BISSELL announced a voluntary recall of their Cordless Multi-Surface Wet Dry vacuum due to the circuit board overheating and smoking, initiating a fire hazard. The recall originated on January 12, 2023.
Why were BISSELL products recalled?
The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) received 66 reports of BISSELL products smoking and emitting a burning odor. Five of these reports disclosed the vacuum catching on fire, with three noting minor property damage. One individual experienced a burn injury.
Which BISSELL products are affected by this recall?
The recall affects one type of vacuum cleaner, the Cordless Multi-Surface Wet Dry Vacuum, specifically model numbers 2551, 2551W, and 25519. Consumers can check the model number of their product by looking at the label on the clean water tank. The number will show atop a large black bar.
Use of an affected vacuum should cease immediately and remove it from the charging base.
BISSELL states the reasoning for the recall on their website: “In rare instances, some battery management circuit boards may be susceptible to localized hot spots, posing a risk of overheating and possible risk of fire. We hold the quality of our products and the well-being of our consumer to the highest standards. To minimize any potential hazard to consumers, BISSELL is conducting a voluntary recall of the product.”
