AIKOU branded Hot Air Guns, sold with a model number of AK047, an unknown batch/lot designation and an unknown barcode/EAN.

These AIKOU branded Hot Air Guns are marketed and sold as hand-held AC-powered hardware tools with a red case and black trim and designed to concentrate high heat in a small area to remove paint, strip wallpaper and spot dry heat sensitive surfaces. The product was known to have been sold online, in particular through Amazon.com under an ASIN designation of X0012ZXNHR

No barcodes, EANs, UPCs, item numbers, best-before date codes, manufacturing date codes, batch/lot designations, production dates, expiry dates, regulatory approval designations, registration numbers, agency approval designations or other identification numbers were listed with this recall notification

The type of hazards presented in these recalled AIKOU branded Hot Air Gun products include the reported finding that the fuse supplied with the power tool does not contain an adequate amount of granular filler necessary to protect the device from electrical short circuit and the operator from electric shock and/or burns.

As a direct consequence of this reported defect, the AIKOU branded Hot Air Guns lack sufficient electrical insulative protection for people who utilize the product in a reasonable manner expected with its intended use and therefore, do not comply with the requirements of Europe’s Low Voltage Directive, the relevant European standards EN 60335-1 and EN 60335-2-45 as well as the relevant national standard.

Consequently, a recall of these recalled AIKOU branded Hot Air Guns and a destruction of the product by the importer has been ordered.
