Overheating or not?

I bought one of these in Sainsburys on Monday - the outer casing gets so hot that it would burn anyone who touched it after boiling. Phoned you up and you said it shouldn't so I took it back and got another. However the second one gets just as hot - is this normal? I havn't had a metal kettle before (plastic) so havn't come across this problem before.

    I understand it gets hot but the outside is as hot as the water inside. It has a cream coating (the kettle), surely this should dissipate some of the heat somewhat? Just thought it bordering on the dangerous and wondered how it could pass the safety regulations thats all. Thanks for the speedy response by the way.

    thanks for the reply. However reading your comments I wish I hadn't taken the first one back now as the blue light up bit looks as if it had an extra bulb in it in the middle than the one I have now. It was blue all over - the second one is blue at the top and bottom. Are there 3 bulbs in it or not? Thanks.

I just bought a Dragon Touch X80 and it keeps getting hot and overheating and somtime lags. Is there anything i can to make it stop doing these thing? Again its brand new.

That's a warranty problem. Back up all of your personal information on it and take it back to the dealer for replacement ASAP. Overheating may be a safety issue; even if it doesn't burn your fingers there is a risk of battery fire or explosion.

My nextbook tablet battery gets so hot it burned the back cover very hot to the touch how do i fix this

Make sure that you are using the correct charger and if you are, your battery needs to be replaced. Overheating while charging or heavy use is a sign that it is near the end of the useful life.

Microwave stopped working and was hot inside.

At just 13 months old I would be inclined to get in touch with Maytag. If you make enough fuss they will repair it under warranty. but just check that the air intake and exhaust are clear of debris first.

Hope this helps

The inside glass of my oven door broke when I used the "self cleaning" last night. is it safe to use the oven in this condition?

No because the outside glass is not designed to take all that heat from the oven. Also the dual glass setup allows the outside glass to not get super hot to the touch(insulated) and so without the inner glass the outer will get extremely hot. Especially with a long cooking when you bake a turkey. So the outer glass could break or someone like a child could get burned if they touch the glass. I suggest you do not use it.

Nintendo ds touch screen problems....

Well theres no reset button and it is probably broken. SInce you replaced the outer casing the warrenty probably wont be in effect. What i would do is take it into future shop or where ever you bought it and ask for there advice or you colud phone an nintendo help line if there is one.

Hot where it shouldn't be

I just bought a Whirlpool RF265LXTB electric range and have the exact same problem. The one we bought was the floor model, so we thought maybe it was just defective, so we returned it, went to a different store and bought the same model that was new in the box. Brought it home and it is doing the exact same thing.

Talked to Whirlpool and they say it will get warm on the front, but this thing gets HOT! They said they would send out an repairman, but after two different units, I can't see anything a repairman will be able to do to fix it. I wouldn't worry about it too much, but I do have a 3-year-old at home and don't want him to get burned. I think I am going to return it and try a different brand.
