Dehumidifier Recall

As we all know, the summer months can get stuffy in any residence, making it difficult to relax or get work done while you’re inside. Many people rely on dehumidifier products for these situations, comfortability in their homes, lighter air when they’re sick, and as a cleanup device for sudden leaks or floods, but the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has cautioned customers after they issued a recall notice for several dehumidifier products manufactured by the company, New Widetech. According to the recall, multiple brands of dehumidifiers are at risk of overheating, with around 104 reported products causing property damage after they caught fire within the user's residence. The users in these instances likely had no idea their product contained the defect in the first place, making the $17 million in property damage that resulted from the manufacturing defect all the more unacceptable. 

Product liability laws exist to protect consumers from the consequences of a dangerous or defective product that makes its way to store shelves. Although we might believe that the products we find in stores are safe for use, some manufacturers fail to adhere to proper safety standards and guidelines during production, causing an unsafe product to enter the market. Any consumer who’s injured by one of these products could be eligible to recover damages, as the manufacturer is legally liable for any harm their commodity causes once it’s sold. Some individuals believe that filing a lawsuit against the negligent manufacturer is pointless, as the damage has already been done, but we can assure you that other organizations will see the legal action as a deterrent to commit the same offense, making the world a safer place for everyone.

At Morgan & Morgan, we take every product liability case seriously. No one should suffer an unexpected injury in their home while performing a task that shouldn’t be dangerous in the first place, but manufacturer negligence has made this nightmare a reality. Our attorneys are well-versed in all aspects of product liability law and can help you navigate through the complicated process and come out on the other side with the compensation you deserve, making us an undeniable asset in your pursuit of justice. If your dehumidifier product caused you to sustain an injury or property damage, contact us today for more information about how we can help.

FAQ

Morgan & Morgan

  • What Dehumidifier Products Were Recalled?

    The CPSC issued a recall for numerous dehumidifier brands manufactured by New Widetech after reports of the units catching fire during use. If you own any of the following products, you should discontinue use until you’ve found a safer alternative:

    • AeonAir
    • Amana
    • ArcticAire
    • Commercial Cool
    • Danby
    • Danby Designer
    • Danby Premiere
    • De’Longhi
    • Edgestar
    • Friedrich
    • Generations (Danby)
    • Haier
    • Honeywell (JMATEK / AirTek)
    • Idylis
    • Ivation
    • Perfect Aire
    • SuperClima
    • Whirlpool
    • Whynter

    Some of these brands only have one model that contains a defect, so you should check the CPSC website for more information about your specific product. New Widetech has already stated that they would issue refunds to any customers who purchased a defective device, but this is only a band-aid on the much larger issue. The customers whose devices caught fire have a much larger expense over their head, one that a refund will do almost nothing against. Those who sustained property damage from one of these dangerous products are recommended to seek legal action against the manufacturer to recover damages and ensure they don’t get away with this injustice.

  • What Should I Do if My Product Was Recalled?

    Once you’ve determined that your dehumidifier was subject to the recall, you should contact the manufacturer regarding a refund then dispose of the device. No product is worth sacrificing your health or wellbeing, and there are hundreds of alternative products that don’t contain defects you can purchase for your needs. However, before you purchase a new dehumidifier, you should research the product’s integrity, as you can avoid buying another dangerous device by doing your due diligence beforehand. 

    If you were injured or sustained property damage because of your defective dehumidifier, you should consider taking legal action against the manufacturer, even if the damage was minor. The harm you’ve endured isn’t your burden to bear, as New Widetech should have acted rationally in the manufacturing process to avoid a situation like this. Instead, they chose to act negligently, and their failure to properly safety test is grounds for any victim to seek damages against them. Fortunately for you, our product liability lawyers are some of the best in the business, and we’re prepared to do everything in our power to help you find success in your case.

  • How Can an Attorney Help With a Defective Product?

    The legal side of a defective or dangerous product is a complicated process. You’ll need to know where to start, how to defend the claims in your lawsuit, and have the ability to decipher the legal jargon on all the relevant documents, which can be especially confusing for someone without legal experience. That’s why it’s recommended for anyone who seeks to file a product liability lawsuit to team up with a trusted attorney, one who is knowledgeable about your product’s recall and has the drive to never settle for less than you deserve. 

    Product liability attorneys understand the nuances of the law and can help you file your lawsuit with ease. Once it’s determined that you qualify for a lawsuit, your attorney will begin to file the necessary documents and paperwork that you’ll need to get started. Then, they’ll investigate your case, making sure to gather all applicable information and evidence to ensure your case is as strong as possible. Your attorney will handle the majority of the legal proceedings in your case, acting as a buffer between you and the at-fault organization. They’ll handle all the correspondence, advocate for the maximum compensation, and protect you from a third party’s attempt to diminish or deny your rightful restitution. Although it isn’t required to retain an attorney for your defective product, retaining one sooner rather than later can help protect you from unforeseen roadblocks down the line and, most importantly, give you the best possible chance of recovering what you’re entitled to.

    In the most difficult moments of your life, Morgan & Morgan has your back. There’s no reason that a manufacturer should sell a product that can potentially cause injury or property damage to its user, especially if it’s a product that most people turn on and forget about while they move around their residence. New Widetech’s negligence is unacceptable, as it’s already caused over $17 million in property damage and may cause even more, which is why it’s so important to hold them accountable for their injustice. Other organizations and manufacturers will see that New Widetech was forced to answer for their negligence and, hopefully, change their ways of operation to ensure safety, seeking to avoid a situation where they harm their customer base. 

    Morgan & Morgan’s product liability lawyers stand with the victims of this recall and for all others in the future. If you were injured or sustained property damage due to New Widetech’s negligence, we’re here to help you recover every cent of the compensation you deserve.
