About 145,000 Kenmore and Kenmore Elite coffee makers are being recalled because the wiring may overheat, posing burn and fire hazards, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said Tuesday.
The company has learned of 20 reports of coffee makers overheating, including 12 fires involving damage to counter tops, cabinet damage and melting on the floor. No injuries have been reported.
The recall involves the following model numbers:
The coffee makers were sold in the U.S. from August 2007 through April 2008 for between $30 and $100 US.
The products were made in China.
Consumers should stop using the products and return them for a replacement.
