These heaters all have safety devises in them some for tip over and all for over heating. Your problem sounds as if it has a bad over heating sensor. These will have two wires one in one out, it is usually a positive wire. When they sense that the heater is to hot it shuts it down upon cooling it allows the heater to turn back on. The tip switch does the same if upright it turns on if tipped it turns it off. They are mechanical and thermal switches and they do go bad. These can be jumped out to trouble shoot the problem but I would not run it with out these safety devices in it.

Wires are rated to handle a certain amount of amps. Your dryer cord is bigger than your coffee maker cord because your dryer pulls more amps. What is going on with your heater is your heater is drawing more amps than the wire can handle. Therefore the wire is getting hot, melting the insulation. Hopefully it shorts out before it catches on fire!!! BOTH BAD SCENERIOS!!! It is possible your machine is just excessively dirty, therefore working extremely hard, drawing high amps. If you are able to give a good cleaning, do so. Let dry and turn heater on DURING A TIME WHEN YOU CAN MONITOR IT, NOT OVERNIGHT. See if it has made a significant improvement. If not, it's time for a new heater!! Best Wishes!!

I doubt that they have any Teflon in them, and it would certainly have burned off by now if it did.
