      Out of six fixtures, two tubes in a fixture, I have to remove four T8 tubes off the fixture because of disturbing flickering. Also, tubes are quite hot when I removed.

            A:

            That would depend on the actual wattage and existing lumens of the T12 lamps that you are replacing. Can you provide more information? Please contact Customer Service at 888-455-2800 for assitance.
