Wagner Recalls Paint Sprayers

Wednesday, May 13, 2009

Comment | More

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with Wagner Spray Tech Corp., has announced a voluntary recall of certain  Wagner Paint Sprayers. Consumers should stop using the recalled products  immediately and return them for repair.


The recall affects about 35,000 sprayers, CPSC said in a  statement. It said the on-off switch could be dislodged from the casing,  resulting in exposure of electrical connections. This can pose an electrical shock hazard to the consumer.


There have been no reported incidents or injuries from the  sprayers, which were manufactured in China and sold for about $99 at chain home  centers and hardware stores nationwide from August 2007 through April 2009.


The recall involves the Wagner Control Spray Plus Model  0414248. This model number can be found on a white label located on the side of  the motor housing. The following date codes are affected by this recall and can  be found stamped on the bottom of the motor housing near the air hose connection:




 

Model Number

Manufactured Date Code

Control Spray Plus

0414248

Y182R thru Y365R

Z001R thru Z366R

A001R thru A021R


Even models that appear to be safe and operating properly  should be taken out of use immediately and returned to Wagner for a free repair,  the company said. No receipt is necessary.


For more information, contact Wagner toll-free at (888)  925-6244 between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. CT Monday through Friday or visit the  firm’s web site at www.wagnerspraytech.com.


CPSC is still interested in receiving incident or injury reports that are either directly related to this product recall or involve a different hazard with the same product. Please visit https://www.cpsc.gov/cgibin/incident.aspx.
