Cooper Lighting has issued a recall for All-Pro and Defiant solar-powered outdoor LED light fixtures because the batteries in the solar-powered light fixtures can overheat and cause the light fixture’s housing to melt, posing a fire hazard.
This recall involves solar-powered, motion-activated outdoor LED light fixtures sold under the All-Pro and Defiant brands. The model number is displayed on the interior of the fixture. The Defiant MST1000LWDF, All-Pro MST800L, and All-Pro MST800LW all have two light sources on top of a housing with a round motion sensor on the bottom of that housing. The All-Pro WPS2040M has a flat housing with the LED light source in the center of the housing and an integrated motion sensor lens and dimmer above the motion sensor. All the light fixtures are connected by wire to a solar panel.
About 350,000 units (in addition, about 11,963 were sold in Canada) were sold at Home Depot, Lowe’s, and other stores nationwide from September 2015 through July 2018 for about $70 to $100.
Cooper Lighting has received seven reports of light fixtures overheating and property damage. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled lighting fixtures and contact the Eaton Customer Service Center for a free replacement battery pack. Eaton will ship the replacement battery pack with step-by-step battery replacement instructions.
