CLEVELAND (AP) -- The maker of the Dirt Devil is recalling about 20,000 Sweeper Vac battery-powered upright vacuums because they can overheat and start a fire.

No injuries have been reported, Royal Appliance Mfg. Co. said Tuesday.

The recalled vacuums were made in China and have "Dirt Devil" and "Sweeper Vac" printed on the front and model number M083000 and plant Code J printed on a silver plate on the back. They were sold from November 2003 through November 2004 for $30 to $40.

Royal Appliance, based in Glenwillow, said customers should stop using the product and contact Dirt Devil for a free replacement.

The Dirt Devil recall hot line is 800-805-9536.
