Sony just issued a warning saying that you should stop using the Sony VAIO Fit 11A notebook as it might catch fire.

Sony issued a product warning for the VAIO Fit 11A computer. Some of the internal, non-removable battery packs provided to Sony by a 3rd party supplier and included in Sony VAIO Fit 11A released in February 2014 have the potential to overheat resulting in partial burns to the housing of the PC.

Sony says that if you have one or more of the Sony VAIO Fit 11A models with product name: SVF11N1XXXX, immediately discontinue use, shut down and unplug the PC.

Sony is currently identifying affected PCs by serial numbers and developing a program to repair or replace the affected PCs at no charge, or to refund the purchase price for the affected PCs, in accordance with the program.

Sony expects to post a program announcement with details within two weeks.
