Basic Wiring Information
The white wire is the neutral wire and goes to the white wire coming
from the wall.
The black wire is the hot wire and will go through your switch. This
means that the black wire from the wall will go to one side of your switch and
a wire from the other side of the switch goes to the black wire on the ballast. The switch interrupts the power supplied to
Our ballast has two red and two yellow wires coming out of the ballast.
These four wires go to the socket directly. The bulb has two filaments
and the two red wires go to one filament and the two yellow wires go to
the other filament. Lay your FC40W bulb on a table in front of you
the pins facing toward you. The circular lamp should be flat on the surface. There is a filament on the right and a
filament on the left. You can wire to the relative positions in the
socket a red wire to the upper left, a red wire to the lower left, a
yellow wire to the upper right and the other yellow wire to the lower
right. The red wires go to the filament on the left and the yellow go
to the filament on the right. It does not matter which side is red and
which side is yellow but you cannot cross the wires. A red and a yellow
will not light up a filament.
You can order the following replacement socket here.
