If you are the owner of a Dyson Air Multiplier, heated version, then you might want to check your model because Dyson has issued a recall for two models, then AM04 and AM05 heaters because of a potential fire risk.
Dyson are known for their quality build and design, but as you know, not everything is perfect and from time-to-time things go wrong. The British company has now issued a voluntary recall for the heater versions of their Air Multiplier fans.
The reason for the recall — is because on rare occasions some models have been known to short-circuit and catch on fire. Thankfully, the fires were contained within the fan and so there have not been reports of injury or property damage.
Dyson reports that around 1,000,000 of these Air Multiplier fans have been sold worldwide, although the company has yet to update us on the final number of units that will be affected by this recall.
We do know that the recall has already started in Israel and the United Arab Emirates, although we expect more countries will follow shortly.
Dyson Air Multiplier recall process — All you need to do is check your model HERE on their website and once you have registered your product if it is one of the faulty models, then Dyson will contact you within 24 hours to arrange free collection of the old model and to deliver a new model, which will come with two years warranty.
With the start of this Dyson recall we expect to see a Dyson Air Multiplier fire sale down the line, as they will want to offload a huge number of refurbished units.
