Are your Major Household Appliances on a recall list?
Having one of your major household appliances malfunction is never convenient, but could your issue be from a company-wide recall?
With any major household appliance, there are bound to be glitches and problems. Companies that manufacture your Refrigerator, Oven and Range, Dishwasher, Washer and Dryer are no exception. These recalls can be due to any sort of problem: faulty wires causing fires, electrical failures, smoking parts, leaking water, faulty parts that stop working after so many uses; the list could be endless.
As a consumer: the best course of action is to register your appliances to receive notification of any recalls or safety issues.
According to a Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) Report, major appliances caused more than 150,000 residential fires, resulting in 3,670 injuries, 150 deaths, and $547 million in property damage. Most home fires are attributable to electrical, mechanical, or design problems associated with ranges, dryers, air conditioners, refrigerators, and dishwashers! Scary!
It’s important that you register each of your major appliances so that you receive notification in the event of a recall. Even if you have registered an appliance with the manufacturer, you still can miss important communications regarding potential safety issues!
It’s always a good idea to periodically check to make sure none of your appliances have been recalled. To view information on recalled appliances, visit the CPSC website. To report an issue or view safety complaints, visit SaferProducts.gov.
