I use an electric foot warmer. The plastic cable cover near the control panel is splitting. The wires underneath are intact but visible. Is it safe to cover this with electrical tape?

We do not advise using electrical tape to repair damage to appliances. You should have a Portable Appliance Test (PAT) carried out on the appliance and the tester will be able to advise as to whether it is safe to use or if a repair is necessary.
