About 70,500 Portable Space Heaters and Portable Oscillating Space Heaters have been recalled by Big Lots, of Columbus, Ohio. The heaters can overheat and melt, posing a fire or electric shock hazard. Big Lots has received four reports of the product overheating and melting. There are no reports of injury, fire or property damage. This recall is of two models of 1500 watt Climate Keeper ceramic heaters. Both models have a fan, two dials on top, a wire mesh panel in front and the name “Climate Keeper” and a label on the bottom with the model number and ETL 3130679. Model #FH107A has grey plastic housing. Model #PTC-902T is an oscillating heater with silver-grey plastic housing, a molded handle on top of the heater and a small extra button between the two dials which controls the oscillation.
The heaters were sold exclusively at Big Lots stores nationwide from September 2010 through March 2012 for about $20 for Model #FH107A and $25 for Model #PTC-902T.
