I've had my t3 dryer for about 4 months I maybe use it 3-4 times a week. I went to turn it on this morning and it made this wierd noise like it was blowing up and now it just makes this errrr noise and obviously does not work. I really hope that I registered it but I really don't remember! I bought one of their flat irons too and I might have just registered that one. I really hope I don't have to go out and buy a whole new one, $130 isn't a simple replacement. Not sure what I should do besides try and clean it? I didn't even know you were supposed to take it apart until I looked? I figured they were referring to the bigger dryer.
