I do have a single strip Coralife fixture. It has no fan, and has not cause me any grief, yet! I also have a double bulb Coralife fixture. It also has no fans. It hasn't given me a problem yet either.

does it have any vents? i'm thinking it's not a heating issue, but the ballast was just broken that's all.

man hubba you have been having bad luck with equiptment lately. My coralife 2x65 24" has 4 fans on top of it. I wonder why the longer ones dont have one.

Pretty sure they dont put fans in the longer ones because the bulbs arent side by side as in the 24". Not as much heat put out by the bulbs when placed end to end in a 48" fixture.

Thank you, Verminaard, that's what I was trying to explain to people......

The single linear coralife strips do not have fans. The double linear strips have fans. So the 48" strip that includes fans is the 260W not 130W.

Here is there website.

Hi guys, I just received my ballast and I hooked up the new ballast to the hook. it works now!!! let there be light! haha. it's great. I love coralife. You just send them a receipt, tell them what's wrong, and they take care of you. Guys, get a coralife hehe, if you have any problems, they'll take care of you.
