Liebherr-Canada Ltd of Ontario, Canada, has recalled about 2,700 Liebherr Built-In 24-Inch Wide Single Door Refrigerators. The refrigerators were manufactured by Liebherr-Hausgeraete Ochsenhausen GmbH, of Germany. The refrigerator’s door can detach, posing an injury hazard to consumers. Liebherr has received 13 reports of doors detaching, including two reports of injuries involving bruising and strains.
This recall involves Liebherr built-in 24-inch wide single door refrigerators with model numbers R1400, RI1400, RB1400, and RBI1400 sold individually or as a component of side-by-side refrigerators. The refrigerators come in stainless steel and various custom finishes and are built into the kitchen cabinetry. “Liebherr” is written on the top interior control panel. The model number can be found on a label located behind the bottom drawer on the left interior side of the single door refrigerator. The side-by-side refrigerators were marketed as model numbers SBS240, SBS24 I0, SBS245, SBS24I5. This model number is not found on the product. The refrigerators were sold by appliance and specialty retailers nationwide from January 2005 through November 2009 for between $2,500 and $3,200.
Consumers with recalled refrigerators should contact Liebherr immediately to schedule a free in-home repair. Consumers should check their refrigerator immediately to see whether the door hinge pin has become loose. If the hinge has not become loose and the door is functioning properly, consumers may continue to use the refrigerator until it is repaired.
