Hi @superseed47 ,
 
You should get the heater tested as it may be drawing too much current from the outlet and this is causing the cable and the outlet cover to melt.
 
As @vertinhol says, check the model information label on the heater to find out the power specifications for the heater.
 
If for example it says that the power is 20002400 W at 240VAC then this can be adequately and safely provided by the cable and the outlet in most correctly wired homes.
If for example it says that the power is 20002400 W at 240VAC then this can be adequately and safely provided by the cable and the outlet in most correctly wired homes.
 
If the cable and outlet have melted it is more likely a problem with the heater.
 
''The heater could become a dangerous fire hazard'' if you increase the cable rating and the current supply to the heater!
