Installing a Hot Water Dispenser
[ad#block]Electrical Question: I have a hot water dispenser by Cecilware, model # HWD2.  120Volt  1.8KW, 15 amps.

I am not sure the plug gets hot because something is wrong with inside wiring or wire burns because something is wrong with plug & cord.

Please help me! I would be really happy if I can fix it (will save me $900!).
Thank you so much!
