In May of 2021, GE Appliance sold their Free-Standing and Slide-In Electric and Gas Ranges in Lowe’s, Home Depot, Best Buy, and other home improvement and home appliance stores nationwide, as well as online through July 2021. Depending on the model, their costs ranged anywhere between $580 and $4,600. The appliance company was able to sell over 132,000 units in the United States, with roughly 12,960 units released in Canada. However, on December 08, 2021, GE issued a recall on their products after a report that the ranges could tip over due to their weight when a heavy object is placed on the opened oven door. Another report noted that when not secured to the wall or floor, the anti-tip-over bracket poses a tip-over hazard and risk of burn injuries from hot food or liquids in cookware.
How to Know if Your GE Range Was Recalled
This recall involves the 30-inch, 24-inch, and 20-inch free-standing and slide-in electric and gas ranges with seven brand names, including GE, GE Profile, Café, Haier, Hotpoint, Crosley, and Conservator. The brand name, model number, and serial number are all printed on a label that is visible on each unit. The affected ranges have a serial number that begins with either “HS” or “LS” and a model number prefix for easy identification. To see if your model number is included in the recall, you can review the chart on the official recall posted by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
