Melted plastic in a baseboard heater

Just had this question of mine bumped from 2009. Closed it without thinking someone may have needed the answer. I turned the heater off. Let it cool completely. Took the face off the heater and scraped the plastic off with a razorblade.

  • LOL, more likely someone was just bored and bumping old things.

  • At least crayons are wax and non-toxic! Mine was the plastic handle to a broom!
