The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), in cooperation with floor care maker Bissell Homecare Inc. (Grand Rapids, MI, U.S.), announced the voluntary recall of Bissell upright carpet deep cleaners.

According to Bissell, the carpet cleaner's metal upper handle can pose an electric shock hazard to consumers. Bissell has received six reports of consumers receiving shocks from the unit.

The recall includes the following units: PowerLifter(R) Plus (model number 1620), PowerSteamer(R) ClearView(R) (model numbers 1692, 1692-1, 1692-R), Power Steamer(R) (model numbers 1685, 1693, 1693-R, 1693-W, 1694, 1694-1, 1694-R), Power Lifter(R) (model number 1694-3), and Rubbermaid X-tra-Lift(TM) (model 9E00).

The recalled upright carpet deep cleaners have an open handgrip, a partially metal handle, and come in a variety of colors. The word “BISSELL” is printed on the front of the unit. The recalled carpet cleaners have date codes beginning with 01, 02, 03, or 04.

The date codes and model numbers are printed on a label on the bottom of the unit. Cleaners with the model number and date codes listed above that are marked “Inspected” on or near the label are not included in the recall.

The carpet cleaners were sold at major discount, appliance, and department stores throughout the U.S. from January 2001 through December 2004 for between U.S. $100 and $145.

Consumers were advised to stop using the carpet cleaners immediately and contact BISSELL to receive a free inspection and repair, if necessary.
