    google IG13-20EL

    Found several.


    0704Y6 is probably a date code.

    you can also just go to your local hardware store. Sometimes its cheaper just to buy a new light however.

    there is no starter. I already took it apart, one light works, one light didn't . I switched the bulbs, and the bulbs are fine. could be the ends though, I can pick those up at lowes.

    Could be bad sockets or connections , you could try reseating all the wires into the sockets.

    But..I've had this happen before and it's probably a bad ballast. For $13 it's not a bad deal...just replace it and press on
