What Happened to My Hairdryer? - An Electrical Question

Jump to last reply

I have this blow dryer I bought when we lived in Berlin almost 30 years ago. The label states it is 220 - 240, and I've used hundreds of times, all over including Africa, China, as well as the UK. I always have it because some hotel dryers are pretty pathetic.

I couldn't find the hotel dryer in my room so I decided to use my own; I plugged it in but had not turned it on at all... Then I noticed some minutes later that it was smoking... a burning smell and smoke coming from it even though it had not been turned on. Yikes.

Any thoughts on what happened? I know it's old so it had to give up the ghost at some point but it was pretty scary for something like that to happen when it wasn't even on.

Does anyone have a theory about what went wrong? I probably will just toss it...
