Prob with my lights

i set up a 10gal this past saturday as a heavily planted dwarf puffer species tank. the lighting was upgraded to the AHS 2x13, but after the lights are on for a while (a couple hourse), the right light goes out. the left light has never gone out. is this a heat problem? the canopy feels warm, but not hot enough to where the light would shut off assuming it has a thermal breaker... tia

I would say it is a wiring or ballast problem. Heat is not an issue.
