Lenovo Expands Recall of ThinkCentre Desktop Computers

1 comment

Lenovo, working in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), is recalling more computers due to a defect in the power supply which can cause the unit to overheat, posing a fire hazard. The first recall was initiated in March 2012.

To this date, the company has been notified of one fire incident and one smoke incident. However, no injuries have been reported.

The recall involves all-in-one desktop computers, or PCs, with flat-panel monitors and a PC integrated into the monitor housing. The power supplies are also located inside the monitor or PC housing. The CPSC has photos of the recalled computers for reference. Below are the model numbers and date codes affected by the recall.


Date Codes




1001 to 1012

1101 to 1112

1201 to 1203

001 to 012

101 to 112

201 to 203

Consumers will need to check the serial number on their computer with Lenovo to determine if it is subject to this recall.

Consumers are urged to stop using the recalled computers immediately and to unplug the power supply. The company should be called to schedule an appointment for a free replacement of the power supply. Due to this recall being an expansion from the March recall, even those consumers who called back in March should again verify their computer is not involved in this expanded recall.

For more information, contact Lenovo at (855) 248-2194 or visit them online at www.lenovo.com/aiopsurecall.

    Laptops solved the problem of putting the power supply inside the system itself. They include it in the power cable. Computers use lesser electricity than what the mains offer, the power supply steps down this electricity. The solution for all in one could be similar to what laptops did. I believe it could solve the problem.
