So i dont know if you guys remember but i bought a Nova extreme from cjldad a while back for my 75g. Great seller everything went smoothly. But i cam home to day from dinner and it smells like my rooms on fire. As i am scrambling to find out whats on fire i realize its my nova extreme. So i am all
and i am ticked. So i unplug it right away and flip it over to see the problem. 1 of the light bulbs have melted out of the sockets and looked to catch on fire. I was all
and cursing at the sky. I instuntly took pics and sent the following email into nova extreme.
"About 8 months ago i purchased a Nova extreme 2 bulb system from someone on a forum sight. It was unopen and they bought it and never used it. When i bought it from them it had a loose socket at the end of 1 of the lights. I pushed it in and everything has been working fine since. I cam home tonight and it had melted through the plastic socket at the end of the bulb and almost caused a electrical fire. It was obviously from the way ti was built and i was wondering if you guys could do something about it? The light has worked wonders on my plants and is a wonderful light but it nearly set my house on fire. So is there anything you can do about it?
Below is a link to a picture of the damage and there is also a attachment.

Now i did see a problem when i bought it that the socket was loose but it just popped back in no biggy. Has not givin me ANY problems since, not 1. Not even then, turned on just fine. No wires sticking out, just the plastic piece. So now i am sitting here waiting for a reply. So FREAKIN MAD as my house could have been burnt down while i wasent home. So now i have no light. SO ANGRY.
Anyone have a light for sale?
BTW Pic of damage,
