Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. My name is XXXXX XXXXX would be glad to assist.
Do you have a ballast model number of the one your wanting to install?
Is this a 120 volt application?
Please provide Model number of your ballast.
The new ballast is a Philips Advance Model ICN2P60SC. Yes, this is a 120 volt application.
Thanks for model.
Ok, should be 2 blues and one red on one end. A white and black on the other. The power is white and black. Take one blue and connect to one lamp on one end only. Take the other blue and connect to the 2nd lamp on one end only. Take the red wire and connect to both lamps on the opposite end of the blues.
Understand the blue wire hook up. Viewing the other end of the fixture, The black and white power wires are there, but, I cannot see a way to hook the red wire to both lamps at the other end.
The old ballast probably had the black to one lamp and white to one lamp, is this correct? If so that was an old magnetic type. You now have an electronic type. Thats normal. You have to remove the ends from the fixture and rewire them properly or it will not work.
The black and white only go to the ballast, NO connection to the lamps.
Correct. What does the rewire look like?
Okay. The black and white power lines go directly to the ballast. Then I can connect the previous power end lamps with a wire and connect the red. Correct?
One blue and red on the other end. each lmap shares the red
lamp , sorry
That was the old ballast
To confirm - The 2 blue wires go the the previous red and blue end. The black and white power wires go the ballast. The previous power end has both lamps hooked together with the red tied in. Do I have it correct?
Yes, the link I posted shows it all also.
