Icecap Ballest

Anyone ever have one go bad??? I think my 660 has crapped out .
Something blew the breaker yesterday while we were at work and I was not 100% sure what it was. This morning it blew again.. This time the wife says she heard a POP, POP then the tank went dead.
It seems that when the lights went to come on that is when it happended. So I just took the bulbs out and clean them up good and when I plugged the ballest in nothing.... I unplugged and plugged in again and it POPed, so I unplugged quick before the breaker went. Any ideas out there???
Looks like I maybe ballest shopping tomorrow $$$$$ :censor:

IceCaps do sometimes go bad.. BUT IceCap fixes them for cheap.. like 20-25 bucks.. Contact them and try to get it fixed.. MUCH cheaper then a replacement for it.

I have heard nothing but good things about IceCaps customer service. Try them first as Greenmaji said. In the mean time I feel for you, been there .

Ya, They are great and fixed it the day they got it. I got it back already and will be hooking it back up soon... My friend let me use his extra one so I got lights..
Its $65 for the repairs and shipping costs... Alot cheaper then a new unit.

thanks for the info.
