Recall: Bosch Sanders

Important safety information

Voluntary safety-related recall of sander series PSS 2, PSS 20, PSS 190, PSS 200, PSS 250 und PSS 2000 – involving sanders produced in the period of June through August 2007 +++ Effective immediately, these sanders may no longer be used or provided to others.

Bosch Power Tools attaches great importance to the quality and safety of its products. User satisfaction is our highest priority. We would therefore like to inform you of a voluntary safety-related measure.

In the course of our ongoing quality controls we have determined that a material defect of the ventilation wheel can occur with a limited number of sanders. This could cause a break of the device housing and smaller parts of the ventilation wheel could be ejected. It cannot be ruled out that this could lead to injuries. Further, live components could be exposed which in a worst case scenario could result in a life-threatening electric shock. However, we are not aware of any such cases.

In order to meet our responsibility towards our clients, we have decided to recall the affected devices as a precaution and exchange them for new devices. Naturally, this exchange will be free of charge to the users.

With immediate effect, the sanders involved may no longer be used or provided to others. Should you have meanwhile resold a potentially affected device or passed it on to others, we kindly request that you pass this safety warning on to the recipient as quickly as possible so as to ensure that these products are no longer used.

This involves sander series PSS 2, PSS 20, PSS 190, PSS 200, PSS 250 and PSS 2000 which were manufactured from June through August 2007. They can be clearly identified by their serial numbers:
