Craftsman air compressor recall

I had gotten a recall notice in the mail from Sears, about my 2005 home air compressor. Evidently the motor can get too hot with the factory shroud, and catch fire. They are replacing the shroud.

I looked it up online and found the following link, that shows all the models (which are several) and other brands produced by the same company.

The recalled compressors were sold under the Craftsman, EX-CELL, Porter-Cable and Pro-Air II brand names.

Sold at: EX-CELL, Porter-Cable and Pro-Air II-brand compressors were sold by industrial and construction distributors from July 2003 through December 2008 for between $259 and $299. Craftsman-brand compressors were sold at Sears stores nationwide from July 2003 through December 2008 for between $279 and $329.

Just passing this along as a public service announcement, in case any of our members may have one of the affected models.

My buddy has a Craftsman and he recently got a big box from UPS with new sections of plastic shroud and installation instructions. They must have added additional vents in the shrouds or something.
