King of Fans – Malfunction

King of Fans said the ceiling fan malfunctions were caused by “an isolated manufacturing defect with the assembly of the fan blade’s locking clip to the fan flywheel.”

“One of the two screws retaining the locking clip is not adequately secured to the flywheel,” the company said in a statement posted on its website. “If this occurs, the blade may detach from the fan during use, posing an injury hazard.”

The CPSC said the recalled ceiling fans cost about $150 and were sold exclusively at Home Depot (HD)stores across the United States and on the company’s website from April 2020 through October 2020.

Home Depot confirmed via email that it sold about 80,000 of the fans before pulling them from stores. When it discovered the issue, the retailer said it “voluntarily recalled the product and stopped sales.”

“We’re committed to the safety and quality of our products,” a Home Depot spokesperson said via email.
