  • ALERT: Recall of more than 280,000 ceiling fans for dangerous defect.
  • The fans, sold at Lowe’s, are being recalled because the glass globe can become disconnected and fall off.
  • These are the Harbor Breeze Kingsbury fans, manufactured before December 2018.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPS) ad that more than 280,000 indoor ceiling fans sold at Lowe’s are being recalled because the glass globe can disconnect and fall.

Harbor Breeze Kingsbury fans, manufactured prior to December 2018, have a bronze finish and five reversible blades with a 70-inch span.

They also have a frosted glass light, which is the cause of the recall, and a remote control.

According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, the company HKC-US has received 76 reports of falling balloons, four of which resulted in glass breakage injuries.

However, new installation instructions are available to help consumers correct the problem, the company said.

The fans were sold in Lowe’s stores nationwide and on the store’s website from April 2010 through December 2018 for about $ 230, the commission said.

Consumers are encouraged to contact HKC-US to request a new owner’s manual and light kit label to help ensure proper installation of the light globe.
