Kenmore Dehumidifiers Recalled For Fire, Burn Hazards – VA Recalls

August 5, 2013 by Parrish Law Firm, PLLC

A number of Kenmore dehumidifiers have been recalled because of an overheating hazard that poses burn and fire risks to consumers, reports the Consumer Product Safety Commission.

Around 795,000 dehumidifier units, manufactured by LG Electronics Appliance Co. in China, and sold exclusively at Kmart and Sears (both in-store and online) between 2003 and 2009 for a price of $140 – $220 have been recalled because of a tendency for them to overheat, melt, and catch fire, posing burn and fire hazards to consumers.

The recall includes Kenmore brand 35-, 50- and 70-pint dehumidifiers manufactured by LG, made from white plastic with a Kenmore logo on their front panels. For complete details on the recalled products, click here.

There have been seven reports of dehumidifier fires, including one that resulted in severe burns to a consumer’s foot. Three other fires caused more than $300,000 worth of property damage.

If you own one of these defective dehumidifiers, you should turn off and unplug the product immediately and contact a Recall Fulfillment Center to receive a Sears gift card and a Sears $25 coupon towards a new Kenmore dehumidifier.
