Tank top propane heaters are being recalled by Harbor Freight Tools due to burn hazard

Tank Top Propane Heaters Recalled Due to Burn HazardHarbor Freight Tools is recalling about 350,000 One Stop Gardens 15,000 and 30,000 BTU Tank Top Propane Heaters.

In windy weather, the flame can be directed to the back of the heater, which can melt the “tip switch” safety shut off feature at the back of the heater. This poses a risk that the heater won’t turn off if it tips over and poses a burn hazard to consumers.

The firm has received reports of nine incidents of flame redirection to the back of the heater and/or the tip switch safety feature melting. Three of these incidents resulted in minor burns when the consumers attempted to turn off the heater.

This recall involves the One Stop Gardens 15,000 BTU Tank Top Propane Heater, Item #63073, and the One Stop Gardens 30,000 BTU Tank Top Propane Heater, Item #63072.

The heaters are designed to mount on top of a standard 20 lb. propane tank. They have an “easy start” with variable heat control valve, high efficiency heat reflector, and safety shutoff.
