Overheating prompts Robert Bosch Tool Corp. to recall its rotary tool

Posted on August 26, 2015 4:29 pm under Product Liability

Robert Bosh Tool Corp. is recalling about 93,000 Dremel® MICRO™ Model 8050 Rotary Tool after receiving reports that a circuit board may overheat and melt the enclosure, causing burn hazard, the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) reported on Wednesday, August 26.

Also, the CPSC said the speed of the rotary tool may also change to high speed when in use or may not turn off, posing personal injury risk. The affected products have model number 8050 and date codes ranging from 407 to 5056, which can be both found on the product’s name plate. The defective rotary tools were sold at Ace Hardware, Lowe’s, Menards, Home Depot, and other home outlets nationwide between July 2014 and May 2015.

To date, the company has received six reports of incidents associated with the issue. Consumers should contact the company for a free repair.
