I think I would not have thought twice why the plug could be hot. Actually I would have thought that it is normal for it to be a bit warm to the touch. Even I were to open up the thing I won't know if it was properly assembled.


Elder boy went to the hardware shop to buy a new plug and the extension head to connect the wire and I now have a brand new one extension :smile:

I too think it is good to pick up such skills.

He fixed the Europace steamer that short circuited some time ago when he extended the wire for me.

Only downside, I can't buy new electrical appliances so readily now :rotflmao:

The photo is the brand new one.

I do not think an appliance with a safety mark gives 100% assurance as I heard that the QC is only a sample testing, not entire batch 100% testing.

I learned from my dad, but I don't think my brother did because he was never interested. My husband learned from various people (his brother, me, reading up) but handles most of it now. This is reminding me that I need to teach my daughters!
