  2. Sounds like a ballast problem for sure. Is there a manufacturer phone number you can call and ask general questions about the ballast?
  3. no there is no a number i got it a while ago can i replace the ballast myself (easliy) and where could i get one thanks toke n chiill
  4. any grow shop sells ballasts
  5. Lots of places on the internet to get them, but you don't have time for that it sounds like. Start calling local nurseries and if they don't have them they can probably help you find one local. Google the manufacturer name of the one you have and see what info you can find out. Might be an internal reset switch or something. I have not had my ballast very long so I don't know if there is a fuse or something like that inside that can be replpaced possibly. Sorry I can't be anymore help.
