Chapin Manufacturing Works. Inc., Batavia, New York, to correct a possible fire hazard with the electric plug. Del-Rain and Chapin began the voluntary recall program in cooperation with the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) because they found that potentially defective plugs which could possibly cause a fire had been used in certain heaters. To date there have been no known fires and no known injuries. Nonetheless, the companies have initiated the repair program for all affected heaters sold nationwide since October of 1987. Any consumer having a Pelonis Disc Furnace, Model #P861-TC or Model #P861-TC/VHC, with serial number ranging from 10,001US through 119,000US, should discontinue using the heater and call Chapin toll-free at 1-800-444-3140 from 5-10 p.m. to arrange for the repair of the heater free of charge.
