Sears and Kmart are recalling more than 40,000 Kenmore Oscillating Fan Heaters due to fire and burn hazards.

Broken motor mounts can cause the units to overheat, catch fire and ignite items near, posing a fire and burn hazard to consumers. According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission, Sears and Kmart have received seven reports of the fan heaters smoking or catching fire.

If you have this fan heater, you should unplug it and return it at Sears or Kmart for a refund.

The heaters were sold nationwide from September 2013 through November 2013 for $35 and $40.
