heater problem ?

My 200 watt heater may be going on the blink? It came in a marineland starter kit bought in July of 2011. Apon visual inspection when on, the light flickers every few seconds with a blue spark like light in the glass tube. On, off, on, off ,spark ,on ,off, its driving me crazy. My other heaters once on stay on until desired temperature is reached then turn off. There is no problem with fluctuating temperatures it's just makes me a little nervious and I never seen this before. If this in fact is a problem can this be a warrinty issue due to the fact it has only been used for a few months?

Warranty, sounds like a short inside the controller, you might see if marineland will do an advanced RMA
