Our queen-size mattress was covered with a Perfect Fit Low Voltage Mattress Warming Pad #LVPQ-4-2. I noticed that the connector between the power supply/control unit and my side of the mattress would get hot. Last night I rested my elbow against it (the warmer pad was covered by a flannel sheet) and received a second-degree burn approximately the size of a dime.

The connector and wires have a brownish discoloration. This is our second identical unit; we stopped using the first one after the same wires turned brown and appeared scorched.

The pad has been disconnected and will be removed. The burn has been treated per normal first aid protocols.

Photos are available.
