Question about Heating & Cooling
HI, I am assuming that the cord end on the heater is what melted in use. This happens because the male ends can be dirty or not making good contact with the receptacle. The metal is not making as good contact as it should and the heater current is being drawn through a smaller amount of the metal on the plug. This causes heating, and this then builds and more heating, and so on. I would suggest that you change out the male cord end with a new one.

1. Undersized plug. 2. May be heater runs with high current. 3. Loose wiring in plug.
