Glass Doors On Wood Heaters Recalled

WASHINGTON, D.C. (August 2)-- The Jackes Evans Manufacturing Company in St. Louis, Missouri, is recalling the glass doors on approximately 1,000 wood-burning heaters, the U.S. Consumer product Safety Commission today reported.

CPSC reported that the glass can break, permitting live sparks to escape into the living area. No injuries have been reported.

The recall applies to the doors on those model WEL "Hearth-Glo" wood-burning circulator heaters which contain 11 x 13-inch glass and door frames with an inner diameter of 10 x 12 1/2 inches. The model letters "WEL" appear on a nameplate on the back of the heater.

The heaters were sold primarily by hardware stores nationwide from November, 1977, through October, 1978.

The firm is not recalling the doors on similar Hearth-Glo heaters with 9 x 13-inch glass and frames with an inner diameter of 8 1/4 x 12 1/2 inches, since it used a different type of glass which does not pose the fire hazard.

Consumer should contact their retailers to arrange for receipt of free replacement doors.
