Electric baseboard heater was used occasionally ran it on low setting to supplement heating a few weeks during winter each year. A couple weeks ago a visiting relative increased the temperature and the outer left side melted where the rod attaches inside. The resulting smoke and fumes were nuisance and if not noticed could have caused fire. Unit was unplugged and not used since. I understand the Type I of this model was recalled but this is Type II.

Similar reports for this same newer Type II model that has not been recalled yet.
