Hi, I'm Pete. Welcome to JustAnswer! I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply ASAP.
What gauge is the wire?
High voltage alone will not cause a wire to burn - there has to be a large current draw, possibly from a short somewhere.
This could be due to a fault in the unit or damaged wiring somewhere.
First, you should test the wire for discontinuity. Any continuity will indicate a short.
Ok, let me know how it goes...
