Jim Coleman light problem

IMG_2325.JPGIMG_2322.JPGIMG_2332.JPG

So my circular fluorescent light on my Jim Coleman vacuum was burnt out and the ballast was broken. So what should I do? Well, what about installing 2 compact fluorescent lights? I thought it was a good idea.  My only problem after I installed the lights was that the lights staying on all the time and when the vacuum is turned on the lights go off, any ideas?

  1. Is there a photocell for the lights? I’ve worked on some Coleman vacs like yours and added photocells to them, but the bulbs will last around 2 years burning continuously. If they’re 26 watts, two bulbs will cost about $40 in electricity a year to run.
