I purchased 3 hydro-sil baseboard heaters in 2010. Two of them would have the control box get very hot and then they quit working. The last one: model #hhp15002 from Santech industries inc in ft mill sc, caught on fire tonight. It was by the control box. If we had been sleeping our house would have caught fire. There were actual flames. I'm concerned that other people with these same heaters could be in danger. I have a photo of the burned heater but didn't now how to add it. Thank you

I still have the heater. I haven't contacted the manufacturer because they are out of business.
