Hello from Toronto, Ontario, Canada

I have a defective 2 foot under cabinet T12 lamp in which the ballast is buzzing like crazy. The defective ballast is shown in the first photo.

I also have an unused 3 foot under cabinet T12 lamp which is fine. Can I switch the working ballast from the 3 foot lamp into the 2 footer lamp with no issues? The ballast from the 3 footer is shown in the second photo.

To confirm, I want to use the working ballast in the second picture, as a replacement for the defective ballast in the fist picture.

Having said all that it appears the pictures are UPSIDE down in my post, although the originals are not. It also seems they are being highly compressed so you can't read the details...GAH! What do you need to know to determine if these are interchangeable?

Thank you very much.
