Older CFL fixture starting troubles
We have a ceiling fixture, about 18 years old, that uses one CFL. Recently, it has become very temperamental, taking at least several minutes (up to 30) to come on when switched on, and in the past two days, is not coming on at all. I doubt it's just the lamp dying, since I don't know if that would have caused the delayed start. Is it worth investigating replacing the starter? Something else? Or at it's age, would it make more sense to just replace it (hate to do that, though; It was NOT a cheap light fixture then!)
It's like the one in the link, but fluorescent. I couldn't find a link for the fl. one.
