I have a question since this is the only tanning bed post
I have a Wolfe Canopy tanning bed that I bought new about 26+ years ago Has always worked good but now it takes 25+ minutes a side to even start to tan ... Has new bulbs and bulbs light up fine......Why is it not working good? Do balasts wear out and still light bulbs? Where can i buy thinm if thats the problem... I know its old...

Welcome to the forums.

You're always welcome to start a new thread.
Actually it's encouraged as it's dedicated to you and your project.

Typically magnetic ballasts don't wear out with age...... they either work or they don't.
What is the input voltage listed on the ballasts ?
Many tanning beds use special input voltages.
Check your supply voltage too

You can't determine the output of your tubes based on visible light because it's the light you can't see that does the tanning.
