Another stuck starter that I've pulled from the fixture near the copying room of the Storage of Carmel hospital

The heat from the glow bottle caused the nylon of the capacitor in that area to melt.
The starter stuck instantly after the lamp went EOL.
It is very hard to disassemble these starter, when they are stuck (I use scissors to do this).

The cap doesn't seem melted. The six melted dots are only there to attach the plastic film to the capacitor

Glow bottle contacts do occasionally get welded so it might be the case on this one.

I got an interesting thing to share. I got osram fs2 starters at blowes a while ago. One world make some popping noises when it started and the starter would glow while the lamp was in operation. I pulled the case and realized that the cap had a partial short or something and it'd shoot sparks from the top.
I didn't want to take chances, since another starter began doing that so I trashed the batch and used some NOS Bryant fs2na.

I currently use Osram ST151 long life from eBay on 120V circuits and they seem to work quite well. Only a couple got stuck and it was from EOL lamps.

If this has welded for no reason the best method is to bang the starter against the wall, most of the time the contacts become unstuck and will work again . Try banging it on wall Dor123 and fit it in your bug zapper see what it does, it should work.
