My house on fire????
Okay so I left yesterday feelin good as I was going to pick up some new g-13 clones....
First off let me say.... In the morning when I woke and turned on my light, everything was A-okay
so I get home, my whole, I mean the whole fucking house smells like something is burning!!!! like something very hot that is rested against something wood, as if some wood was being branded by red-hot steel..
I start to panick b-cuz my new clones are already at my buddys house and I feel like I have to call the fire dept. like ASAP...
so I freak out and tear the whole grow room down, I have a storage shed in the back yard so thats where it will all go...
3 big-ass lights, 3 big-ass ballasters, tons of mylar, magazines, books, twelve 5 gal buckets, tomatoe cages, hooks, chains, cfl's, fluoros, I could keep going..... oh yeah this is at like 2 a.m. also..... w/ the niighbors dog bein loud as fuck too....
then, I had to take out a bunch-o-shit from my room and throw it in the grow room so it doesnt look obvious..... t.v. clothes book stands..... etc etc
this is so fucked up!!!! I have no idea what this smell is from, I didnt get anything but like 2 hrs of sleep because of this shit!!! I am so paranoid my fucking house is gonna burn down!!!
I woke up this morning and the smell is still here!!! Its has diminished from the rest of the house and is now only in the grow room!!!!! and theres nothing even plugged in!!!
I still have the well trained whore in there and dont know what to do w/ her.... I have to get ahold of a friend and have them put her in a box and get her out of there...... then I can call someone to come by..... but I dont know if I should yet,
thats why Im posting this, I hope someone MIGHT have some type of an answer.....
Do lights go bad??? well I know they do but...... Do they ever give off any type of smell???? I know this sounds so fucking lame but for real, this is some serious shit!!! I might have to call the fire dept. if the electrician says to...... if I have to do that then they are gonna bug the fuck out of me if they see somethin out of the ordinary......
does anyone have any type of idea of what this could be from????
has anyone ever had this same issue???
jesus christ, my work uniform even has this smell stuck to it!!!!!
Im so fuckin noid right now, someone plz have an answer....... Im struck
Chill. Maybe one of your ballasts has smoked out. If it was left on these can create the type of smell you are describing.
Follow the source of the smell, find it's strongest point. May be even from one of your sockets. Check all wiring.
man, I have no idesa on how to check the wiring.....
the smell isnt coming from the ballast, I searched, smelled, and checked every single appliance in my house..... nothing
would a a light still run w/ a burnt out ballast??
If and electrician comes to check the wiring, will he know anout some type of big ass lights being plugged in??
Im still freakin, nothins gonna stop me until I get this figured out
Hopefully it is something simple as a ballast.
I'd be very cautious and look everywhere, especially the sockets, your outlets(if you were using any?) and where ever you tied in at.
Good luck man, hope there's no damage and that it's all in your head. I sometimes think I'm smelling something burning, maybeit's the ganja lol
smart man, I wouldn't either.

i will pray everything is okay with this situation. good luck, remember you are doing god's work!
Check all appliances, everything. You're life's not in immediate danger so do the work yourself. TV, lightbulbs, washing machine. if it plugs in, check it.
this shit is fucked up, My dad is 70 yrs old and now I gotta have him look over while Im here at work, hes cool w/ trees so he isnt worried about that, were just worried that somethin is hot in between the walls, which scares the fuckin piss out of me right now......
what confuses me most is that the smell was there ALL DAY yesterday and ALL NIGHT till this morning.......and nothing catching fire
If it were one of the ballasts, would that smell linger like that 4 over 12 hrs?????
i dont get it you smell something burning but nothings burning,was there any smoke? i think your just getting over paranoid.
