I just got a Northern Tools meat grinder. I've never used one before and just tried it out...I see what appears to be a large spark inside the unit (through the vents/cracks where the parts are joined) after I have ground the meat and upon pushing the "off" button.
Does this seem normal?
I live in a very old 1930s building, don't know if that changes anything but was wondering from a safety perspective.
Thank you.

I am not really sure? I bought a Tasin meat grinder in December and I haven't had an issue yet. Make sure the plug voltage and the inlet voltage in the wall are compatible. Maybe you should give the company you bought the grinder from a call just to be safe. You may get a new one under warranty. I am sure they would be more than happy to help you. I have had a few questions about my unit and the company I bought it from has been so helpful :thumbs up
