I remember an old aquarium heater doing exactly that once. It was when it wasn't properly immersed in water. How much water was arond it? Many are meant to only be immersed to a certain level, or must be immersed to a certain level.

when you buy a new one, they say "do not ever operate outside of the water." Maybe this is the reason why.

Hey its happened to me. If your using the kind that isnt fully submerible make sure your water level is up to the line where your water level should be. Or it over heats and busts.
