Finally got around to installing my grill neon. Took along time to do...but that is besides the point.
I got it all wired up, flipped the switch, and they both turn on...but after a split second one of the neon tubes went out...and started smoking. So I say, self....thats not good
So now for my question. Both of the wires coming off of the neon are the same color. So I assume that the polarity doesn't matter (like it does for cathodes). So did I have them backwards....or does it not matter for neon.
My other guess is that when I was separating the two wires, I may have clipped the insulation on both (wires were 20-22 gauge) causing it to short?
Basically what I am getting at, is when I go and get a new bulb, does negative and positive matter...
Thanks for the help.
