I have a Windchaser model# /WHR-1900 Serial #0004394 that apparently overheated and caught fire while in my office this morning. The unit was plugged directly into wall outlet. I immediately uplugged and removed from building. Is there a recall or defect with this unit? I'm concerned had I not been in this could have resulted in a serious event. Can you advise?

I couldn't find anything, but you can do a search here (I didn't get a result, though): http://www.recalls.gov/search.html.
Probably the best bet is to call the manufacturer as well as the US Consumer Product Safety Commission.
