Wow, Jean, your story has made me think more about proper safety when running and using the dryer! I’ve always been good to clean out the dryer vent regularly after each wash, but the ducts don’t always get cleaned on a schedule, and I have left the house with the dryer still running (usually just a few minutes left on the timer, though), but rest assured, the children do come with me. It’s amazing the things that can go wrong with electrical stuff in use, if not used or maintained properly, or even if not wired correctly to begin with! Thanks for sharing your story...it could quite possibly be life saving!

How long does it take to answer someone’s questions? Several people ask them and not one got an answer.
