I think that is an explosion resistant starter. Not sure why the FS-2 starter is not working for you. It may be time to replace the old fixture with a more efficient, longer lasting and mercury-free LED fixture. They even make LED tubes that can pop right into the old fluorescent fixture. the small fixtures, like the 15 to 22 watt can be found at any hardware store or department in the big box store. It will probably use only 8 to 12 watts for the same light.
