned on. They seemed to be back-feeding the interference into the wiring, despite me ensuring they had exceptional grounds. I didn't

When the relatively-new 4-bulb T8 fluorescent fixture in my kitchen suddenly stopped working, I was afraid I'd have to buy another new fixture. Not so! I found this replacement for my Espen VE432120MIP ballast, and fifteen minutes after it arrived, I had it installed and the lights back on. All the wires were the same colors as the

This ballast was used in an inexpensive repair to an existing four-bulb fluorescent light fixture. Rather than replacing the tombstones and re-wiring the fixture to accept direct-wire T8 LED bulbs, I decided to simply replace the ballast and the bulbs in the fixture. The fixture is in my basement hobby room. Re-wiring it and getting

Got this to replace a noisy magnetic ballast that's powering Feit 14w LED lamps. Works initially, but then cuts out and won't turn back on unless the lamps are removed and reinstalled. And it's not a defective sample anomaly, a replacement ballast did the same thing. If you have plug-and-play LED's, then use Sylvania/Osram or Advance

I bought this ballast to replace the EnergyPro ballast that came in my Lithonia Model 11986. That's the low-profile 15" two-bulb fixture that used to be sold by the big box home improvement centers. These fixtures use a 22w 8" and a 32w 12" bulb.Installation is not too bad. You need to take the fixture off the ceiling, put the 8" bulb

I just installed one of these in a circular fluorescent light fixture having an inner 12" (32 watt) circline tube and a 16" (40 watt) circline tube. This ballast had slightly different dimensions that the oddball Chinese ballast that was originally in the fixture, so I had to drill two new holes and use self tapping sheet

I never would have guessed that my flush mount ceiling light would have a bad ballast after only six years. This was an exact fit and the light fired up after replacing. Of course, I had new tubes because that was the first thing I checked when the light didn't work. When those didn't work, I checked for voltage at the ceiling

I maintain all lighting at a small private school with 130 fixtures, each with 4x F32T8 bulbs. This is the best price I have found for this type of ballast and so far they have been very reliable. However, even at this lower price point for ballasts, I've started to transition to direct wire LED bulbs which don't require a ballast.

With the weather going Tropical on East Coast, I installed Four T8 UV-C Lights under my house to prevent Fungal growth and spiders etc. Used plain White Romex wire and a timer. Grounded the Ballast body at the fastening screw - it does not have a grounding wire or green screw on it. Inserted hot and Neutral wires at opposite end sockets.

I removed the over where the ballast and wires run. Although I had originally tested this light, my tester beeped where the house wiring comes into the light fixture but no power leaving the ballast.In my case what I didn't do is pull the house wires out where I could see that connection. Well I didn't do that, so I assumed the issue was

This ballast is electrically noisy. It is noisier than the AccuPro ballast it replaced.

The circline light stopped working in one of our Hunter fans. It turned out to be the ballast. This unit was cheap and works perfectly. The bulb connector is standard and works fine. I had to splice the 120V connector from the original ballast on to this one, then it was plug and play. The wires were far longer than needed for my

My fluorescent circleline fixture, purchased about 5 years ago, was acting intermittent. Of course I replaced the bulb, but that did not help. The ballast was the only other suspect as the cause. The old ballast was sort of built-in to the fixture, but there was plenty of room for the Sunpark LC-12014T.I ordered the Sunpark and it

My kitchen light is so awkward to work with due to the size. I had replaced one of two ballasts several years ago. I should have replaced both at the time.

The ballast has only been installed a few days. It wasn't clear that the plugs fit 32 watt and 40 watt lamps. The were no installation instructions. I had to call the company to learn that the plugs were interchangeable. Previous ballast had dedicated wiring and plug for 32 or 40 watt

This is a huge convenient factor when working with AC powered equipment that produces a lot of dust such as table saw, miter saw, routers, etc. The device starts the shop vac automatically when detecting power on the saw, and then turn off automatically when power is off. This takes away having to remember turning on and off the shop

Aside from the auto function working perfectly, the auto/on/off switch is a game changer for me. Can't believe I've been woodworking for 4 years without this.

This has been an amazing purchase for me. Table saw and dust collector bot work well independently but obviously required me to turn both on manually. Certainly not a difficult chore but I frequently found myself hooking up the dust collection tube to the saw only to later turn on the saw—forgetting to turn on the vacuum first. Or,

My house had a 32" in diameter light fixture and those are hard to find and expensive so I wanted to exhaust every avenue before buying a new fixture.
