Ballast

Folks;
I have two light fixtures with u tube flouresant lights. The fixtures are both humming very loud when they have ben on for awhile. I've been told it's the
ballast making the noise. My question if this is true is it cheaper to replace the ballast or to buy new fixtures? Also is this something I can handle
myself? I have done minor electrical repairs before with this forums help.
Thank you in advance.

Look at the specifications on the old ballast. Write them on a piece of paper. Find a ballast with the same specifications and get the price. Compare this price to the cost of a new fixture and make your decision. Good luck.
