I've used my TurboTwist UVS on and off for only 4 months and it stop working. I suspect that the light bulb has blown. Please take a look at the picture below:



The metal plate does not attach to the both sides. Does it mean the light bulb has blown?

thanks!

When my 3x was purchased it came with a defective bulb, first one lasted no more than 30 sec. Went through swapping ballast and such with the mfg come to find the bulb was toast, was hard to tell the filament was broken on the poles in my case... Whoever made them for coalife a few years back did them no favors. In place if it use a tetra the last couple of times and notice at least it's a re branded Phillips bulb. Works well and lasts a long time.

Suggestion. Let it cool down before moving it.
