A table saw sold exclusively at Lowe's stores nationwide is being recalled due to potential fire hazards, according to the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

The recall involves Porter-Cable brand 10-inch table saws with model number PCX362010. The company that made the saws, Chang Type, has received 61 reports of the table saws overheating and causing fires. One consumer reported smoke damage to his or her home. No injuries have been reported.

The saws were sold at Lowe’s stores from June 2016 through September 2018 for between $100 to $180. They have a gray body with black accents and the Porter-Cable logo. The model number and serial number are printed on the table saw’s nameplate, located on the back of the saw body near the bottom.

Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled table saws and contact Chang Type at (877) 206-7151 or recallrtr.com/PCSaw for a refund.
