View Full Version : OT - Humidifier recall...

Check yours. Hundreds of models and dozens of brands from about 2003 to 2015. All use the same "guts" from one Chinese source. Bought mine 2 years ago; a good American :rolleyes: brand - Frigidaire. I qualified for a $96 refund or a replacement unit. Went for the replacement.

All I had to do was send them a picture of the power cord cut off and the serial numbered plate.

Thanks for the heads up. My garage unit qualified.

Shoot! Two months ago I got rid if two broken units that would qualify. :(

I still have one more though.

Thank you!

Start scrounging around garage sales and Craigslist ;)

Of course I meant to type DEhumidifier

I had a Sears unit that fell into a similar recall about 3 years ago. I had to cut the plug off of it and send it to them. I took the $96, which is the same they are offering for these units.

Thanks Lakeside,
Found one at my moms place.

Not surprised. There's 3.4 million in the USA plus another 850,000 in Canada! Most of which I suspect will never be returned.

I disabled mine yesterday. I'm going to donate it to the HVAC program at the school. I opted for a replacement.
