hi,had a prob with my set up today,turned the bulb(heat) on and it blew and took the stat with it.changed the fuse in the plug wasnt that,couldn't change the other fuse as it had these stupid triangle screw heads.took back to pet store they gave me new,i hope it doesnt happen again in the morning or do you think it was a one off.all my plugs are surge protected,me and the storeperson both agreed that the plug part for the appliance was weird how it had triangle screw heads and he couldnt understand why.i'm running mine with an r80 100w spot and let it dim down to get my basking temps.so not sure if it was a one off or i have something set up wrong,will see in the morning haha.thanks.

If both the stat and bulb went then it sounds like a bum stat. I've had a number of bulbs running through stats blow over the years and never had one take out the stat as well. Checked the rest of your wiring? Couldn't be the timer (if you're using one) could it?
