Electrolux Group has announced that it’s recalling some Frigidaire and Kenmore electric ranges. These were first recalled in 2009 due to the heating elements turning on itself!

That’s scary! This recall is being unannounced because not everyone had the issue taken care of when they first issued the recall.

This isn’t a small recall, it affects around 203,000 Frigidaire, Frigidaire Gallery, Frigidaire Professional, and Kenmore Elite smooth-top electric ranges.

This new notice of recall was posted recently by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. It looks like these appliances were sold between June 2001 and August 2009 at Sears and independent stores nationwide.

It’s not just the turning on spontaneously, which is enough, but they have also stayed on even though the user has switched them off. The temperatures have also not been correct!

Since the first recall announcement in 2009, there have been reports of 14 fires and 8 that included injuries.

On top of that, they have received 212 reports of the ranges having abnormal function.
