    My Thomas Duplex hums...loudly.

    Do they all do this? Is it a symptom of a problem?

    Mine hummed...then light flickered. I was informed it is probably a bad bulb..I haven't replaced yet to confirm though.

    I used to work in "pro" labs, and have been around any number of these things. They all hum, but some more than others. The one I have now hums, but not enough that I can't drown it out with the stereo. Dean

    a loud humm means the ballast in the starter is going. It can be replaced. A low level hum is just the voltage going through the tube.
