My concern is more with the unterminated ground wire from the fixture, via the cord. Scenario: Some unwary soul goes to troubleshoot this fixture (maybe take a voltage test). If there was a winding to core short in the ballast (which would have gone on undetected indefinitely without a ground connection)...well, then
What would be the end result???

Electure: Bitten once, know what you mean. I make it a "habit" to always carry a non-contact voltage detector. I check the fixture housings before I touch them. This is a common problem. "The green wire don't do anything" mentality. 277 volt jolts are not a good thing. John
