troubles with flourescent fixture not working
Hi all, I am new to this site, and appreciate all the help. My mom has a little 2 ft flourescent fixture over her sink that stopped working. We replaced the starters and could sometimes see a little blue light on the end of them when jiggling them so I assumed the switch had power. We took the fixture down and hard wired it to an extension cord and the thing lit up right away. I have put an ohm meter to the old black and white wires coming out of the ceiling from the switch and at 50 volt setting with the switch on, the needle jumped all the way to the right. Switch off, no reading. I'm not sure what to do now, very frustrating. The green wire from the fixture was not connected and I read that that was ok, it worked like that before.
Thanks so much.
