Based upon the reports on Plug Share, it sounds like plug was making loose contact, causing buzzing, relay chatter, and/or failure to charge before it finally overheated to the point of damage.
I never had a problem with the 2011 (3.3 kW charger), but have had a few instances of the plug on public L2 chargers getting excessively warm with the 2015 because it draws more current. I always feel the plug after a few minutes to make sure it is not heating when I use public chargers.
Agree with all of this. Also I'd say it's a good idea to visually inspect the plug for any signs of damage or overheating (melting, charring, arcing, discoloration) before plugging in at a public charger. Chances are any problems have already left signs. Also check the connectors at home from time to time.
