Exclamation URGENT: Help regarding ceramic heater

hi, i need some urgent help please.

So today i set up my new tank for my brand new baby uromastyx. There is a problem though; the ceramic heating bulb is heating up.

The bulb is running through the correct habistat day/night pulse thermostat which is working (tested with lightbulb once problem arose).

I have checked the conductivity of the bulb and there is definately a current running through it.

All the components appear to be in working order, and i am positive everything has been set up correctly, but the bulb is not even getting warm, even though the thermostat's light is on (not flashing, fully on).

I have never used a thermostat or ceramic bulb before and have become more than a little frustrated by this problem, and as the ceramic heating bulb is the only heat source in the tank, i am worried about not being able to sort out the problem until tomorrow lunch time when the shop opens...

suggesting, advice, solutions and waves of magic wands all required...

thanks

ben
