I used the standard charger cable (the one that comes with the car) for 5 months before getting my High Power Wall Charger (HPWC). I then put the original charger in my trunk. Last week I took it out to charge at a friends house and I couldn't get the 240V adapter off the cable to switch to the 110V adapter (yes, I was pushing the release button). I finally pried it off with a screwdriver and I saw that the inside of the adapter had melted to the inside of the cable connection.
I brought it to Tesla Fremont yesterday and they replaced it. The service tech said they had seen this a few times before.
I would suggest that you remove your adapter and look inside. If the plastic is melting around the pins, it's time to call Tesla.
