High Pressure Sodium light cuts off

150 watt light failed to come on. Replaced photo cell and bulb. Light now comes of for a few hours and cuts off.  Tripping breaker turns light back on. Light repeats cycle.  Any suggestions?

Hi Howard. How old is the ballast and ballast components? My suggestion would be to buy a ballast kit, then you'll have an entirely new fixture. Let me know if you have further questions.

Thanks.  Your company is shipping a new ballast kit.  Thanks for your help


Hi Kyle.  The new ballast kit arrived on time.  However, between ordering and receiving the shipment, the light started working.  As of today, the light continues to operate properly.  I have not installed the new ballast, but I will keep the kit.  With my luck, as soon as I return the kit, the light will stop working.  The light is over 10 years old, and it's just a matter of time before it becomes a problem.

Thanks for your follow-up.
