Hoover Recalls Vacuums For Cord Problems

July 20, 2010 Updated Jul 20, 2010 at 3:34 PM EDT

About 108,000 Hoover WindTunnel T-Series Bagless Upright Vacuum Cleaners have been recalled.

The vacuums have a feature that enables the cord to wind inside the vacuum for storage.

But, the power cord is not properly routed or securely seated in the cord rewind assembly.

That allows the power cord to be pulled loose.

This poses fire and shock hazards.

The recall involves Hoover® WindTunnel T-Series™ Bagless Upright vacuum cleaners with the cord rewind feature.

The following model numbers and manufacturing codes are included in the recall.

Model Numbers Manufacturing code ends with...
UH70110 H09A
UH70120 I09A
UH70200 J09A
UH70205 K09A

Vacuums with the manufacturing code K09A followed by a green dot are not included in this recall.

Vacuum cleaners with the cord rewind feature sold after November 2009 and with any other manufacturing code are not included in this recall.

The model number and manufacturing code can be found on a label on the lower rear part of the vacuum cleaner.

You should immediately stop using the recalled vacuum cleaners and contact Hoover for a free repair.
