Blower/Vac recall

October 11, 2006

Undated--Black and Decker is recalling 272,000 Blower/Vacs.  The Black and Decker BV4000 type one Blower/Vac is being recalled because a loose connection between the motor and an extension cord can cause it to over heat and catch fire.  

      So far, 187 units have over heated causing some minor burns to the users.   The units were sold at discount, home improvement, and hardware stores for 70 dollars between April 2004 and July 2005.

      If you have one of the units, contact Black and Decker for a free repair kit at (866) 853-2138 or click here.
