Release # 95-105

WASHINGTON, D.C. - CPSC, Fasco Consumer Products Inc. of Fayetteville, N.C., is recalling approximately 661 Dayton Model 4E154 Electric Ceiling Heaters. The heating element terminals could expose consumers to fatal electric shocks or fires.

Grainger wholesale branch stores sold the ceiling heaters nationwide from January 1993 to August 1994 to contractors, electrical supply retailers, and other customers for the store's catalogue price of $54.80. A wire mesh grill covers the heating element. The metal heaters are 10 inches in diameter and have a round metal nameplate with the model number in the center of the heater cover.

This recall applies to all units that have one of the following date codes: A93, B93, C93, D93, E93, F93, G93, H93, J93, K93, L93, M93, A94, B94, C94, and D94.

To determine whether their units are part of this recall, consumers should turn off the heater's power supply at the circuit breaker and inspect the data plate on the upper inside surface of the heater housing. (The data plate may be difficult to see.) If the ceiling heater has one of the above date codes, consumers should stop using the heater immediately and call a qualified electrician to disconnect the unit.

Owners of the heaters should contact the nearest Grainger branch store to obtain a replacement heater. After a qualified electrician removes the defective heater and installs the replacement heater, consumers should send the defective unit back in the new heater's box to Fasco Consumer Products. Fasco will reimburse consumers for reasonable labor and freight charges. For more information, call the company at (800) 252-1182.

Neither CPSC nor Fasco is aware of injuries involving this product. This recall is being taken to prevent the possibility of injury.
