Micromar Manufacturing Heat Machine Recalled
London, Ontario (SafetyAlerts) - The Micromar
Manufacturing Corporation is recalling all Heat Machine model HMB2000tc/vhc ceramic
portable electric space heaters, sold nationwide since September of this year, to correct
a possible fire hazard.
Micromar began the voluntary recall program because they found that a potentially
defective component had been used in the heaters which could possibly cause a fire. To
date, the firm has had no reports of fires or injuries associated with the heaters.
Nonetheless, the company has initiated a repair program for all potentially affected
heaters in this line.
Consumers having a Micromar Heat Machine 2000 model number HMG2000tc or HMG2000vhc, should
stop using the heater, unplug it, then call the company toll free at 1-800-387-8971 for
instructions on returning the heater for necessary free repair. Consumers should have the
model and serial number of the heater on hand when they call. These numbers are located on
the bottom of the heater on a silver colored label.
