I have a Bunn Ultra 2 machine it was working fine last week I left it running and when I went and looked at it yesterday it had shut off and would not start up. I unplugged it from the outlet and it...

was it hot? the compressor may be overheated and went into shutdown until it cools. it's safety feature if the fan stops or if the airflow is blocked by too much dust. clean the filter, check the fan, and try again. if it's not hot, it's the transformer that powers the main circuit board.

BH 3950 plug overheating

this happens when you have run a heater for a long time on an outlet that is either not giving the heater enough amperage or to much amperage try it in a different room if the problem persists try a different heater.

Electric plug gets hot when pluged in. Is this dangerous to replace plug. i have two one is alright.

Shirley, more than likely, the heater cord's plug is not the problem. Something inside the heater is over heating and causing the plug to over heat. Since it's a molded plug, I don't suspect the cord has been damaged inside the plug, unless someone unplugged it, by pulling on the cord, rather than pulling the plug out. So, just replacing the plug is not a safe option at this time. A small appliance repair shop, can test the heater and tell you what is wrong and if it's worth repairing.

Hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa..

I received the Patton Electric Heater model number PUH682 for a Christmas gift. It worked fine for about one week then just about 3 days ago, when I went to unplug it, the plug and cord were just red...

I saw your post and I encourage you to report your problem to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. I called them to report the problem. The number to the company (Patton) is 763 444 8567. The number to The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is 1-800-638-2772. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission will take your report and if you know others that have this product and they have experienced the same thing encourage them to call and report it. The heater I had melted unto a ultility extention cord and was smoldering. It could have cause serious injury or damages to me and my family.

If this product could have injured you as well. The are a public hazard and need to be recalled.

Cord gets hot where you plug into outlet hot meaning warm to the touch but can hold your hand around cord and is comfortable.Is this dangerous? Could this start a fire?

Not dangerous at all. All heaters create some warmth around where the plug enters the outlet. WARM, not hot, if it's HOT too the touch, then it's a problem. Never use extension cords, and never splice the cord... also don't run the wire under rugs etc... you'll be fine.

What kind of extension cord to use?

You should use a cord with the ground wire in it. If you're running a heater and the wire is getting hot, it's not whether it should be an indoor or outdoor cord it's the wire size that's the problem.
If you wire is getting hot you need a larger wire size.
Depending on the amps of the heater rule of thumb
15 amps a minimum of 14 gauge with ground
20 amps a minimum of 12 gauge with ground
30 amps a minmum of 10 gauge with ground
If you are using a cord over 15 to 20 feet then you may want to go to a larger wire size.
You will know if the wire size is correct if you let the heater run for a while 20 to 30 minutes and then feel the wire it should just barely feel warm it shouldn't get real warm or hot.
