This Dryer always has had a warm to hot touch while in use. The longer I had it on the hotter it got. I use the dryer maybe once a week on average. About a couple weeks ago it started to have a slight burning smell while in use. Last night (10-29-2011) I was drying my daughter's hair and the handle started to smoke and the plastic started to bubble right next to the high low off switch.
