Replacing Fluorescent Ballast

mike_kaiser_gwAugust 15, 2010

When replacing a fluorescent ballast is one required to run the high voltage wires to the lamp holder or can they be spliced (e.g., stripped, twisted, and secured with the appropriate size wire nut)?

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Securing the nut is just fine. We do it all the time that way when replacing ballasts.
