ATLANTA -- Home Depot issued a recall on Soleil portable fan heaters because they can melt, deform and catch fire during use, causing a fire hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission reported Thursday.
The Atlanta-based home improvement giant got 464 reports of the fans melting, but no injuries or property damage have been reported.
The units were sold from September 2012 through May 2013 for about $15.
The recall involves Soleil portable fan heaters with model number LH-707. The model number is printed on the underside of the fan on a sticker.
The units were made by Shanghai Limach Mfg. Co. Ltd. of China.
