Additional information:
The US Consumer Product Safety Commission (“CPSC”) reports this recall involves HDX and Powermate brand two-gallon Electric Air Compressors. Each Air Compressor has a pair of one-gallon tanks that are stacked upon each other. The air compressors are 120-volts, have an operating pressure maximum of 100 PSI and air delivery of 0.4 SCFM at 90 psi. The HDX air compressors are gray with HDX printed in white on the top cylinder.

The HDX model number/SKU numbers include VSP0000201.HDX, VSP0000201.HDX1 and 947282, with numeric serial numbers. The model and serial numbers are printed on a sticker on the back of the top air compressor cylinder. The Powermate Air Compressors are red with the brand, “Powermate” printed in white on the top cylinder. HDX or Powermate Compressors with a letter in the serial numbers are not included.

Powermate model numbers include VSP0000201, VSP0000201.01, VSP0000201.KIT and VSP0000201.NS with numeric serial numbers.

According to the CPSC, the terminals of the pressure switch can come into contact with the motor housing and electrify the recalled Air Compressors, posing a shock hazard to consumers.
