Lightbulb Fluorescent Fixture Problem


I have just registered so this is my first Post.

In the kitchen of my condo I have 4 recessed fluorescent fixtures.
One of the the fixtures has been giving me a problem in that I have to keep replacing the tubes often. I can put in two new tubes and if they last a week I am doing good. Why does this one fixture keep blowing tubes? And more importantly how can I fix this. I have lived here a year, and have not replaced any of the other lights.

What is the Moved: in front of the suject of my message?

Thank you

You may just have a bad ballast.

Probably a bad ballast, also, check the sockets your flourescent lights fit into to see that they are in good shape, another possibility is that they are not making good connections.
