Electrolux ICON, Kenmore PRO Gas Range Recall: Carbon Monoxide Risk

About 900 Electrolux ICON and Kenmore PRO gas ranges have been recalled due to a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) announced the gas range recall on Tuesday, after the manufacturer, Electrolux Home Products Inc., received four reports of the gas ranges releasing carbon monoxide. No injuries have been reported in connection with the defective ranges, but exposure to carbon monoxide could result in potentially life-threatening injuries.

According to the CPSC, an incorrect part on the gas ranges may allow too much fuel to pass into the range’s oven, which cannot burn all of it efficiently. This causes incomplete combustion and the release of carbon monoxide gas.

Carbon monoxide is invisible, tasteless and odorless, which can result in prolonged exposure. Carbon monoxide poisoning is the most common cause of poisoning in the U.S., with 40,000 people injured by undetected leaks each year. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure include headaches, nausea, light headedness, and flu-like symptoms, which are often mistaken for some other illness, resulting in prolonged exposure.

The recall includes Electrolux ICON and Kenmore PRO 30” free-standing gas ranges with serial numbers between NF83000000 and NF93633000. The Electrolux ICON ranges have a model number of E30GF74HPS, located with the serial number on the back of the range. The recalled Kenmore PRO ranges have the model numbers 790.76913800 and 790.76913801, which is located with the serial number near the base of the range, just below the bottom right portion of the oven door, and on the back of the range.

The recalled gas ranges were made in Canada and sold nationwide by a number of retailers from August 2008 through October 2009 for between $2,500 and $3,500.

The CPSC recommends that consumers stop using the range’s oven immediately and contact Electrolux for the ICON and Sears for the Kenmore PRO to schedule a free repair. The CPSC says that it is safe to use the top burners, broiler and any clock or timer functions.
