My kitchen has three pairs of recessed flourescent lighting tubes in the
ceiling and two switches that operate it. I have not taken out the ladder
and removed the cover to see what's inside yet.
For the past several weeks the lights are taking longer to come on. The
first pair comes on then the other ones slowly catch up and come on. It is
taking longer for all of them to come on now. I suppose the ballast is
going bad. I don't know if this kind of arrangement would have more than
one ballast though (is this possible?). Before I make a big mess in the
kitchen can anyone enlighten me what to look for in the fixture when I get
up there? I do have a multimeter and have done some basic electrical wiring
(fans, outlets, switches) before.
