The handle for holding the hair dryer gets very hot using it on the Warm High setting, and quickly becomes too hot to touch. It's hottest at the part where my pointer finger holds the handle, right over the seam joining the purple and silver parts of the dryer. I purchased the hair dryer at Bed Bath and Beyond within the past several months so it is not an old hair dryer. The hair dryer started becoming hot like this within the past few weeks and started with the hot-to-the-touch taking longer to build up than occurred the past two day, at which time, it became too hot to hold within 5 minutes. The hair dryer information is as follows: Revlon 1875 Ionic Ceramic; Model RV484, 1875W 125VAC 60Hz.
