After using the product for a brief time, I smelled burning plastic. I immediately turned off the blower and could tell the odor was coming from inside the engine compartment. I let it cool down and put it away. The following week I used it again. I again smelled burning plastic. I assumed that because it was new the plastic smell was from that. After a brief time, I saw smoke come from inside the motor and it caught fire a short time later. I immediately unplugged it and set it on the driveway and covered it was a blanket I had in the garage. I threw the item in the trash the following week.
