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.
