I recently installed two illuminated 3-ways on a single floresent fixture and only one of three ways seems to light up. Does anyone know why?

"I recently installed two illuminated 3-ways on a single floresent fixture and only one of three ways seems to light up."

That's funny because we are from the same town. I recently got a phone call from a lady whose electrician installed a illuminated switch on a single floresent fixture and it wound not light up.

It was a few weeks ago but was it in the kitchem?

My over the phone guess was the fixture had an electronic ballest that would not work with the bulb in the switch. And because it was a 3 way it limited other approaches to the problem.

Tom,
It was not in the kitchen. It was client of mine who lives in Deerfield. My guess was that the ballast wasn't the right kind of load to illuminat the switch.

You guys can have the Deerfield work. I went to St. Charles once. I just got a call from Palatine that I might do. I just learned how to make money within 15 miles. It might take ten more years to learn how to make money 30 miles away.

I hope you don't write floresent on an invoice.

No, I try to sell just cans and fans to keep the paper work easy.
