Campbell Hausfeld has recalled about 16,000 air compressors. The compressor’s thermal overload, which shuts the unit off when it overheats, can fail. This can lead to overheating, melting of parts and a risk of fire. Thus far, no injuries have been reported. The recall involves the Campbell Hausfeld model HU200099AV air compressor with a 20-gallon tank. The recall includes date codes ranging from January 2009 through June 2009. The model number and date code can be located on the back of the tank. Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled air compressor and return it to any Wal-Mart for a full refund. For additional information, contact Campbell Hausfeld at (800) 241-0448 or visit the manufacturer’s Web site at www.chpower.com.
