LG Electronics Inc. has recently issued a recall for approximately 161,000 electric ranges. The recall is to provide repairs for a defect with the burner heat setting controls, which poses a potential burn and fire hazard to consumers.
Specifically, the recall affects LG electric range models LRE30451, LRE30453, LRE30755, LRE30757, and LRE30955ST. LG has announced that the units subject to recall have serial numbers starting with 512, 601, 602, 603, 604, 605, 606, 607, 608, 609, 610, 611, 612, 701, 702, 703, 704, 705, 706, 707, 708, 709, 710, 711, 712, 801, 802, 803, 804, 805, 806, 807, 808, 809, 810, 901, 902, 903, 904, 905, and 906. Model and serial numbers can be found on a label that can be seen by opening the storage drawer at the base of the unit. Potentially affected models were sold in black, white, and stainless steel, with a smooth black ceramic glass top cooking surface, at Best Buy, Home Depot, Sears, and regional appliance retailers nationwide from January 2006 to June 2010 for between $800 and $1999.
There have been numerous complaints from owners of affected LG electric ranges reporting incidents of burners on the electric ranges failing to turn off after being switched off and the temperature setting increasing unexpectedly during use. Consumers whose burner heat setting cannot be regulated by using the controls or who experience problems with the cooktop burner remaining on after being switched off, are advised to immediately stop any and all use of the affected electric range until LG can provide repairs for the defect. Consumers affected by this recall should immediately contact LG to schedule an in-home repair that LG is providing free of charge.
