  • Fluresent Light Question

    I have a floresent light assembly that will not come on unless I tap on the housing. Do I need to replace the bulbs?

    More likely the sockets. The contacts can get corroded.

      some times taking the bulb and rotating and moving it around so the pins rub on the contacts. helps,

        I have a couple of basement shop florescents that have proven to be a problem at least once a year. I finally pulled both of the fixtures down and cleaned the the spring-like clips within the sockets, using a cotton-tip and some metal cleaner. I then put anti-Ox (that black-paste that you can buy in most electrical departments). It's been two years and I haven't had any further problems.

        I hope this helps,
