Intertex has recalled nearly 35,000 blower fans or air movers. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the capacitor in the blower fans can overheat, posing a fire hazard. Owners should immediately stop using the recalled blower fans and contact the firm for a free repair kit including an S-3 capacitor and installation instructions.
Already, there have been five confirmed cases of the capacitor overheating in the blower fans and causing fire-related property damage totaling about $75,000. No injuries have been reported.
The recalled B-Air VP-33 Blower Fans are used for commercial use for remediation. The recalled models were manufactured before January 1, 2018, and sold in blue, red or green in a neon yellow-colored box. The B-Air logo is on the vent and on the product label.
