Replacing The Ballast On A Fluorescent Light Fixture


In this video, I remove and replace a dead ballast from a fluorescent light fixture in my garage. Because the wiring is different from the available ballasts at my local hardware store, I have to do some work. I am not an electrician and a professional electrician would probably have done something else.

Anyone following this video for help will need a new ballast that is of the appropriate type, wire caps (or nuts), some heat-resistant tape, and an electrical wire cutting/stripping tool is priceless.

Don’t forget to turn off the electricity to the fixture before making this repair.
