WASHINGTON, DC -- Wagner Spray Tech Corporation of Minneapolis, MN, is voluntarily modifying certain system 425 and 525 airless paint sprayers to correct a problem that could result in motor fires. According to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), there is a potential for the motor of the sprayer to catch fire if exposed to fumes from highly flammable coatings or solvents used in painting or cleanup.

The modification program covers 17,754 units that were manufactured and distributed between March 1990 and July 1991. These products were involved in six flare-ups. No injuries were reported. CPSC was informed of these incidents by Wagner.

The modification program includes the 425 system, model numbers 0288048 and 0270001 (serial numbers from C900648 through G912544); and the 525 system, model numbers 0288054 and 0270002 (serial numbers from C900648 through G912544). The Wagner paint spray systems were sold in retail outlets, including home center stores, at suggested retail prices of $350 for the 425 systems and $480 for the 525 systems.

Consumers who own these paint sprayers should stop using the products immediately and call Wagner toll-free at 1-800-328-8251 ext. 7170. The company will provide additional information and instructions regarding service centers that will make necessary modifications to the motor.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission is announcing this modification program as part of its mission to protect the public from unreasonable risks of injury and death associated with consumer products. The Commission's objective is to reduce the estimated 28.5 million injuries and 21,600 deaths associated each year with the 15,000 different types of consumer products under CPSC's jurisdiction.
