The government is making another attempt to warn consumers about potentially dangerous dehumidifiers first recalled last summer.

Sears has re-announced it’s recalling almost 800,000 Kenmore dehumidifiers sold at Sears and Kmart.

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) said the dehumidifiers can overheat, smoke, melt and catch on fire.

The CPSC said it has received more than 100 reports of problems, including fires.

The recall involves Kenmore 35, 50 and 70-pint dehumidifiers.

Consumers should immediately turn off and unplug the dehumidifiers.

Consumers are eligible for a gift card in return of the recall.

Recalled units have the following model numbers:

  • 35-pint (2004) - 580.54351400
  • 50-pint (2003) - 580.53509300
  • 70-pint (2003) - 580.53701300
  • 70-pint (2004) - 580.54701400
  • 70-pint (2005) - 580.54701500
