Fluorescent Light Replacement Parts – Replacing Those Old Fixtures and Bulbs

Fluorescent bulbs and fixtures are widely used due to their durability and low maintenance requirements; however, occasionally repairs and replacements are required. You’ll know when it’s time when your light begins to flicker, doesn’t come on, won’t hold a bulb, or when the light covers get cracked. Luckily, fluorescent light replacement parts aren’t difficult to come by. Most of them can be found in hardware stores, our better yet – right here, at www.diffuserspecialist.com.

If your fixture won’t light up, it’s possible that it may not be receiving power. The first thing to do is to check the breaker box and see if that is the problem. Although fluorescent bulbs are made to last years, if one starts flickering, it’s time to replace it. Make sure to get the same bulb size and wattage.

Sometimes, it’s not bulbs at all, but cracked sockets that don’t allow a complete electrical circuit. This caused by bumps by other objects or stress put on them by replacing bulbs. It is always important to shut of the power to the light either by unplugging it or turning it off at the breaker. You will need to open up the fixture to gain access to the suspected broken socket.

Another common problem with ceiling light covers is broken ballast. The ballast boosts the incoming voltage to start the fluorescent tube and then regulates the current to keep the light on. Since ballast replacements can cost almost as much as a new fixture, buying a completely new one is probably a better investment.
