Description The recall includes Insolroll roller shades available with a solar powered motor (model #IN-SOL-R) or rechargeable motor (model #IN-RCG-R). The model numbers are printed on the body of the motor located inside the roller tube. These rechargeable motors on Insolroll interior solar screen and blackout shades have built-in lithium ion batteries that are used with a solar panel charger or plug-in charger. The 18-inch width by 1-5/16-inch high solar panel charger is white on the interior side and black toward the exterior. The plug-in charger is black and measures about 3-inches high by 1-5/8 inch wide by 1-1/16 inch deep with a 13-foot cord. The motors raise and lower the shades controlled by a hand-held remote control or surface-mounted wall switch. The manufacturer's name is printed on a sticker on the roller tube that can be seen by taking down the shade and removing the fabric completely.
Problem The motor of these roller shades has a built-in lithium battery that can overheat while being charged, posing a fire risk.
