Purchased this ballast to replace a failed GE unit on a floor standing torchiere lamp. The Sunpark ballast works great. I think it has a slightly wider dimming range than the original. I would have rated it 5 stars except for two things: It comes with a threaded switch to control the dimming. The switch did not include a nut. The nut was smaller than the original one on the lamp. Finding the correct nut was difficult. I eventually found a switch at Radio Shack that used the same nut. The ballast also did not come with a wiring diagram. I made an educated guess on the wiring from other ballasts and it worked first try.

I also bought this ballast to replace the FEH550/DV/120 ballast in my GE Tourchier light. DON"T BUY IT unless you are crafty and willing to guess at wiring and then go to the hardware store and scrounge to find a nut to fit the dimmer switch. The package did not include a wiring diagram and the color of the wires is very different. You have to look at the circuit board with a magnifying glass in order to guess which wire goes to which wire. Frankly it's cheaper to just purchase a new lamp and a whole lot less hassle. Once installed it does work to turn on the light and does an OK job of dimming the flouescent bulb.

Wires from the dimmer and the ballast are all different colors and no wiring diagram. I emailed Sunpark for assistance and have heard nothing and their phone number is busy. I have seen this very item on other retailers websites and they do have wiring diagrams but, you guessed it, the colors don't match my product.

The way this item is described/listed makes it hard to find. While a direct replacement it does lack the 7mm nut needed for the switch so I shimmed it in place. Nice to have the lamp back.

Perfect replacement for original Magnetek ballast that failed. New switch had the necessary nut to secure it to the lamp which was unexpected based on previous reviews. Only problem was that the switch is a mirror image of the one it replaced which required some creative thinking to get it installed in the limited space inside the lamp tube. No instructions were included but the switch wires are marked to indicate polarity and function. I needed an additional nut on the threaded nipple on the bottom of the ballast to get the correct spacing so it would match up properly with the threaded coupling on the bottom of the lamp shade.

It worked! I had to revise the sequence of the lamp sections or rewire the switch. I chose to swap out the center sections. The switch is mounted lower than it was before, but it's easier to reach from a seated position! Other than that it works just as advertised. This is not a REALLY easy repair, but should NOT be too difficult for someone with basic tool skills. HINT: Take pictures of it as you take it apart. The sequence of spacers and washers is critical when putting it back together! Smart Phone cameras work really well for this!

Works well and agree with other reviewers that don't buy this if you are not comfortable with making modifications or be creative to install dimmer switch. Switch does not come with a nut to hold this dimmer in place. Local hardware stores, electric and light stores, Radio Shack etc. none of them had nut that fits this switch. I had to insert support at the back of the switch to keep it in place.

What can I say, it replaced the old ballast exactly (with one small exception) and saved me from buying another new lamp! Shipped promptly and arrived early! The one exception was that the dimmer control mounting was smaller than the original. I'll see if I can find a new nut, but since the installed unit doesn't seem to want to turn, the control works fine using the old knob.
