Dimplex North America and the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission launched a voluntary recall of Dimplex Remote Control Kits for Electric Fireplaces and Stoves. The CPSC said consumers should stop using the recalled products immediately.
The CPSC said the plug-in wall unit can overheat, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. The recalled remote control kits are used with Dimplex, Electraflame, Symphony, Optiflame, Electralog, and Charmglow brand electric fireplaces, stoves and fireplace inserts. They include a black or dark gray hand-held remote control and a black or dark gray wall unit that plugs into an electrical wall outlet.
Recalled model numbers include 47-1001, 47-1010-R and APT-1315. The model number is printed on either the plug-in unit or the hand-held remote control. The fireplace or stove's brand name is printed on both units. Recall details are posted at:
