That particular machine-smoking was not my fault, nor was it the machine's fault, so I don't know if it would qualify under those rules - i.e., it didn't cook "itself". Now, if you were to add "miswired electrical socket" to the list, then, yeah.
I was eventually able to repair it. One of the terminals was a total loss though.
