        • Thanks for the info, Gary. I find this confusing. What heat did the heat sensor sense? Or was it malfunctioning?

    • Thanks, Kevin. So neither smoke nor fire but just a stench? I can remember having to change out ballasts in a large bank of florescent lights. They sometimes seemed to ooze a tar-like substance that really stank.
