photocell unit getting hot Answered

I installed a small photocell on my porch light. I went to check on it this morning and found that the housing unit of the photocell was hot. The wiring is spot on. Any idea why it would get so hot?

No idea without any information on the wiring, type of module and so on.
You might know what's inside, but last time I checked noone here was clairvoyant enough to answer your question.
