Another product recall has been issued because of a safety defect that could compromise consumer safety.
This time, a series of self-cleaning gas ranges manufactured by Frigidaire, a company based out of Charlotte, North Carolina, and put up for sale in Lowe’s stores across the country are being voluntarily recalled by the company. These items retailed anywhere from $800 to $1,000 when they went on sale between February and March. Because of the relatively short timespan within which these ranges were sold, only 185 units in total fall within the purview of the recall.
There have thankfully been no injuries associated with the defect at this time. That defect involves a delayed ignition that take place when a user activates either the bake or the broil features on the range. This could pose the possibility of a fire hazard that could endangers consumer in the vicinity by causing property or injury damage. One incident has come to Frigidaire’s attention at this time.
Frigidaire has stated their intention to advise consumers on how they can go about getting a free inspection. If it’s discovered that the defect is indeed present, a free in-home repair will be conducted to fix the problem. In the meantime, anyone who has these units with a model number of LGGF3043KFM and serial numbers ranging from VF20457216 to VF20457555 should cease baking or broiling anything with the ranges until they can be fixed.
