Lighting Tip

Diagnosing the Cause of Dim Lights/Low Light Output

We recommend following the steps below when attempting to diagnose the cause of dim lights/low light output:

  1. Replace the lamp with another brand to see if you get the same results. If you get the same results, proceed to the next step.
  2. Check voltage supply to see if there is low voltage.
  3. If on multi-tap ballast, verify if the electrical connection is on the proper voltage tap.
  4. Check for loose electrical connection on the capacitors. Verify capacitor is wired properly within the circuit.
  5. If your low light output problem persists, the cause is probably a defective or incorrect capacitor. Replace your capacitor.
