Here's the other thread you were looking for about this issue. I'm going to lock that one and link here since this is a more appropriate forum for this discussion.

Stealth PRO Submersible Heater (100, 200 and 250 watt) Recall

Also going to say I've been running one of these for about 4 months now with no issues, but now I'm nervous.

If you google it, you can find pics on another forum of one that exploded and cracked the fish tank when it did.

It's about time they recalled this junk. Sure took long enough.

And FWIW, I'm friends in real life with that poster from Fishlore. She is registered on this site as well. This is not an internet product smear.

IMO they should all be recalled. I have had 2 250's. The end cap on top came off of both of them, after about 6 months, blew my main breaker and nearly destroyed my tank.

I went to PetSmart today, specifically asked if they were taking the recalls, and they said yes.

So... it's official. Thanks for posting!

I was going to check w/ my Petco to see about the recall today, but ended up w/ a bad cold and couldn't convince myself to go anywhere, (or even pick up a phone... I was lazy. lol).

If Petsmart is accepting returns due to the recall, then I would think that Petco would do the same. I'll check w/ mine tomorrow, (since I have to go to work anyway), and I'll post what they say.

So If I bought it at another Lfs I would have to go there and ask them about it?

heater replacement

Folks,
I also have a new Marineland 50w heater I just put in tank a week ago! Person at Petsmart said they will accept return for store credit.
Question--I see folks recommend the Eheim -Jager heaters. What model is the fully submersible one? I see folks using the term EBO, I also see they have a new "TS" version. I also see at another local place fish store on the Jager heaters a "sticker" placed on outside of boxes "fully submersible" UL approved" ---the sticker seems like they updated old stock with an updated sticker.
Is "EBO" just a part of the company name? Eheim Ebo-Jager heaters? Is "TS" the model I want?
Thanks
