Electrolux Home Products Inc., of Augusta, Ga., has recalled Electrolux ICON and Kenmore Pro 30” Gas Ranges. An incorrect part allows more fuel to pass to the range’s oven than can be burned efficiently, causing incomplete combustion and the release of carbon monoxide. This poses a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning to consumers. Electrolux has received four reports of incidents involving carbon monoxide being released from the recalled gas range. No injuries have been reported. The ranges were sold at appliance retailers nationwide from August 2008 through October 2009 for between $2,500 and $3,500.
Consumers should immediately stop using the range’s oven and contact Electrolux for the Electrolux ICON, or Sears for the Kenmore PRO, to schedule a free repair. Consumers can continue to use the cooktop (top burners) and the broiler as well as any clock and/or timer functions.
For additional information, contact Electrolux toll-free at (888) 360-8557 or visit the firm’s Web site at www.gasrangeorifice.com. Consumers with Kenmore PRO brand ranges should call Sears toll-free at (800) 733-2299.
