Home Easy of Fairfield, N.J., is recalling about 3,000 personal electric heaters.

The toggle power switch can spark when the switch is used, posing a fire hazard.

The company has received three reports of the toggle power switch causing a fire. No injuries or property damage have been reported.

This recall involves the Home Easy Geek Heat DH-QN06 personal heaters. The Geek Heat logo is printed on the top of the heater near the vent and the model number is printed on the underside of the heater. The heater measures 20 inches in length, 13 inches in width, and is sold in white.

The heaters, manufactured in China, were sold at Army & Air Force Exchange Service stores nationwide, at the New Jersey chain of Value Zone stores, and online at amazon.com, walmart.com. target.com and wayfair.com from October 2020, through January of 2021, for about $23.

What to do

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled heaters and contact Home Easy for a full refund.

Consumers should destroy the recalled heaters by unplugging the heater prior to cutting the electrical cord. This will make the product inoperable. Consumers should also prominently mark on the product that it is “defective” before following local disposal guidelines.

Consumers should take a photo of the cut electrical cord for submission to Home Easy at recall@homeeasy.net. Home Easy is contacting all known purchasers directly.

Consumers may contact Home Easy toll-free at (844) 801-8880 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. (ET) Monday through Friday or online at www.geektechnology.net for more information.
