My Lakewood 5101 scalded me!

Pros:Low price and efficient heating.

Cons:Exploding hot oil and hot to the touch.

With less than a week of use, my two Lakewood 5101 oil-filled heaters simultaneously exploded and hot oil scalded my face. I am now permanently disfigured. The odd thing is, I was shopping in a local WalMart last week and saw the identical heater, now re-labled the model 2727. They are identical to the 5101 models which were re-called - 70,000 +. I pray the 2727 models have been improved and are indeed not the same as the horrible 5101 exploding oil models from a couple of years ago.
