Hello. My name is ***** ***** I will be helping you today.

There was a recall on these to add a deflector that kept stuff from entering the intake. So obviously someone was concerned. Im not sure that has anything to do with why yours caught fire though. I would assume there is more to your question and I will stand by awaiting for the rest of it.
