What are the defects?

The problem was caused by an accumulation of negative conditions mainly unsatisfactory maintenance and incorrect installation. These negative conditions may favour an elongation of the heating element that in turn may cause the edge of the heating element pushing to the side of the unit, causing a wire cut. This wire cut may lead to an electric ark, which may lead to a spark which could cause a fire.
