Hazard identified: In all reported cases, the motor failure in fan motors caused the fan blade to burn within the unit. Since these units can be near a residence or other building, the flame could potentially spread and cause property damage or serious injury. As of August 28, 2019, the company has received 5 reports in Canada, and no reports of injury. In the United States, the company has received 1 report, and no reports of injury. In all incidents reported to date, the burning has been contained to the units. In two cases, flames were observed.
