Canadian Tire is recalling its Motomaster HotWash Windshield Washer Fluid heater due to a manufacturing defect reports Halton Hills Fire Protection & Prevention Services. A defective relay mechanism in some of the units is defective, causing the potential for the relay to stick and overheat. Customers can identify defective units by checking the outer casing of the product. If it contains the words `patent pending,' the unit is not defective and therefore not included in the recall.

Units that don't contain the `patent pending' reference may be defective and customers should call 1-866-6709962 to determine if their unit is included in the recall and get a free replacement unit. While Canadian Tire hasn't been notified of any injury caused by the potential defect, the company has received 11 separate reports of incidents in which the heater started smoking. Customers are requested to immediately discontinue use of the heater.
