The recall pertains to the box fans the company manufactures. The product is being recalled due to reports of fires caused by motor failures as a result of electrical failure in the fan’s motor.
The recall involves box fans with the model numbers 3720, 3723 and 3733. It also includes Galaxy box fans with the model numbers 4733 which have the date 2002-03 or 2003-04 stamped at the bottom of the metal frame.
