Home Depot issues recall of Soleil portable fan heaters

Home Depot is recalling the Soleil portable fan heater after hundreds reported a fire hazard.

Home Depot is recalling 107,000 units of Soleil portable fan heaters, after the product generated 464 melting-related reports. 

The plastic housing of the fan has displayed a tendency to melt and catch fire during use, though no injuries or property damage have been reported yet.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission says it's urging consumers to return them to Home Depot for a full refund.

The model in question has a model number of LH-707, printed on a sticker on the underside of the fan. They were sold at Home Depot stores between September 2012 and May 2013 for a sticker price of roughly $15.
