In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), Black & Decker (U.S.) Inc., of Towson, MD, U.S., announced the voluntarily recall of about 265,000 18-V cordless drill/drivers.

The drill's switch can malfunction and overheat, posing the possibility of a fire hazard to consumers. Black & Decker has received 20 reports of melting, smoking, or fires in the drills, including two minor burn injuries.

Mass merchandisers, home centers, and hardware stores nationwide sold the drill/drivers from September 1997 through February 2002 for between U.S. $50 and $80. The drill/drivers were sold separately and as part of various tool kits.

The recalled 18-V, cordless drill/drivers have the following model numbers and date codes:

  • Model Number: CD1800; Date Codes: 20011952 through 20020652; Color: Orange

  • Model Number: PS3700; Date Codes: 973652 through 983052; Color: Jade

  • Model Number: PS3725; Date Codes: 20003852 through 20013652; Color: Jade

  • Model Number: PS3750; Date Codes: 20002454 through 20005252; Color: Jade

    The recalled units were manufactured in China.

    Consumers have been advised to stop using the drill/drivers immediately, remove the battery, and contact Black & Decker to receive a free repair.
