The black backing of my machine is melting. The backing is similar to a hardened tar composite,I have had the machine for about 24 months if that. We came across the problem by chance we have now disconnected the machine, and we are awaiting for an engineer to call from Hotpoint. Further more I would just like to say that on no occasion had we smelt anything burning/overheating!
