Never went to the new Stealths thankfully, and I'm in the process of changing out the original stealths that I have.

Yep,  Been rumors of a potential recall for a while now.

Glad to hear Petsmart took it back no questions asked.  I have a 250w I'll trade in sometime this week.

Hello All,

I recently found this out and wanted to share.

Marineland Stealth PRO Submersible Heaters (100, 200 and 250 watt models) are to be recalled due to the potential for explosion and excessive cases of defect from the general public.

Here's the article I've read.

forum.simplydiscus.com/showthread.php?85...th-pro-heater-recall

Also note:  I had the 250 watt model and just this past weekend took it to Petsmart.  I did not have my receipt as I purchased the heater over a year ago and without any hassle, I was instantly given a gift card for the value of the heater. I ended up getting the Aqueon Submersible Heater (250 watt).  KUDOS!!! PETSMART!!!
