Hi,
If there are bare As in the copper is showing wires then it IS dangerous. If it is just the wires twisted then just straighten it out the best possible and you will be okay.If the wires are frayed to the point of the copper showing then you need to have the cord replaced. However, unless this is a fancy iron you will be better off throwing it out and then buying a new one rather then paying the bucks you will need to to have the cord replaced...

hi..
"Iron with aluminum soleplate quickly smoothes out wrinkles"

product overview...
- Combining a simple, classic design with an array of modern conveniences, this powerful iron quickly and easily smoothes out wrinkles. The unit's fabric-select dial and convenient fabric guide make it easy to choose the right amount of heat needed for the job, while its aluminum soleplate creates crisp creases and comes with a pointed tip that works well for getting into pleats, between buttons, and along seams. Other highlights include an "on" indicator light, a thumb-activated steam-surge button, an anti-drip system that prevents water spotting at low temperatures, a pivoting cord, and a stable heel rest. For enhanced safety and peace of mind, the iron will shut off automatically after 30 seconds of inactivity if left on its soleplate or tipped over on its side; if left vertically on its heel rest, it will shut off after 8 minutes.

Defective KitchenAid microwaves causing dangers to lives


That is extremely dangerous, from your decription something went wrong with the keypad control board and possibily one of the door switches malfunctioned and the fact the magnetron was arcing did not trigger the fail safe systems indicates a design flaw in the system. I would demand a brand new microwave with a model that has a great safety record.

I have a Westinghouse microwave WST3501 and need a longer electric cord..any suggestions ?


A person with electrical experience can splice in an added amount of cord, but I would not recommend any more cord than needed, since too long a cord can affect the current and possibly lead to overheating and damage.

And I do NOT recommend permanently running a microwave off an extension cord. That's very dangerous.

How do I add water to the pressa bella dry steam iron


Turn the big yellow top, if it's air tight use a plier and gently turn it. That will the trick.
WARNING!!! Becareful not to over fill the water reservoir by doing so the water boils making it leak. It is extremely dangerously as I steam burned my hand. Other than that u won't have a problem.

I have a steam station Iron, it stopped sending the steam from the base into the iron through the cord .Also it has debris in the base when i empty the water Do you know the problem & can you offer...


This can be checked by you as there is not much of mechanics . Make sure that the steam is generated in good quantity so that the cord gets full pressure, if not clean the base perfectly so that there is good contact -- no debris .. make sure with a air pressure or water jet the connection tube is clean and not damaged at any points, if so the steam will not flow .
Once this is established you will get good steam pressure or else the connection tubing cord needs a change.Also make sure there are no issues in the iron to block off steam.

If the microwave is arcing, or if a cooling or ventilating part is at risk, that can be dangerous.

But of course any time anything is broken or otherwise not functioning properly, it should be fixed as quickly as possibly to prevent it from getting worse.

Their warranty will normally cover in-home service on parts & labor for the first year, and just the magnetron itself for 7-10 years after that.

Specific warranty terms are in your owner's manual.

For repair service on Kenmore appliances, see Sears Service.

My microwave oven has are rust spots;can I paint over them?


Yes, you can paint over the spots and no, it's not dangerous. I'd let the paint thoroughly dry before using the oven -- it could otherwise cause paint to buckle/ripple/etc.

Stovetop lamp sockets very brittle and are disintegrating.


In effect (given the unit is wired correctly) without insulation on the socket, you have an exposed neutral wire in your oven -- this is certainly not as dangerous as an exposed hot wire, but does present risks. I recommend replacing the light sockets -- you'll sleep and cook a lot better.
