Kenmore fan heaters sold at Kmart and Sears stores last fall are being recalled due to overheating and fire hazards.

 

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said, “the product may ignite surrounding items or cause burns for consumers because of a broken motor mount that may lead the unit to overheat.”

 

Sears and Kmart have already received seven reports of the fan heaters smoking or catching fire. It’s been two reports of injuries as well. The recalls are about 42,500 units that were sold between September and November of 2013 for $35 and $40.

 

The fan heaters are white and gray with a measurement of about 12 inches tall by 9 inches wide. The heaters have two dials at the top for temperature and fan speed along with a red on-off button on the front base. Kenmore is printed on the front of the heaters at the bottom.

 

Customers are being asked to immediately turn off heater unit, unplug them and return them for a full refund.
