Safety Recall

As always the safety of our customers is our absolute priority.

In cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission, Vornado is voluntarily recalling the VH101 Personal Vortex Heater sold between 2009 and 2018 because it can overheat when in use, posing fire and burn hazards. All VH101 Personal Vortex Heaters in all colors are being recalled: coral orange, grayed jade, cinnamon, fig, red, ice white and black.

If you own a VH101 Personal Heater, please immediately stop use and follow the instructions below to determine if your heater has been recalled. If your product is subject to this voluntary recall, you will have the option to obtain a free replacement heater or refund of $30 (USD).

For personal assistance with this process, please call Vornado Recall Center toll free at:

Take these steps to ensure your safety:


Turn off your VH101 Personal Heater and unplug it.
