Nope, the door on the model 25 can't fall off, unless the hinge keeper is disengaged and if it was the door would of fallen off as soon as it opened. Better report this though, if you haven't already.

Actually the doors CAN fall off, I know of three Model 25's with doors COMPLETELY off in Denver. It will just take a while. The latch isn't perfect and after enough vibration it CAN fall off.

They will fall off overtime. It doesn't have to be right when the door is opened. The doors on the ones here seem to latch well, but some will come unlatched and if it's windy enough, they'll come unhinged....

Unfortunately, this fixture has been replaced. There is a new M400R3 400w HPS fixture in its place.

What the heck? Why would they of done that? Unless the latch was broken or the ballast just died.

Why did they do that for. and don't even get started about people who replace 400w MV with 400w HPS.

Yeah it seemed like all they had to do was close the door. Unless the door wouldn't close or something. Or maybe they discovered another issue with the light.

Maybe the ballast was bad.

That was already mentioned, it is a likely cause, that or the latch was broken.

I've seen fixtures that are still in service without the door in my area.

Same here. Most of the ones without doors are M250's. When I report them, the entire fixture is usually replaced. BTW I drove past the replacement HPS fixture tonight - it is INSANELY bright...

I've seen them tape up fixtures before too, here's some examples.
