The consumer says he had the unit plugged in. He says after about 30 minutes he started smelling something and then noticed smoke coming out from the top of the heater. It was very hot to the touch. The consumer says their was melting right on top of the cabinet portion of the heater. He has never had issues with it before but hasnt used it until recently. He unplugged the unit. he states that if he had not been home it would have caught on fire. They sent me a lable to return and will replace it, they said. I sent it back, we'll see what happens.

Comment from LASKO PRODUCTS INC. 2/7/2012
Unit returned for evaluation. Plastic near grill deformed slightly, likely due to something draped over unit while operating. Inspection showed unit still operates properly without further incident. Customer given replacement unit.
