Neon Sign Power Supply Transformers Recalled Due To Fire Hazard
HEICO lighting, a division of EMD Technologies, has announced a recall of approximately 3,900 neon power supply transformers designed to power commercial signs. The transformers do not meet the UL standard for this product and pose a fire risk.
The recalled power supply transformers are in black metal boxes about 4.5 inches long by 3.5 inches wide with rows of vents on all sides. 'HEICO LIGHTING' and the model information are printed on a plate on the transformer.
The recalled models include PLATINUM-9000-30, PLATINUM-10000-30, PLATINUM-12000-30, TFT-04PL-6000-30, and TFT-06PL-9000-30.
The power supply transformers were sold by HEICO lighting directly to ten distributers nationwide from December 2011 through May 2012.
Consumers should stop using these recalled power supply transformers and unplug them immediately until a free replacement transformer has been professionally installed. Contact HEICO lighting to schedule the free installation of a replacement transformer.
