Lenovo is voluntarily recalling 160,000 ThinkCentre M70z and M90z all-in-one (AIO) desktops sold between May 2010 and January 2012.
Due to a failure of the power supply in the affected all-in-one PCs, the system can overheat, posing a fire hazard it said in a recall notice.
The Chinese giant has already received two reports of fires that resulted in damage to the PC.
“Lenovo recommends that you should immediately stop using the affected desktop PC, and unplug the power cord. Only certain of the ThinkCentre M90z and M70z PCs sold in this timeframe are affected, and all of the affected systems can be identified by machine type and serial number.”
Lenovo is offering power-supply replacements for all affected ThinkCentre desktops free-of-charge.
Customers should immediately contact Lenovo Services Australia on 131-426 or New Zealand on 0800-733-222, or visit online to determine if their desktop is part of the recall and schedule a service appointment for power supply replacement.
There is an online tool to determine whether your ThinkCentre M70z or M90z PC is affected by the recall.
