Why does my blowdryer try to ignite my hair?

Asked by electricsky (825points) May 26th, 2009

I got a new ceramic blowdryer, and when I put it on high and hot (no other settings like low/hot high/warm, etc. seem to cause this problem) it’ll suddenly make a clicking noise and a little white spark will come out. Scares the hell out of me every time. Why does it do this?

At first, I was thinking the air intake on the back was clogged but then you mentioned the spark. Return it – immediately. Also tell the manufacturer by calling the 800 number or going to their website. By reporting it, you might be saving other people.

That’s not right. Take it back.

Sounds as if it has a short. As others have said, take it back to the store, and/or notify the company.
