Dyson Bladeless Heaters Recalled Because A Fire Is Too Much Heat

14143_Dyson_AM04_AM05_LARGEWe know that a lot of our readers are fans of Dyson vacuums, but we aren’t sure whether any of you are into their air multipliers, which are totally not mini-portals to a distant dimension. Someone out there is, because they’ve expanded the line to include portable heaters. Some of these units have been heating a little too much lately, and 380,000 of them have been recalled in North America.

Specifically, the units develop an electrical short and overheat. While there have been no recorded house fires, 82 units have short-circuited, and a few were found burned or melted.

If you have one in your home, you should unplug it immediately and contact Dyson. They will repair the units. You can call Dyson at (866) 297-5303 or file a report through their recall website.
