What’s the Problem?

According to the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission (CPSC) [1], this recall affects DeWALT cordless kerosene forced-air heaters model number DXH90CFAK with serial numbers 340902-20001001 through 340902-20004000 and model number DXH90CFAKM with serial numbers 340901-20001001 through 340901-20001500.

“Enerco has received one report of a heater starting unexpectedly when it was moved while in standby without being turned off,” CPSC said. “No injuries have been reported.”

Affected kerosene heaters have a black tank/base, a yellow body, and a gray combustion barrel. “DeWALT” and “90,000 BTU” are printed in yellow on the combustion barrel.

The recalled heaters were sold at Lowe’s stores and farm and supply stores nationwide from June 2020 through November 2020 for about $350.

If you purchased a kerosene heater that is affected by this recall, you should stop using it immediately and contact Enerco for a free replacement corded heater.

This recall began on February 3, 2021.

Kerosene Heater Safety Tips

As the winter months approach and temperatures drop, you may be looking for cheap ways to heat your house. Space heaters may seem like an easy, low-cost alternative, but they can pose safety risks that electric systems or gas and oil heaters don’t. Take the following safety precautions to keep you and your home heated safely when using a kerosene space heater.

  • Never use kerosene heaters as a permanent heat source – First, understand that kerosene heaters are not recommended for long-term use. Although these devices can heat spaces well and cheaply, they are only meant to be short-term or even emergency solutions.
  • Install smoke and CO detectors – Because of their potential for causing fires or carbon monoxide poisoning, kerosene heaters should only be used indoors for a short period of time with consistent breaks in between use. You should install CO detectors throughout your house, especially near bedrooms and rooms closest to the heater.
  • Keep heaters 3 feet away from flammables – Be sure that your heater stays at least 3 feet away from flammable objects and sits on a level surface. Take precautions to ensure your children and pets don’t get too close to the heater when it is on or when cooling down.
