(Meredith) – Vornado Air is recalling their Sunny CS (cribside) space heaters after discovering they pose a fire and burn hazard.

A broken motor mount can allow the electric heating element to come in contact with the interior plastic materials and ignite.

This recall involves Vornado Sunny CS (cribside) model EH1-0090 electric space heaters. They were sold in white with an accent of melon and gray colors.

The heaters measure approximately 12 inches high, 8 inches deep, and 11 inches at the base. The controls are mounted in a soft touch panel on the top of the unit with a multi-color display in the center of the control panel.

“Vornadobaby” is printed on the side of the heater. The Vornado logo is printed on the front center of the unit.

The model/type (SUNNY CS EH1-0090) and serial number are printed on a silver decal on the bottom of the unit under the elastic cord wrap. The recalled heaters have the numbers 1 and 7 as the fourth and fifth digits of the serial number (XXX17-XXXXXX).

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled space heaters, unplug them and contact Vornado for instructions on how to receive a free replacement unit, including free shipping.

Vornado has received five reports of the electric heaters catching on fire. No injuries or property damage have been reported.

These products were sold at:

  • Bed Bath & Beyond
  • buybuy Baby
  • Other stores nationwide
  • Online at Amazon.com
  • Online at Target.com
  • Online at Vornado.com
  • Other various websites

The heaters were sold from October 2017 through December 2017 for about $100.

About 5,000 units have been affected.
