A large Product Recall of about 142,000 Hoover® WindTunnel Canister Vacuums has been announced by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC). The Recalled Vacuums were manufactured in China and imported by Hoover Inc., of Glenwillow, Ohio.

The CPSC is advising consumers to stop using the Defective Vacuums immediately and notes that it is illegal to resell or attempt to resell a recalled consumer product.

The power cord between the power nozzle and the wand connector can short-circuit posing fire and shock hazards to consumers. This condition can occur even if the vacuum has been turned off but left plugged in.

To date, Hoover has received 69 reports of the Defective Product overheating or electrical malfunction, including one report of fire and smoke damage, and two reports of carpet damage. There has been one report of a minor injury.

This recall involves the Hoover WindTunnel Bagless Canister Vacuum model S3755. The vacuum is silver and black in color, and comes with a power nozzle. The model number can be found on a label on the bottom of the canister.

The recalled Hoover® WindTunnel Canister Vacuums were sold by mass merchandisers, department stores, and independent vacuum retailers nationwide and online from March 2003 to December 2008 for between $250 and $280.

Consumers should contact Hoover for a free repair. Hoover can be reached, toll-free, at 1.888.564.2066 between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m., Eastern Time, Monday through Friday, or at the firm’s website.
