Try a titanium heater. I had the same issue with one of mine.

What kind of heater? I know there's a recall on MarineLand heaters. Saw them all pulled from the racks at LFS's with a memo in it's place.

I have a 200w aqueon, It's ok I liked it b/c it was fully submersible, but titanium makes more sense when your talking about conducting heat as opposed to plastic.
