I guess my hood is broken. I just bought a new bulb a few weeks ago, but just now the light won't turn on. If I stand there and click it like 10 times it turns on. Is there a way to buy a new starter thing, or am I going to have to get a new hood? it's just a 10 gallin flourescent, so it won't be that expensive.

When you normaly turn on the light do you have to hold in the switch for a second or 2?

Another question: Is there a small round cylinder ( starter )? A starter is about the size of a roll of nickels only not as long. If yes, then you can replace that at your local hardware store.

starter

They are a lot cheaper at Lowe's and Home Depot than the LFS. Make sure you get the right size for your bulb, each starter will cover several sizes of bulbs, but you want the right one.
