    I have a Stern machine with one 24 inch 18 watt fluorescent bulb behind the back glass. It went out and any new bulb just flickers once when you turn on the machine then nothing. If you had to guess, do you think the problem is in the light bracket connections on either side, a fuse, or the power supply on the board. Thanks so much.

    Do you have any other sterns to swap parts from?

    Could be the ballast. This one should work for Sam versions.

    It's hard to give specific help without more details.

    Did you also replace the starter?

    I did not replace starter yet. Should I replace both? Also, am I going to get electrocuted doing this? Thanks.
