About 9,000 wire feed welders have been recalled by Star Asia USA, LLC doing business as Titan, of Kent, Wash. The wire welder’s torch does not have a cold contactor as erroneously stated on the packaging and instruction manual. Without this feature, the welder generates an electrical arc immediately upon contact with the welding material, posing a burn hazard to consumers.
The recall involves the Vaper 90 amp flux wire feed welders with model number 41181. The wire welders are red and black. “Vaper” and “90 amp flux wire welder” can be found on the product’s operation panel. The model number can be found on the top right hand corner of the package and on the first page of the users manual. They were sold by Pep Boys, Auto Zone and various other auto parts and tool centers nationwide from October 2006 through March 2010 for about $170.
Consumers should immediately stop using the wire welders and contact Star Asia to obtain a corrected instructions manual and packaging or for instructions on returning the product for a full refund. Consumer Contact: For additional information, contact Customer Service at (800) 386-0191.
