St. Louis, MO — Nidec Motor Corporation and Emerson Motor Company, a division of Emerson Electric Co., along with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced a voluntary recall of Ecotech EZ® Variable Speed pool pump motors for electrical shock hazards the product poses to consumers. The CPSC announced the nationwide product recall on October 11, 2011.

The recall was issued after discovering that the pump cover is not properly grounded, which poses an electrical shock hazard to consumers.

“The recalled motors are variable speed swimming pool pump motors with a 6.5 inch diameter steel frame painted black with a square or C-flange mounting. The rating plate is on the side of the pump and ‘EMERSON. CAT.NO.EVSS3’ and ‘MODEL M63PWBLE-121.H.P. 3.0, S.F.1.15’ is printed on the plate,” the CPSC reported.
