eclipse overheating!!!

I happened to touch the plug coming from my eclipse III lighting unit and burned myself. As I unplugged it I noticed that the square unit got so hot that it had actually become disfigured in some places. Has anyone else had this same problem? Now I am afraid to plug my lights in while I am not home. Usually I have them set on a timer.

call Marineland. they are great at customer service and will send yo uanother one. If you want standard shipping it will be free. if you want overnight shipping you pay $10 or so for that. it is worth it.

they don't want a fire anymore than you do. the liability would be huge.
