UNKNOWN -- I purchased one of these timers a couple years ago that plugs into the wall and then the appliance you're wanting to automatically come on/go off is plugged into it. Over time, I noticed it starting to get off from the time I'd set, but thought it was just the change in daylight hours, my error, etc. Then it began making noise...and got louder. Finally, it completely ceased to keep time (the dial stopped turning) and when I removed it from the outlet with the intention of "retiring" it to the trash bin, I noticed brown "scorched" marks on both the back & top of the timer.

Could a fire have occurred while I was at work, or asleep? Does anyone know of any recalls on this item? Needless to say, I will not purchase another.
