Digital Timers Recalled By Intermatic

Comments Off

Intermatic Inc., in conjunction with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of certain Intermatic Electronic Timers.

When consumers trying to replace the timer’s battery place a metal object through the battery tray slot, the object can reach internal metal contacts, posing a shock hazard to consumers.

To date, the company has received 12 reports of consumers receiving a minor shock while attempting to change the timer’s battery.

The recall includes the following Intermatic model numbers sold at stores nationwide:

ST01, ST01C, ST01AC, ST01AC70, ST01C70, ST01CL, EI600C, EI600LAC, EI600LAC8, EI600WC and EI600WC8

Timers with no date codes on the inner door panel are affected.

Consumers avoid changing the timer’s battery until they have received a free repair kit with installation instructions.
