We have a foul odor associated with corrosion on our ceiling light fixtures. The fixtures are relatively new (1 1/2 years old) in a former model home. The corrosion/rust is worse on the lights that get the most use and there appears to be some heat damage on the ceiling above one of the fixtures. Any suggestions as to the cause?

What wattage bulbs are you using? What is maximum wattage on the sticker on the fixture? Sounds like a heat problem to me. Must also be a moisture problem if they are rusting. Perhaps there is mice living in the fixture?
