It's shorting out. You need to replace it. Did you get an off brand? If you tell us which machine you have we can direct you to the correct replacement. Go to this link to help identify your Mac: http://www.ifixit.com/Mac-Parts

+ Please replace sooner rather than later--if it shorts completely it could cause a fire.

The more the laptop gets used, the warmer the adapter may become.A relatively warm power adapter is normal, especially when the laptopis being used and the battery is being charged
