Millions of dehumidifiers have been recalled since 2009 because of the risk of overheating and sparking fires. Fires started by these appliances have caused millions of dollars in property damage and threatened the safety of sleeping families. While these defective devices were generated by companies based in China like Gree, LG Electronics, and Midea, their defective dehumidifiers have been sold in the U.S. under familiar and trusted brand names the include Comfort-Aire, GE, Kenmore, and Frigidaire.
Although the dehumidifiers that pose a danger have been recalled, fires continue to be reported. Because a mere six percent of consumers respond to recalls, it is hardly surprising that fires continue to threaten homes and pose a risk of causing burn and smoke inhalation injuries. If you own a dehumidifier, you should check to ensure that your device has not been recalled. Consumers who find that their device appears on the list of recalled units should immediately discontinue use and unplug the device.
