While your Haier America refrigerator may be working just fine, it could be involved in a recent recall due to the potential of a short circuit in a component that could become a fire hazard. Just this October, Haier has recalled some 137,000 units for this reason.
The basis for the Recall
Haier America has received three reports of smoke and/or fire involving these 10.1 cubic foot capacity top freezer units. They were primarily sold through Lowes, as well as independent retailers throughout the U.S., between September 2014 and September 2016. There were available in black, white, and stainless steel exteriors. The recall was issued through Haier America in coordination with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
Model and Serial Numbers Involved
This Haier America recall includes model numbers HA10TG31SB, HA10TG31SS, and HA10TG31SW with any serial numbers containing the following two-digit combination found in the 14th and 15th positions of the total number – E9, EA, EB, EC, F1, F2, F3, F4, F5, F6, F7, F8, F9, FA, FB, FC, G1, G2, G3, G4, G5, G6, G7, G8, G9, or GA. These units were priced between $400-500.
