Recalls this week: air compressors, PER Systems
About 100,000 HDX and Powermate two-gallon air compressors have been recalled because the terminals of the pressure switch can come into contact with the motor housing and electrify the air compressors, posing a shock hazard to consumers. They include HDX model numbers/sku numbers include VSP0000201.HDX, VSP0000201.HDX1 and 947282, with numeric serial numbers. The model and serial numbers are printed on a sticker on the back of the top air compressor cylinder. The Powermate model numbers include VSP0000201, VSP0000201.01, VSP0000201.KIT and VSP0000201.NS with numeric serial numbers. The Powermate air compressors are red with Powermate printed in white on the top cylinder. HDX or Powermate compressors with a letter in the serial numbers are not included. They were sold from June 2010 through October 2013.
