Default Heres a fun one. 630w dual bulb Ceramic Metal Halide Transformer

Hey guys!! Im new here and found you just though lots of google searching.

I found out this is a transformer but I was hoping someone here could give more information. I think its the part thats bad, the fixture is only lighting 1 lamp and youll see from the pictures there is some black on the glue.

Speaking of glue... Any best practices for how to remove it?

I attached your photo to the OP.
It looks to me like a component near the transformer has exploded.
Maybe that resistor but it is not really visible in your picture.

I would also check that green component, it might be a mov that exploded. The transformer is likely ok.
