Why is the hot tub plug red hot?
Hired a hot tub today. Been plugged in for approx 6 hours in a socket in the garage. Just felt the plug and it's red hot. Very concerned as this is meant to stay plugged in all night to maintain the water temperature, but surely can't be normal? Not sure if the fault is with the plug, socket or appliance but not taking any chances. Have currently plugged it in in a different socket in my kitchen - 1 hour in its warm but not hot. Can't leave it plugged in there all night as woukd mean leaving a window open so think its going to have to be unplugged overnight unless anyone can reassure me it's safe?
Is this a good question?
