I hope you get some kind of compensation from them. Could have been a real disaster.

Good luck with customer service. After two years I doubt they'll do anything, if you can get them to even respond.
Did that ballast have UL seal? You may want to check on their website.

Glad to hear you caught it before there was any real damage.

Did you have that plugged into a power strip? If so, did it's circuit trip or was it still getting juice?

I did have it plugged into a pwerstrip and the circuit did not trip...the smoke detectors on the lower level did not go off either...I have to buy a new light and new smoke detectors.

GOOD LORD glad every one is ok ... This is a real hazard of our hobby ...Please every one If your smoke detectors are more than 5 years old they should be replaced since most of us do not dust them or take them down and blow them out with air(even tho testing them shows that they work the real test is smoke/heat ect and dust can hamper that and that is not the time to check them ) ..... Most dont even change the batteries twice a year let alone once a year .Every smoke detector should be tested weekly or at very least 1 time a month . On a side note we nearly had a huge disaster when I was changing the bulbs on our tank.... I left them plugged in and also turned on I did not get the bulb seated in the power harness properly/tight when they arced and caught fire !! The other thing I did was have it laying on a recliner to change that sucked and it stunk .....Our smoke detectors did activate ... Now is the time to check those and your CO detectors with winter just around the corner and heaters comming on and windows being shut ....


Aquatrader= bad place they do not have good customer support once they have your money best bet would be to gut the fixture and retro new parts in
