Recall Details Report an Incident Involving this Product

About 1,500

The recall includes Insolroll roller shades available with a solar powered motor (model #IN-SOL-R) or rechargeable motor (model #IN-RCG-R). The model numbers are printed on the body of the motor located inside the roller tube. These rechargeable motors on Insolroll interior solar screen and blackout shades have built-in lithium ion batteries that are used with a solar panel charger or plug-in charger. The 18-inch width by 1-5/16-inch high solar panel charger is white on the interior side and black toward the exterior. The plug-in charger is black and measures about 3-inches high by 1-5/8 inch wide by 1-1/16 inch deep with a 13-foot cord. The motors raise and lower the shades controlled by a hand-held remote control or surface-mounted wall switch. The manufacturer’s name is printed on a sticker on the roller tube that can be seen by taking down the shade and removing the fabric completely.


Insolroll has received one report of the motor on the shade overheating and creating a fire. No injuries have been reported.  


Consumers should immediately unplug the solar panel charger or unplug the plug-in charger and contact your Insolroll dealer to receive a free replacement motor and installation instructions. If dealer unknown, contact Insolroll for a list of dealers.
