Space Heater Recall Due To Fires

Posted: Updated:

Are you using a space heater to help fight the winter chill in your home or office? You'll want to check the label because Sears and Kmart are recalling nearly 43,000 Kenmore oscillating fan heaters.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, broken motor mounts can cause the units to overheat and catch fire. There have been seven reports of the unit smoking or starting fires.

The heaters have a model number of 127.90914310 and were sold in stores from September through November.

If you have one you can return it to any Sears or Kmart store for a full refund.

The CPSC has more detailed information on the heater.
