  • 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 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.

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

      I still have one more though.

      Thank you!

        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.

              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.
