    #1819961 - 08/16/03 04:00 PM (14 years, 8 days ago)

just curious, if a heating pad is on low (constant 80 F) can it catch on fire?

it's not touching anything but im always paranoid about it

its possible for bad wiring or something to catch fire, but i doubt it will happen. if you are worried, you should go to a pet shop and get a lizard heating pad. those are meant to be left on all day

they are pretty safe but I would keep water away from it

I also use a heat pad and I never had any problems with it

If it is insulated too much so that the heat can't escape it can get hot enough to melt the plastic off of the wires and it will start to smoke and smoulder.
