About 1,500 Insolroll Solar Powered and Rechargeable Motor Roller Shades have been recalled by Insolroll Window Shading Systems, of Louisville, Colo. The motor of these roller shades has a built-in lithium battery that can overheat while being charged, posing a fire risk. The recall includes Insolroll roller shades available with a solar powered motor (model #IN-SOL-R) or rechargeable motor (model #IN-RCG-R). The model numbers are printed on the body of the motor located inside the roller tube. These rechargeable motors on Insolroll interior solar screen and blackout shades have built-in lithium ion batteries that are used with a solar panel charger or plug-in charger.
The 18-inch width by 1-5/16-inch high solar panel charger is white on the interior side and black toward the exterior. The plug-in charger is black and measures about 3 inches high by 1-5/8 inch wide by 1-1/16 inch deep with a 13-foot cord. The motors raise and lower the shades controlled by a hand-held remote control or surface-mounted wall switch. The manufacturer’s name is printed on a sticker on the roller tube that can be seen by taking down the shade and removing the fabric completely. Insolroll has received one report of the motor on the shade overheating and creating a fire. No injuries have been reported, according to the company.
The shades were sold at Insolroll independent window covering installer retailers nationwide from June 2012 through March 2013 for between $400 and $700 per window shade. Consumers should immediately unplug the solar panel charger or unplug the plug-in charger and contact their Insolroll dealer to receive a free replacement motor and installation instructions. If the dealer is unknown, consumers may contact Insolroll for a list of dealers at 1-800-447-5534 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. MT Monday through Friday or online at www.Insolroll.com and click the Product Recall button for more information.
