145,000 Kenmore Brand Coffee Makers Recalled Due to Fire Hazard

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Sears, Roebuck and Co.; the great indoors; and Kmart Corp., of Hoffman Estates, Ill., have announced a voluntary recall of the Kenmore and Kenmore Elite Coffee Makers.

The wiring in approximately 145,000 units can overheat, posing burn and fire hazards to consumers. Sears has received 20 reports of coffee makers overheating, including 12 fires, causing damage to counter tops, cabinet damage, and plastic melting on the floor. No injuries have been reported.

This recall involves 12-cup Kenmore coffee makers sold in black, white, and red with the following model numbers: 100.80006 (black), 100.81006 (white), and 100.82006 (red). The recall also involves 12-cup Kenmore Elite coffee makers with thermal carafe (model number 100.90007) and 14-cup Kenmore Elite coffee makers (model number 100.90006). The model number can be found on the bottom of the unit. There is a Kenmore or Kenmore Elite logo on the front bottom of the maker.

The units were manufactured in China and were sold at Sears, Sears Hardware, the great indoors, and Kmart stores nationwide, as well as Sears.com and Kmart.com, from August 2007 through April 2008 for between $30 and $100.

Consumers should immediately stop using the coffee makers and take them to their nearest Sears or Kmart store to obtain a free replacement coffee maker.
